As we kick off the 2018-19 school year, I would like to say how excited I am to return to Thomasboro Academy for the eighth year! We have made gains every year, and this year will be no different. It is so exhilarating to watch the students grow and learn throughout the years. This year's 8th grade students were just 6 years old and in the 1st grade when I entered the doors as the Principal of Thomasboro Academy. I have watched them transform into young adults and I am excited to see them through middle school and on to high school successfully. As student leaders of our school, they will do great things this year and be wonderful role models for all the other grades!
I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer and are ready to come back to learn on July 19th. Our Open House for all grades will take place July 17th from 4:00-6:00PM. There will be staff members at the front of the school to alert you to which room to report for Open House. Transportation information will be given out during Open House. Please make sure you receive your bus information before you leave if your students are riding a bus and let the homeroom teachers know how your child will go home from school this year (walker, car rider, day care van, bus).
Our school hours have changed by 15 minutes this year. Doors will open for students at 8:00AM and breakfast will be served until 8:20AM. Students must be in homeroom by 8:30AM. If students are tardy to school, a parent must come into the school and sign them in at the front office. You will need an ID to sign students IN an OUT this year. In addition, if you plan to walk your child to class, you will need an ID and to sign in at the main office on the computer to do so. This is a new safety measure to keep all students, staff, and visitors in our building safe at all times.
We will hit the ground running on July 19th, so please make sure your child/children are ready and here by 8:30AM.
