As we kick off the 2017-18 school year, I would like to say how excited I am to return to Thomasboro Academy for the seventh 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 7 years old and in the 2nd 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 24th. Our Open House for Kindergarten will take place on Wednesday, July 19th from 4:00-6:00PM. We will start in the cafeteria. Our Open House for 1st-8th grades will take place on Thursday, July 20th from 4:00-6:00PM. There will be staff members at the front of the school to alert you 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. We will hit the ground running on July 24th, so please make sure your child/children are ready and here by 8:15AM.
