Dear Thoreau School Families,

I hope you and your children enjoyed a fun-filled summer vacation and that you are as excited as we are at Thoreau to start of the 2017-18 school year!  I am looking forward to a fun-filled, productive, year and can’t wait to welcome you and your students back to school on Wednesday morning.

I am thrilled to welcome you back into the Thoreau School community.  If you are new to our school you will quickly realize that you have landed in a wonderful place.  The staff is not only warm, but also incredibly dedicated.  We have been hard at work preparing to welcome your children back to school.
In preparation for the opening of school, I would like to invite you to visit our website: where you will find many helpful links.  At the bottom of this letter you will find a link to our staff list and information about routines specific to our school. On our website you will also find a link to the Thoreau Parent-Teacher Group’s website: Our PTG works to strengthen the home/school connection by supporting our school community in a variety of ways.  Please stop by their website to see how you can get involved in this wonderful organization.

The staff and I are looking forward to a terrific first day of school on Wednesday, August 30, 2017. Please note that this is a full day for students in grades K-5 and that school begins at promptly at 9:00 a.m. with dismissal at 3:30 p.m.  We will begin dismissing the students promptly at 3:30 p.m. and parents who pick up their students should meet them on the black top behind the school near the basketball court.  In the event that it rains, pick up will take place in the cafeteria.

See you soon!

Angel Charles
