October Greetings, Thomas Families!
Wow! What a fantastic first week of October! SuperGames was super fun! This year, SuperGames was focusing on the celebration of our hard work, investing time to learn and employ our 7 Habits! Students were very appreciative of this time. Many thanks to P.T.O. for providing us with such a wonderful opportunity! Great appreciation goes out to Mrs. Burton, our Thomas Physical Education Teacher, for coordinating this special event! Special thanks to all parent and family volunteers who attended in the morning and/or afternoon. Your time was invaluable!!! We could not make this a successful event without you! Check out our website for pictures from the day.
Thomas has a variety of fun-filled events planned this year! Our Parent-Teacher Organization (P.T.O.) started proactively organizing these special events over the summer. Your P.T.O. Executive Board comprised of President Lauri Lewis, Co-VPs Meg Alley and Monique Fournet, Secretary Connie Hamm, and Treasurer Jeff Lewis meet monthly to ensure collaborative communication and positive programming for our Thomas Community. Please see the Thomas website with calendar of events for this school year. Join us at our next P.T.O. Meeting on Tuesday, November 1, 2016, at 6:30 p.m..
This month is packed with movie night (October 14th), Parent-Teacher Conferences, Dine-N-Donate events (October 18th), and our annual costume parade with Harvest Party. We look forward to these times together to enjoy friends, practice our social skills, learn from each other, and build our relationships. E-blasts will be sent prior to each event as a reminder. In addition, events will be posted on our website.
Attending Parent – Teacher Conferences is crucial for learning about your child’s progress. Our staff strives to strengthen the home-school partnership and lines of communication to support your child. Please take time to set up a conference with your child’s teacher on either October 19th or 27th.
Children are most excited for the Thomas Costume Parade and Harvest Party on Monday, October 31st. This will be the actual “Beggar’s Night” for the City of Dublin as well. Beginning with the end in mind, please help your child choose a costume for this school event wisely. We look for positive characters and costumes that will not offend others or scare our younger children. Please leave all props (swords, lightsabers, etc.) and objects which may appear to look like weapons at home. Children will need to have clear vision and movement in their costumes. Thank you for supporting our special event by outfitting your child in an appropriate costume.
Thomas Families, you have been amazing! Your children arrive at school every day with fabulous smiles, ready to learn. That is a tremendous reflection on you! Thank you for supporting school and making education a priority! Together we make a TErrific team!
:-) Mrs. Davis, Principal
