On behalf of the staff and faculty of the Thorpe School it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year. We look forward to providing your children with the best overall educational experience possible. A key ingredient to the positive environment fostered at Thorpe is the strong partnership that has been established with members of the parent community.  Your support, cooperation and participation in the educational process are both valued and appreciated!

While Thorpe is a school proud of it’s traditions, we also continually seek ways to enhance and expand the learning opportunities for your children. Utilizing technology as an important instructional tool, and creating a twenty-first century Learning Commons to replace the existing library are just a few examples of the ways we seek to make learning accessible for every student’s unique learning style.

I look forward to seeing you on Opening Day, Wednesday, September 3rd. Weather permitting, students entering grades one through five will gather at 8:20a.m. on Veteran’s Field (the field adjacent to Thorpe) for staff introductions and Opening Announcements.  In case of inclement weather, they will be directed to the school cafeteria.  Also at 8:20AM, Kindergarten students should be dropped off by their parents and guardians in the main lobby of the school.  From there, they will be guided to their classrooms by their assigned teachers and staff members.

Thank you for visiting Thorpe’s website!  You are strongly encouraged to visit here often as we will be updating important information, regularly.  It’s going to be another great year!

Rita Ward, Principal
