2022 Summer Update
Where does the time go?
It seems like just yesterday I was handing out diplomas to our graduating Class of 2022. Time flies and it is now mid August with a new school year upon us! There is a ton of information included in this newsletter so please read it carefully and call if you have questions. We want all of our students coming back to school refreshed, rejuvenated and ready for the new year.
Welcome back to Thomas High School!
Once you receive your schedule, feel free to have your students stop in anytime to walk their schedule, find and set up their locker and get ready for opening day. We have found this alleviates coming back to school jitters that students may have. We also have a designated Locker Night which has become a popular back to school activity for students and families.
Freshmen Orientation 2022
On Thursday, August 25th we have our Link Crew Orientation for students only. Please drop off your freshman at the front doors and we will take it from there. The orientation goes from 8-12pm.

Freshman/ Link Crew Annual Kickball Game
