Thomas Paine Elementary School


Week of 9/16

Our teachers have been hard at work this week, meeting and planning with one another for the school year. The students are also working hard! They are diving deeper into their content in their classes and their routines are becoming more and more a part of their days. The weather is cooling a bit, and we are loving our time in outdoor recess!

September's Core Value

Building Community - WE all belong to our Community!


Please use our drop off and pick up area. This is located at the back of the building, by the bus loop, through Door 11. Any questions - Please call the main office.


If you drop off your student, please enter through the proper entrance on Church Road (there is a one-way sign). Pull in as far as you can - this helps us fit as many cars as needed without clogging Church Road. Please have a quick "Kiss and Go". Staff members are present to help guide the children to the line-up area. Children should arrive no earlier than 8:45am.
