Thomas Paine Elementary School


Week of 10/2

It was a short week, but a busy one. Today we hosted breakfast with our mascot, Tommy the Tiger, and it was a great event! Look out for monthly fun breakfast events. Breakfast is served daily, free and reduced rates apply, otherwise it is $1.60 - a great way to start the day. Join our Breakfast Club!

We also had the opportunity, this week, to practice indoor line-up and recess thanks to our rain on Tuesday.

Have a beautiful fall weekend!!


Parents + Guardians - Please do not use the bus lane/circle to drop off or pick up your children. Additional cars in the morning are causing bus delays and safety concerns. Please utilize the front parking lot for students being dropped off in the morning. I appreciate your response to this concern.

October's Core Value

Respect - WE respect ourselves and others.

Please complete our Voice Survey. This very important survey provides our school with a wealth of information. We appreciate your time!
