5th graders visit Thompson Middle School
One of the many highlights of spring time at Thompson takes place when we begin the process of welcoming our newest Thunder Students! This week, 5th grade students planning to attend Thompson next fall had the opportunity to visit Thompson. As they arrived they were greeted by the friendly faces of student leaders and Thompson staff. It was nice to see their excitement and enthusiasm with a bit of apprehension sprinkled in.
In addition to our student visits, during the past week, these same 5th grade students had two evening opportunities to visit Thompson with their families. Families were able to see the school and meet some of our talented staff! While we are finishing up a successful year, it is certainly inspiring to also focus on some of the transitional activities and events supporting the start of another great year at Thompson Middle School.
Have a great weekend,
From the PTO...8th Grade Party
The 8th grade party is only one week away and we are really hoping for more help with set-up and decorating. If you are free anytime between 2:15 - 6:45 pm on May 20th, please consider signing-up and let us know that you will be there.
Thanks so much to the parents who have already signed up to donate sponsorship, awesome raffle prizes, food, decorations, and their time! The 8th graders will definitely have an amazing end-of-year celebration thanks to you!
Thank you also to our new sponsors!

Thompson’s 8th grade Recognition Assembly will take place on Wednesday, May 25th in the Thompson Main Gym from 11:15 am - 12:00 pm. Parents/Guardians are welcome to join us.

School Supplies for Next Year
Our PTO has teamed up with School Tool Box to give you the option of purchasing pre-packaged school supplies for next year. Place your order online and it will be delivered directly to your home address. You will have the option to customize your order by adding or removing items. Be sure to place your order early to allow plenty of time for your supplies to be shipped to your home before supply drop off day. Please use this link (https://schooltoolbox.com/school-supplies/) to place your order. Please see this flyer for more information.
School supply lists for next year can be found on the Thompson registration page by clicking here. Please call the main office if you have any questions at (331) 228-3100!
Notes from the Nurse…
Please do not forget to pick up all medications by the last day of school! Those medicines not picked up by an adult by May 25th, will need to be disposed of. The only medications that can be given to a student to transport home are those that are allowed to be self carried (Epi Pens, Pancreatic Enzymes or inhalers). If there is a self carry form on file for one of those medications, please remind your student to stop in and pick up medication before leaving on the last day. All medication orders must be renewed each school year. Forms are available on the district web site under “Parents”, then “forms” or by contacting the health office.
Appointments for the required 6th grade and 9th grade physicals tend to fill up quickly and should be scheduled now! Please submit the completed physicals and/or immunizations to the respective schools as they are done. They are required to be submitted for review prior to the first day of school (August 10th).
The health office is closed during the summer months. I will return for limited hours beginning in early August. Please contact me if there are new medical concerns for your child or if your child will need a health plan at school.
Have a safe and healthy summer!
