Thompson Friday Forecast
August 24, 2018
From the Principal...Steve Morrill
Welcome Thunder families to the 2018-2019 school year! I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to welcome our students to the new school year on Wednesday. I hope you and your family had an absolutely fabulous summer filled with memorable times! During classroom visits this week, I saw eager, enthusiastic students and teachers ready to begin the year! I am excited about the prospect and opportunities a new school year brings. I am also looking forward to partnering with our families to ensure the best possible year for our students. Thompson has great kids, great parents, and a great staff. I am looking forward to capitalizing on this fact to help create the best year ever for our students!
As I have said in other settings, I am honored to have the opportunity to be your principal. If I can ever be of assistance, please call the main office at 331-228-3100. I look forward to hearing from you!
It has been an exhilarating first few days of school. Our staff is certainly excited to be back and our students have matched their enthusiasm. PTO parents have been extremely helpful with both material pick-up days and in smoothing out opening days. Their willingness to volunteer has been appreciated. Thank you!
And thank you to the 8th grade web leaders who guided our new families at the 6th grade Open Houses on Monday and Tuesday nights ! Your bright smiles and guidance were greatly appreciated by all!
As I have interacted with students over these last few days, I have noticed excellent behavior, attentive audiences, and eager learners. These are all student qualities that tell me our kids are excited to do the best they possibly can.
Enjoy your weekend!
The format for the night will give you the opportunity to meet your student’s teachers, learn about this year’s curriculum, and hear about classroom expectations while following your child’s schedule found in HAC. Students are encouraged to take a picture of their schedule and share it with you. The evening will conclude before 9:00 pm. We hope all will be able to attend!

6th Grade WEB Orientation
The 8th grade WEB (Where Everybody Belongs) leaders welcomed the incoming 6th grade class on Friday, August 17th at the WEB orientation. The morning was filled with fun getting-to-know-you and relationship building activities. WEB leaders also helped share their middle school expertise to help the new Thunder students have an easier transition into middle school. It was a great morning, and we look forward to continued activities throughout the school year!
