Happy April, Thomas Families!

Building News

Outside Recess

Despite the wacky weather, students have been able to spend more time outside:-) Mrs. Ollanketo, our Building Educational Attendant (BEA), does a fabulous job of keeping an eye on the forecast in order for grade levels to play outside between the mist and raindrops.


As we have increasing better weather, we are always looking for new ideas to incorporate on the playground. Please feel free to email Mrs. O. (ollanketo_allison@dublinschools.net) or Mrs. Davis (davis_jennifer@dublinschools.net) to share your innovative thoughts.

Character Strong

Utilizing our social-emotional learning (SEL) curriculum resource, Character Strong: Purposefull-People, Thomas students will study the character trait PERSEVERANCE during the month of April. Perseverance means persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success. We want our children to be able to work through situations even when there are obstacles or challenges in their way.


Families are welcome to visit https://characterstrong.com/ to check out this site. There are free resources including podcasts and weekly strategies to positively impact your daily life:-)


Here are Conversation Starters:


  • Why do you think it is important to persevere even when things get hard?
  • What do you think of when you hear, "Quitters never win and winners never quit?"
