Sharing Cultures & Traditions

As different holidays approach, we would love for you to come in and share different traditions that your family celebrates or participates in! These could be religious holidays, cultural traditions, etc. Please let me know if you have any interest in sharing with our class at any point in the school year.

Recess Weather

The weather is changing and we will continue to go outside for recess unless the wind chill is below 25 degrees. Please be sure to send a coat, gloves and/or hat with your child for recess when the weather requires it.

Vision Screening

On November 16th, 1st grade students at Thorpe Creek will be given a vision screening. Dr. Jim Daugherty and Dr. Jillian Pall from Fishers Eye Care will be doing the vision screens for all of our 1st grade students throughout the district. There is no cost for the vision screening and you will be notified if your student’s results indicate a concern.
