5th Grade News

June Thompson Elementary School

Arrival Time at Thompson

Did you know that school starts at 7:40 a.m. daily? Here at Thompson, students are arriving late to school. When you are late, you are missing out on VALUABLE learning.

Our school's administration and office staff are doing random attendance checks in classes. For those classes that have 100% of the kids that have arrived on time on the day of the check, the class will receive a small prize. Winning classes will be announced during the announcements.


In addition to the random attendance checks, the class with the fewest tardies in a month time period will earn 30 minutes extra recess with the Ms Campbell. The teacher will earn 30 minutes free time because Campbell will take the class.


Let's hit this one in for a home run 5th grade! We know we can ALL arrive on time to school!

Please help us with following the new dismissal procedures.

We started a new dismissal procedure before break for our walkers, walkers with siblings, and bike riders. To avoid a congestion at the crosswalk, and so our parents can pull their cars out quickly to get the line moving, we are holding the walkers/bike riders until 3:00 in the cafeteria. If you are a parent that walks up to the school to pick up your child(ren), please pick them up at the side cafeteria door entrance. This keeps our students from hanging out by the building and also keeps the first part of traffic flowing for our younger kids that get picked up early.

Remember, if you are late (after 3:05) picking up your child(ren), you are to park and enter through the front office. They will tell you to pick up your child in their classroom (separate classrooms for multiple children) where you are to sign a log that you are late. After 3 late arrivals, you will be contacted by the assistant principal. Thank you for being prompt for our teachers to continue working for the next day!

Come Hear about the New Voting System to Elect School Board Members in CFBISD

The voting system used to elect School Board Members in the Carrollton-Farmers Branch School District is changing. For the May 7, 2016 election, Board Members will be elected using a cumulative voting system. In a cumulative voting system, voters can cast as many votes as there are seats up for election, including multiple votes for the same candidate.

Come find out more information about cumulative voting at one of these Town Hall meetings.
