Thompson Friday Forecast

November 1, 2019

From the Associate Principal...Dr. Alicia Honnert

This month all students participated in a two-part lesson from Common Sense Education’s K–12 Digital Citizenship Curriculum during their tutorial period. Our goal is to empower students to be safe, responsible, and respectful digital citizens. October's lesson was Don't Feed the Phish: How can you protect yourself from phishing? A Family Tips guide can be found here. You can visit the Common Sense website at for more parent resources to support this learning at home. We are excited to provide this learning opportunity for our students.

Don’t forget to turn your clocks back before you go to bed Saturday Night!

Have a great weekend!


PTO Conference Dinner

Hi Thompson Families! It's hard to believe we are in November already. Parent-Teacher conferences are just right around the corner. The PTO is happy to provide our Thompson staff with dinner on Monday the 25th to keep our teacher's energy up so they can tell us all the wonderful and amazing things our students have accomplished. To do this we do ask for donations in the form of food and supplies. If you are able to participate please see the signup link below!

Thanks so much!
