STEM Learner Profile for April is Globally Aware

Keep Your Photo IDs Handy

A new security step has been added for all visitors (parents, volunteers, and guests) entering Thompson District Schools. You must show your photo ID to the camera above the doorbell each time you enter the building. You will need to wear your volunteer badge or a visitor pass if you go beyond the lobby. This is for safety and security for everyone. Thank you for your understanding!

Box Top News

Hello Big T Family,
My name is Kacy Contreras. I'm excited to announce I've been given the privilege of taking over the box top collections. I'm excited to start earning our school some much deserved funding. Along with your help I know we can do amazing things! I will be collecting box tops over the next couple weeks to send in one last bunch before the end of the school year. Please remember to cut out and send the box tops with your kiddos. They can be placed in the baggie inside the Friday folders. Please let me know you have any questions, concerns or ideas on making the collections fun for our kids. Thank you for supporting Big T!

Sincerely, Kacy Contreras

Family After School Club (FASC)

PTA, The Teachers and Staff at Big T would like to invite you to stay and play after school on Friday, April 26th (3:10 and later) for as little or as much time as you would like! Bring snacks, water, etc. But be sure to clean up after yourselves to keep our playground clean! We will do this a few more times throughout the remainder of the school year and are thinking of it as our FASC (Family After School Club). We want the Big T community to have the chance to visit, play and enjoy some time together.

We hope to see you there! Email with any questions.

p.s. PTA, teachers and staff are not responsible for watching your children during this time. Bathrooms will not be available either - sorry!

Field Day

Our Field Day is scheduled for Friday, May 17th. Mrs. Nypaver is looking for parent/student volunteers to run stations. Parent Volunteers need to be registered through VITAL and students need to fill out the volunteer form in the office. Please contact her at if you are able to help all or part of the day. Thank you!

Annual Family Update

If you haven't already done so, please go into Parent Portal to update your child's information. It is under the more section. The update is where you are able to electronically sign permission forms for next year. (You are also able to add your incoming kindergartners.) Thank you!

School Instructional Fee Reminder

If you haven't paid your student's yearly instructional fees, please do so soon. Kindergarten fees are $16 for the year and 1st-5th grade fees are $32 for the year. You can pay online with a credit card or in the office with cash or check. Please make checks out to Big Thompson. If you aren't sure if you've paid you can look on parent portal or ask Brittany in the office.

Thank you!
