Hello Parents and Caregivers,

Welcome back to a new year at the Thomson School. I am thrilled to have our students, staff and families back, and I am looking forward to a great year. Welcome to all our returning students and families and a big welcome to all of our new students and families! We are excited to work with all of you this year. Our custodial team has been hard at work throughout the summer getting the building ready for our opening so please join me in thanking Kenny and Steve for all their hard work over the summer!

Here are a few reminders as we begin the new school year....

Student Absences: If your child is going to be absent, please remember to call in to the main office to report the absence. Ms. Memmolo checks the absence line each morning when she comes in.

Parking/Drop Off: The parking lots are for staff only in the morning and we ask that you not drop off your child in the staff lot as it creates a safety issue for your child and others. Please use the Saltonstall drop off if you come by car or if you want to walk to the playground with your child, please use one of the side streets (as long as it is not marked No Parking) and walk across to the school using the crossing guard on Waverly Road.

If your child is in breakfast club we ask that you do not enter the staff parking lot after 7:45 am. Staff is arriving and the crossing guard comes on duty at that time. Please pull off on a side street and have your child walk to our crossing guard who will walk them across Waverly Road.

If your child is in Kid’s Stop after school, please do not park or leave your car running in the fire lane. There should be plenty of spaces in the staff lot that open up after school. Please park in one of the open spaces.

Finally, the handicapped spaces are reserved for folks who need them. We have had some instances of people parking there and saying they just needed to come in for a minute. Thanks for being respectful of this!

Powerschool: Please update powerschool when you change your email, phone numbers, etc. We rely on our powerschool database to contact you when so having the most up to date information is always appreciated. Parents can make the changes themselves and if you are unsure how to do this please contact our school secretary, Amy Memmolo.

Ice Cream Social: We hope you can join us in the Thomson cafeteria from 5:30-7:00 for the annual Thomson Ice Cream Social on Monday, September 17th. The ice cream social is a free event and while you are here that evening you can stop by to visit the book fair. 

The Scholastic Fair is coming to Thomson School: The fall 2018 Scholastic Book Fair will be the week of September 17th-21st. Volunteers are needed to help children choose books and make payments. If you are interested in volunteering an hour or two of your time, please sign up via the volunteer spot by clicking on the link: Just a quick reminder that we cannot guarantee you will placed with your child’s class. The teachers schedule is not yet finalized until the week of the book fair. We need our volunteer schedule set well before that time. Thank you for your understanding.
