Welcome Message


Dear Parent/Guardian,


Our goals at Thorne have remained the same: we are committed to ensuring an excellent education for all students and we will accomplish this task by providing rigorous lessons and instruction that will bring out the greatness that dwells within all of them. Our mission is to encourage and educate students to be confident, knowledgeable, responsible and productive citizens in an ever-changing world. It is with your assistance that we will be able to accomplish this task.


Our staff utilizes various teaching techniques to meet each student’s learning styles, we give our best to educate them in foundational skills such as reading, fluency, comprehension and mathematical concepts. Technology is integrated into many lessons.


Malala Yousafzai said: “One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world.”  We agree with her 100%. As the school year progresses, you will realize that we are some of your child's biggest advocates. Thorne staff works tirelessly to ensure that children are welcomed here and provide an atmosphere that is positive, caring and focused on learning. Each child's journey will be one that we truly hope they enjoy and look forward to on a day to day basis. 


Parents, you play such an integral part of this journey. We ask that you do the following on a daily basis:

1. Discuss your child's day. 

2. Review homework with your child.

3. Ensure that they get enough sleep.

4. Assist them in preparing for the next day. 


We look forward to working with you to ensure a great school year. Our doors are always open, ideas are welcomed and again we look forward to working with each and every one of you.
