Thorntown Elementary School

TES News

Welcome to Thorntown Elementary!

Our students in grades 3-6 will participate in
ISTEP+ testing. 
The second round of ISTEP testing will be April 28-May 9.
Attendance is critical during these weeks.
Providing your child with a good breakfast and a good night's rest will also support their success on the test.

April 25, 2014

Parents may attend any one of the three sessions: 8:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. (children may attend, but are not required to be present to enroll) Students entering kindergarten must be 5 on or before August 1st. Students entering preschool must be 4 on or before August 1st. Parents are required to provide a copy of their child’s birth certificate and immunization records. Proof of residency is also required. Students who are 5 on or before August 1st will not be eligible for preschool. Several income-based scholarships will be available for the 2014-2015 school year. These scholarships will pay for the monthly preschool tuition fees. Any interested family must complete a free/reduced application and qualify based on federal guidelines. The selected scholarship recipients will be selected by a lottery draw. Families who are not selected or who do not qualify will still be permitted to sign up for the paid preschool class. If more than 20 families are interested in preschool, a lottery draw will be held to identify the 20 participating.

We again thank all parents for their cooperation with our new procedures. If you have a different person pick up your child, please inform them of the procedures. When you arrive at school, please join the line on Market Street. Occasionally, parents will enter the parking lot off Mill Street pulling ahead of others. As we move into cooler days and inclement weather, please inform the office if your child will be a car rider as opposed to a walker. The bus drivers continue to comment on the ease of dismissal with less traffic on Mill Street.

Please let the office know if you have a change in home phone number, cell phone, or email.
