On WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29TH, 2018, multiple events will be taking place here at Thornton Creek!

  • NEW FAMILY ORIENTATION - 5:00 - 5:30 PM in the Cafeteria. New Students in Grades 1 - 5, and any Kindergarten student who did not attend Kindergarten Round Up are invited to come to the New Family Orientation.

  • OPEN HOUSE - Grades K-2 from 5:30 - 7:00 PM.  Grades 3-5 from 6:30 - 8:00 PM. Teachers are looking forward to meeting their students and families during these designated times in your child’s classroom.  Please note that as part of the recent bond, among other items, Thornton Creek is the recipient of new, flexible seating for our students. Although you may have seen this furniture last year in grades K-2, our upper elementary classrooms will be receiving this furniture as late as the date of Open House.  With that in mind, we appreciate your “flexibility” when touring the building as we may have rooms still under construction.
