Principal's Welcome

Dear Thornton Creek Community,

It is truly an honor to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year!  I hope this note finds you enjoying the rejuvenating days of summer and that you and your child(ren) are looking forward to beginning a wonderful school year together.  I can assure you that I share in this school community’s commitment to caring for your children each and every day while providing them with a world-class learning environment that supports and promotes social-emotional learning as we meet the needs of every student, every day.

During my tenure as Principal of our Thornton Creek Elementary, conversations with district staff and families continue to bring me privileged insights into the core beliefs and values that underlie our Northville School District.  With my goal of continuing the tradition of excellence here at Thornton Creek, I am committed to exploring new ways to meet the needs of all students and effectively communicate with families and community members.  As has been past practice, I will meet with parents, students, and staff throughout the year to get to know one another and ultimately, to identify specific goals in the areas of student achievement, school climate, and parent communication. 

To our students, both returning and new, I cannot wait to greet each of you upon our return!  I hope you are excited for this coming school year and that you are out this summer playing and reading tons of books with your family and friends.  It is going to be an amazing year as we learn and grow together. If you are nearby the school this summer, please stop by and say hello!

In closing, please know that my door is always open to you.  I heartily welcome your conversation and positive input throughout the year.  Let us always keep our students the primary focus of our work and I look forward to celebrating our collective successes during the 2022-2023 school year.

Enjoy the remaining days of summer!


Mr. Deagon M. Jewett
