Dear Thornton Creek Community,
It is an honor to introduce myself as the new principal of Thornton Creek Elementary School and to join this extraordinary school community. 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 a world-class learning environment.
My conversations with district staff and families have brought 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 Elementary School, I am committed to always exploring new ways to meet the needs of all students and to more effectively communicate with families and community members. I will be meeting 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 kick things off, and in unison with the 2018-19 Open House, our first Meet and Greet opportunity will take place on Wednesday, August 29th, from 5:30 - 8:00 p.m. at the Thornton Creek Elementary School big playground. All Gators are welcome to first stop by the main entrance to pick up a popsicle from our PTA president, then head out back to enjoy your cold treat, meet your new principal, see old friends, and make some new ones.
To our students, I cannot wait to meet you all! I hope that 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 a fun year learning together. If you are nearby the school at all 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 2018-2019 school year.
Enjoy the remaining days of summer!
Mr. Deagon M. Jewett
Thornton Creek Elementary School
