Message from Mr. Antone
Dear Thoreau Elementary Families,
My name is Daryl Antone, I am the newly appointed principal for Thoreau Elementary School (THE) and it is an honor to begin working with the students, staff, and parents of Thoreau Elementary. I look forward to having a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential as we continue to strive towards student success. With dedication and collaboration from all stakeholders, we will increase scores through the emphasis of teamwork and data analysis, that will help us understand the needs of our students. As we move forward this school year, we will continue to emphasize these concepts and we will also dig deep to differentiate instruction for students so they can be successful. My goal is to create a safe and supportive learning environment that is conducive to student learning. With the team concept, I invite all parents to attend our school activities and meetings to collaborate with THE staff to ensure we are providing our students a high-quality educational foundation. I am pleased to be a part of your school family and I thank you for your support and look forward to a wonderful year!

March 2018 Student of the Month -Ethics
In the month of Ethics, students will learn about the character counts trait, "Ethics". Ethics means:
*Do no harm.
*Make things better.
*Being considerate of the feeling of others.
Teachers will introduce this trait to students and provide information throughout the month, giving students an opportunity to show traits of Ethics. Students will be selected for student of the month based on school wide behavior that provides a good example of Ethics and we will celebrate those students on March 28 at 2:00 PM. You will be notified early that week whether your child has been selected , and invited to attend the recognition celebration to include snacks that you can enjoy with your student. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 505-721-4400.
