Purchase a Thoreau School Directory!
The 2016-2017 Thoreau School Directory is a valuable resource for every family. It includes student names, addresses, parent/guardian names, email addresses and phone numbers. It is a reference you will use many, many times during the year guaranteed to be dog-eared by June! The directory also includes other important information such as room parent names, PTG Board and committee contacts, Thoreau school and district phone numbers and web addresses, the school calendar, and PTG events.The directory is $30/book ($5 for each additional copy). This cost goes toward the PTG budget. The PTG underwrites many programs for students during the year, and we need your help to continue to support Thoreau school and its teachers, staff and students. The deadline for ordering a directory to be delivered at Back to School Night is 9/7. To order a directory online click here or visit and click support thoreau. Alternatively, watch your child’s backpack for a flyer/order form which should come home this week!
