PTA Board Nominations for 2019-20

The PTA needs to fill several Board member positions for the next school year. The PTA is currently seeking members willing to serve on the Nominating Committee. Members of the Nominating Committee will reach out and communicate with adults in our Thoreau community to determine who might be interested and able to serve as a Board member in 2019-20. If you can serve on the Nominating Committee, please contact current PTA President Emily Korff.

Junior Optimist Club

Students can earn service hours by participating in fun monthly projects and helping better our community with the Junior Optimist Club, a new international service club at Thoreau this year that exists in many elementary and high schools, including Madison and Marshall. We meet the 1st/3rd Thursday of every month in Ms. Gabro’s room, A124, during second session (3:10pm-4:05pm) after school. We welcome any new students who may drop by whenever they’d like!

School Store Help
We are looking for volunteers to assist with the Thoreau School Store! It’s open during lunch hours and sells school supplies, etc. for our students and to raise money for our school.
