The PFC Still Needs Your Help

Thanks to all the many intrepid new volunteers who have been signing up for PFC positions. We are excited to have you work with us. A few very important (and some not as important) positions remain. Drama chair. Walkathon Chairs. Auditor. Lice Leader. Enrichment Chair. Spirit Wear. We need a co-chair to pair up with current Dad's Club Chair. Many of these positions can have two members. You and your friend want to bring more Drama to Drama? Have at it. Have awesome ideas for Walkathon? Get some buddies and run it. Help from prior members will be provided.

Please check out PFC Board Members page for a list of board positions and click here for a description. Remember, if interested in any position feel free to reach out to the board member currently in the position to learn more. PFC board members will be happy to get you up and running should you be interested.

*We will be having an adults only recruitment party Thursday, May 28th 7-9pm for any parents who have questions or want to talk to members. Please e-mail personnel@thornhillschool.org if interested or want to find out more.


Pennies for Patients

Hi Thunderbirds!

This is your Community Service Officer Ava.
As we wind down the school year, we have our last community push, Pennies For Patients, which has been a Thornhill tradition for many years. Pennies For Patients is an organization that helps kids with Leukemia, Lymphoma, Hodgin’s disease, and Myeloma.

By collecting pennies (or any coin, or even dollar bills!), we Thunderbirds can help kids and their families. Each kid will get a box to collect donations and then they can bring it to school to put in their classroom Pennies for Patients box.

The fun began this week and will last until June 1, let’s collect some pennies!


Minimum Days June 8th-13th

Just a reminder that the last week of school, June 8th - June 11th are all minimum days.
Kinders are released at 12:50pm and grades 1-5 are released at 1:25pm.
