Holiday Food Barrels are Here!

It’s that time of year again where we, as the Thornhill community, come together to help our local families in need.

The Alameda County Food Bank barrels have arrived!

Please help us fill (actually, OVERFLOW!) the barrels this year with non-perishable canned goods and boxes/bags of cereal, oatmeal, rice and pasta. The barrels will be in the school lobby until winter break, so PLEASE take a moment to drop off goods and help other families have a much-needed and happy holiday season.

For more information, go to the Alameda County Food Bank website http://www.accfb.org/.

Thornhill Jr. Warrior Basketball Team

We are looking for students who may be interested in playing for the Thornhill's Junior Warrior Team.  The team welcomes all skill levels and the entire 3rd grade class.

We are still in the process on finding out the details on practice time, game dates and uniforms.    We will send out an additional email with the details once they're confirmed.  We wanted to get a list of interested participants.

I've decided to head up the coaching this year and we are looking for additional parents to help.  I've created a sign up for those parents who are interested.

I promise to make this fun and exciting for all kids involved!
