COVID-19: Thornhill Update and Learning Plans
In the midst of these unprecedented times, please know that Mr. Daubenspeck, your teachers, and school staff are hard at work to make this time as bearable as possible. We as a school staff will continually send updates and information as we get it via Konstella and other available channels.
Teachers have all created Continuity Of Education Plans for distance learning. These plans will contain everything you need for "school at home" during the next few weeks - see below for the link to our lesson plans on Konstella:
Thornhill Learning Plans: March 16th - May 1st
In addition, our wonderful librarian, Ms. Fox put together a terrific list of Library Closure Resources and is looking into scheduling some virtual storytimes.
Thank you for your patience during these times of uncertainty. We wish you and your families safety and good health.

BSDD Update: We Did It, Thunderbirds!
Thank you to all the families who contributed and helped us reach our fundraising goal!
Successfully meeting our goal ensures that we can continue to provide PE, library, art, computers, teachers' aides, and so much more.
We blew past our goal in record time this year, raising $212,000 for the school with 59% participation—amazing!
If you missed out on donating during our drive, it's not too late to donate! We'll continue to take donations all year.
