Principal's Message

Welcome students, parents, community members, and staff to the 2017-2018 school year!  We at Thoreau Mid School are proud of our experienced teachers, clean hallways and friendly staff.  And we are even more proud of our hard-working, cooperative and talented students!

Please watch for monthly flyers that have informational articles on one side and a school calendar – which includes athletic events – on the other side.  The flyer goes home during the last week of each month with information for the next month.

Please stop by the school any time – if I am not available, you can set up an appointment or work with one of our many qualified “leaders” to resolve issues.  It is extremely important that we work togetherto support your children.  We all want our students to be happy and successful.
