All Thoreau students and families are invited to participate in the Share Your Story Night and Scholastic Book Fair which will take place on Thursday, October 13th, 2016 from 6:30pm-8:00pm at Thoreau Elementary School! Students and their families will start out in their classrooms, where the teachers will help them with prompts to share their family's story. Our family stories will be combined into classroom books we all can share and enjoy.
There will be food carts in the back parking lot with several options for dinner!Every family at school will get a dinner voucher. Come hungry! Donations will be graciously accepted to ensure that we are able to provide meals for all of our families.
The Scholastic Book Fair will be set up in the Library this Wednesday and Thursday from 3:15pm-4:15pm and Thursday from 6:30pm-8pm. Bring your gift lists, shop ahead for the holidays, and support Thoreau while you’re shopping! Can’t come to the Scholastic Book Fair, but want to order books?

Dear Thoreau Parents and Staff,
The next PTO Meeting will be held Tuesday, February 9th from 6:30pm-8:00pm at Thoreau in the LMC. The theme is LOVE THOREAU! We will share a meal, talk about volunteer opportunities and have an open forum to discuss ideas and input from all parents and teachers. Have an idea you think the PTO should implement? Come and have your voice heard! The PTO will provide sandwiches to everyone in attendance as a THANK YOU for all of the hard work you do for Thoreau! The activities, events and Thoreau community would not exist without YOU! Feel free to bring a side dish or a dessert to pass but it is not necessary, we are just excited to see you! As always, childcare will be provided. Need a ride? Call Amy in the office at 608-204-6940 and she can help arrange it.
The risers currently used for Ms. Whalley’s wonderful music programs are about 40 years old and need to be replaced. A Go Fund Me to raise money to put towards a new set of risers has been started by a group of Thoreau parents. The new risers will have back rails for safety and hopefully last another 40 years. Please CLICK HERE for more details or to donate! Feel free to share the link with others. If you have questions about this project please contact Tiffany Mack at firstname.lastname@example.org.
