On behalf of your Thurston Instructional Family, we want to wish you a fun and exciting Spring Break. We recognize that this will not be one of our typical breaks but we still hope and encourage you to make it a fun and exciting one! Whether you pick up a new hobby or dive into learning a new skill, we hope that you will relax and enjoy yourself. Just as we are encouraging you to take this time off, we will be doing the same.
Beginning today, Friday, March 27, 2020 at 4:00pm our instructional staff will be “unplugging” for the break. That’s right, everyone is going to take some time off from work and enjoy themselves. We recognize that there are still some families that may need a little extra support during this time. (On The Thurston Elementary School Homepage you will find) (Below you will find) a universal Spring Break Menu for at-home family support. Please feel free to check out the optional activities!
