This year we will again be using School Messenger to CALL all parents and guardians in our District to notify them of weather delays or cancelations. It’s imperative that your phone number is correct in Home Access. The calls will go to PRIMARY numbers only, so be sure you have the number you want weather calls to go to listed as your primary number.
In order to test this system, we will do a test call this Friday, October 20 at 4pm. This test call will go to all parents and staff. It will also go to community members who are signed up on School Messenger.
We will also still send an email, post on Twitter and Facebook, post on our building web pages and notify local media when we have weather delays or cancelations.
After our Darby Creek field investigation, Team S students created infographics to inform community members of the importance of helping to keep the Darby Creek ecosystem pollution-free. They did a wonderful job making informative, attention-getting infographics.

Volunteer: If you are available to help and have a current volunteer badge, please consider giving an hour or two of your time. Sign up HERE.
Shop Online: Shop an even wider selection of books online October 11th-24th. All online orders will be sent to Tharp and delivered to students. Orders are tax exempt and the school still benefits from the sale! Shop HERE!
Dates and Times: The fair will be open during the school day Monday-Thursday and will stay open late on Wednesday the 18th during parent teacher conferences. Students will have time to browse on Monday and Tuesday during their language arts class and are welcome to come back and buy any time.
Eat Breakfast, Win a Book!: It is so important for kids to start their day off with breakfast. Each day the week of our book fair, any student who joins us for school breakfast in the morning will be entered into a drawing for a free book from the book fair. Two students will win each morning!
