Tharp will be hosting Curriculum Night on Tuesday, September 6. Parents only are invited to come and follow their child’s daily schedule, spending about 10 minutes in each of their child’s classes as teachers give a brief presentation. Teams are only assigned one time slot so you must come during the time frame designated for your team. When you enter the building, you will go directly to your child’s 1st period class, unless you arrive late in which you will follow the schedule below. Be sure to bring a copy of your child’s schedule which you can print from HOME ACCESS or have your child write down the class and room number they go to each period so you can follow their schedule. You will skip the lunch period and move on to the next class listed. Staff will be on hand to direct you throughout the building. Due to seating limitations, please leave your child at home.
6:00-7:10 = for Teams R, I and G only
7:45-8:55 = for Teams T, E and S only

We want to further engage students in exploring and creating in science and technology to cultivate a future generation of inventors and critical thinkers. We’ll do this through the use of Sphero robots – an interactive robotics system that integrates with existing curriculum. These robots bring science to life by better engaging students and responding to unique language created from computer code and responding to directions from students.
Hilliard Tharp Team E science students were fortunate enough to Skype with former Davidson grad and geologist Matt Rine who is working on his doctorate at Western Michigan. Students wrote their own personal question on the topic of geology and had the opportunity to share those with him. Thanks For your time and effort Matt!
