August 11– Homeroom and Team Assignments will be available through Home Access Center after 3:00 pm. Parents are able to log in to Home Access Center so their child can learn his/her homeroom number, teacher and team assignment. This is very important because team placement determines which Orientation Night session you attend. If you have any problems accessing this information, feel free to call the main office for assistance at 614-921-6900.
August 14– Orientation Night – There will be two identical Orientation programs given on this night.
- 6:00-7:00 pm for parents of students who are placed on Teams G, I and S. – see Home Access *** Students do not need to attend
- 7:45-8:45 pm for parents of students who are placed on Teams T, R, and E. – see Home Access *** Students do not need to attend
The Orientation Program will aid in your adjustment and understanding of Hilliard Tharp Sixth Grade School and the educational opportunities we provide. The agenda for that evening will include a discussion of our sixth grade programs, a curriculum overview, building policies and procedures, and a brief tour of the facilities. It is important that you attend the session that has been assigned to you based on your child’s team. Teachers will not be in attendance this evening.
August 15 – PAW Day – You can come any time between the hours of 9:00am-2:00pm and 4:00-6:00 pm.
August 16 – PAW Day – You can come any time between the hours of 7:30am-2:00pm.
During PAW Days, students and parents should visit Tharp to access Home Access if you are not able to do so from home, take their school picture, tour their classrooms, pay school fees and receive their locker in advance. In order to receive your child’s locker number, combination and schedule in advance, you must update your child’s Emergency Medical Form through Home Access (see Below) and pay student fees. Once all of the above activities are complete, you will receive a sign off sheet indicating everything has been turned in and paid. You will give this sheet to your homeroom teacher to receive your child’s locker number, combination and course schedule.
