My name is Bill Juhasz and I am the Principal of Thompson Elementary School. On behalf of our dynamic staff, I welcome you to our school's web site, where I hope you will find helpful information.
September 2018 will mark my second year as the Principal here at Thompson (and 23rd year in the Distrcit as a school administrator) and I am very excited about what we have planned for the coming year.
Thompson School is a Kindergarten through Grade Seven Elementary School with a current enrollment of about 230 students, and growing. We had 10 Divisons(classes) in 2017/18 and are growing. We boast an incredible staff of professionals, paraprofessionals and support staff who are dedicated to creating a rich, exciting, and extensive educational experience for every child who comes through our doors.
Thompson is a fully integrated school with a strong collaborative team that provides rich curricular and extra-curricuar opportunities. One of our strengths, and sources of pride is our team's abiity support children with special needs. Our band program (grade 5-7) is strong, and our students keep fit through daily phyiscal Education. Our Student Council is very active. They plan special 'spirit days', are involved in local and global environmental pursuits, raise funds for our programs, designs their own initiatives determined by the students themselves. We have our annual Cross Country Running programs, Volleyball Teams, Basketball Teams, Track and Field and Sports Day. There is a lot happening at Thompson and we are gratetful that so many staff and parents volunteer their time to enhance the student experience at the school.
The strong partnership between the school staff and parents is also a strength at Thompson, and one we all appreciate. Parents are a huge part of what makes Thompson a fantastic community school.
