Coupon Book Sales

The State of TN is taking school attendance a little more seriously this year. In the past, Thrasher has attained a status of excellence through math and literacy scores. Starting this year, schools will also be held accountable for attendance as well. Schools and districts must have less than 5% of students qualifying as “chronically absent”. Chronically absent means a student has missed 10% of the school year. Last year, 3% of Thrasher’s students qualified as chronically absent. Part of the law also means that schools must send home a notice each time a student misses five days.

Bus Passes

We have a new transportation director, and one of the changes implemented are new requirements for bus passes. This means, if your child is getting off on a different stop than usual, the bus driver must have a written note from you that includes:

  • The actual address of where the child will be going
  • Your phone number and name

5th Grade Promotion

Plan ahead! 5th Grade Promotion will be at 6PM on May 22nd, and it will be at Thrasher.
