Mountain Top Toys – Good Deal

Just like last year, Mountain Top Toys is having a "Secret Sale" Monday-Thursday for any non-profits in the area. You get 10% off all regular priced items, and 10% of your sale is donated to Thrasher. Important – When at the register, tell the good folks there you are shopping to support Thrasher.


Melanie Underwood resigned the art position. The reason she gave is to take care of her family’s current needs. We have a couple of leads on art teachers and a couple of back-up plans. We’ll update you as we have information.

Early Dismissals

We’ve noticed a pattern lately: more children than usual are being dismissed early and often. We’re not sure if this is due to the new bell times at Thrasher. As much as possible, please let us have your children during the entire school day. Our teachers don’t waste a moment, and there is so much to learn!

Reflections Art Contest

Reflections entries are due Tuesday, Nov. 12th. Parent volunteers will be out front Tuesday morning to collect entries from walkers and buses and another parent will be out back for the car riders. You must include the entry forms! Those can be printed from the website or picked up in the Thrasher lobby.

Rising 6th Grade Parent Meeting @ SMMHS

From Dr. Harwood @ SHMMHS: On behalf of our MS Counselor and 6th Grade Team Leader, Sara Jane Flowers and Jennifer McGann-Womack, I wanted to share the attached information regarding our upcoming Rising 6th Grade Parent Meet and Greet.  This event will take place on Monday, November 11 beginning at 5:30 in the SMMHS Dining Hall.  This evening will be geared toward parents with coffee and desert provided along with opportunities to learn more about what to expect in 6th grade, meet our amazing teachers and staff, and tour parts of our school.

During our November parent event, we will also be sharing details and dates for other rising 6th grade events that will take place throughout the year including our annual elementary school counselor and electives visits and the spring 5th grade orientation visit to SMMHS. 

All the best,
