As we teach math, science, reading, writing and more, we seek to build students who are reflective thinkers, problem solvers, and risk takers.

Welcome to Thomson

 Elementary School

Dear Thomson Tiger Families,

Welcome to Thomson Elementary School for the 2021-2022 school year. It is hard to believe that it has been almost 18 months since we have all walked the halls of our school together. While we have all needed to make adjustments in our everyday lives, know that we have been working very hard to prepare for the safe arrival of every student and staff member. 

We are ready to meet every student where they are knowing that the needs of the whole child is paramount. Our mission and vision will continue to drive our work as we develop internationally-minded learners who take charge of their learning, are invested in their own success, and find meaningful ways to take action in their community. We know that with your help and cooperation, this will be an attainable goal. Whether you are new or returning to Thomson, we thank you for entrusting us with your child’s education this year and we can’t wait to see them shine brightly this year! 

-- Principal Carmen Shepherd
