- Our School
- Our Program
As part of school activities, parents help on field trips, are judges are the Science Fair and share their skills with classrooms. They also volunteer in the library, greet children in the morning at drop-off, and serve on school committees. Outside of school, parents coordinate hikes in the Blue Hills, playdates at Houghton Pond and create celebration events like the Holidays Around the World brunch. Our parents host annual classroom pot luck dinners and sponsor a teacher appreciation luncheon. We welcome parent participation and consider Thacher families to be an integral part of life at our school.
Another great way to get involved in strengthening the Thacher community is by helping the Thacher Parent Council (TPC) to organize community-building activities for our families. For information about how you can help with the TPC, please contact parents Vanessa Holroyd or Carolyn Clark (firstname.lastname@example.org).
A defining feature of Thacher’s community is diversity. Our families come from 44 cities and towns in the Metro Boston Area and the South Shore. Not only are we from many areas around Boston but we celebrate diversity from around the world as well. Our children come from families speaking 20 different languages. Thacher parents play an essential role in life at school, and their community building events enhance life and friendships outside of school.
Please adhere to the following guidelines when coming to Thacher for drop-off and dismissal:
We are committed to providing a physically and emotionally safe environment, free from all forms of bullying, for all students, staff and other constituents.
