It is my pleasure to welcome you to Thomas Elementary. Our dedicated staff works very hard to meet the individual needs of all students and maintain personal connections with their families. We invite you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering, joining our PTA, or attending and supporting school events. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child.
We truly believe that communication is the key to a successful educational experience. Together, we will continue to improve the quality of our school community and provide the best for the children of Thomas Elementary. Education is a partnership between the school, students, parents/guardians, and community. All children are more successful when we work as a team to achieve educational goals. Nothing motivates a child more than when learning is valued by schools, families, and community in partnership. As I am in my fifth year as principal of Thomas Elementary, 19th year in administration, and 25th year over all, I continue to be thrilled at opportunities to engage with the community in the education process together. The elementary years are critical times of development for students and families alike, and I look forward to working with all of you.
Zack Pruett, Principal
