#ThoreauStrong

Show Your Thoreau Spirit!

Follow the link HERE to print your own Thoreau Frog!

You and your student can color your frog and put it in your front window. When our fellow frogs go out walking or bike riding (while social distancing, of course) they can see where our Frogs live, you can even make it a game to see how many you can find! Snap a pic with your Thoreau Frog and send into the yearbook ThoreauPTAYearbook@gmail.com 

If you don’t have the ability to print, reach out to ThoreauPTAVolunteer@gmail.com  for a frog to be delivered to your doorstep.

Thoreau Painted Rock Garden

END OF THE YEAR Collective Art Project 

Learn all about it HERE

Let’s get crafty and leave a beautiful mark of the strength and unity this school year had brought to us all. We would like to invite the Thoreau Family (staff, teachers and students and their families) to create a Collective Painted Rock Garden as a legacy of this uniquely challenging year.

Each child/family participant is invited to put their artistic skills to action and paint at least one rock (or as many as you like) to be displayed in an outdoor area of the school.

The PTA will supply paint and/or brushes to anyone who needs it, please reach out to ThoreauPTAVolunteer@gmail.com to request.

Theme: There is not a specific theme but, if possible, each grade can use the suggested colors below as a guideline for their predominant colors. If the below colors don’t work for you, use whatever you desire or have available.

Suggested predominant colors:
