The Thoreau Ribbit Run gives students the opportunity to embrace their school spirit as well as showcase their ability to achieve greatness through exercise and teamwork!  This year’s Ribbit Run is on September 28, 2018. Students will have the chance to run, walk, hop, skip or roll together, promoting heart-healthy activities while reinforcing a positive atmosphere.

Our all-school goal breaks down to $100 per student. Please donate what you can to help reach our goal - every bit helps! The proceeds will assist in enhancing the learning experience of every student at H.D. Thoreau Elementary School.

Hey Thoreau Parents,

REGISTRATION OPENS Monday, September 10th and continues through Thursday, September 20th.

If you haven't already, you will be receiving a flyer in kid mail reflecting all the options this fall. Our enrichment chair has been hard at work coordinating some more fun and educational activities! From tennis, to Spanish, to yoga, plus others, these are always a big hit with kids and parents alike.
