Head of School Weekly Email: Summer 2021 @ TA

Dear TA Families & Students,

We are planning a summer program at Thetford Academy for June-July 2021, designed to support and engage students in response to the extended period of COVID impact on the school experience. The program will include opportunities for students who need to make up academic credits as well as for those who are simply seeking a hands-on, outdoor experience this summer. The TA summer program will build on and take place in collaboration with the existing TOP summer leadership trips that have been offered over the past 4 summers.

We will have more details to share about the expanded TA summer program and a registration process in place by late April, so please stay tuned. In the meantime, we’d love your assistance. Please fill out this very brief survey to help us gauge interest and to provide useful input for our planning process: [see email for link].

In more current news … With the spring athletics seasons starting on Monday, we anticipate more students will want to participate in the afterschool Homework Club from 2-3pm. We also still have room in the morning session between 8-9am. Sign up is required, so please use the HW Club sign-up form to register. For more details about the spring athletics season, please contact Athletic Director Blendon Salls, [email protected].

Happy Easter & Passover to families who are celebrating holidays this weekend,

Carrie Brennan, Head of School
