New Student Welcome and Back to School Picnic

Thetford Academy is looking forward to hosting students and families for two community events on August 27: a new student welcome and TA’s annual back to school picnic.

Beginning at 4:00 p.m., TA invites all new, incoming students to campus for a fun opportunity to get comfortable before the first day of school. New students will learn to navigate TA’s campus and classrooms, walk their schedule, meet classmates and teachers, and get first-day-of-school questions answered.

At 5:00 p.m., we’ll kick off new school year with TA’s annual back to school picnic. We invite all students – new and returning – and their families to join us at this potluck event. Catch up with teachers, classmates, and community members while enjoying delicious food and the beautiful views from TA’s campus.

Look for more information about the potluck in your fall registration packet (arriving in mailboxes soon!). We’re excited to celebrate the launch of 2023-2024 with you!
