Founders’ Day 2024 – Photo Gallery

On Friday, February 2, the Thetford Academy school community celebrated the school’s 205th birthday with our annual Founders’ Day event. Photos include the grade level committees busily working during their prep time on Wednesday and Thursday, as well as event activities on Friday.

This year’s Founders’ Day theme was board games. You’ll see plenty of evidence of the committees’ creativity as they depict TA’s campus, history, people, and school values reflected in the board game of their grade.
