Parents and Families

Thetford Academy welcomes parents and families as an integral part of our school community. All parents and guardians are invited to join the Thetford Academy Parents Association, a volunteer network that provides invaluable support to student groups and TA events every year.

TAPA is an open organization, so all parents, guardians, and community members are encouraged to participate in TAPA activities such as support for school events, teacher appreciation, Parent Cafes, and informative programs. If you’d like more information about joining TAPA or want to volunteer for a specific event or activity, please contact tapa@thet.net.
