Mrs. Mendelssohn’s Crane Project

Posted by Thurston Elementary Office under Community Events, Fundraising

Mrs. Mendelssohn’s class is going strong with their annual Crane Project, based on the book Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. Cranes the students have created are on sale before and after school for $1 each. Proceeds will go to Flint Community Schools, to help provide clean water to students in the Flint community. Thank you for helping to teach all our students the value of community service, whether they are in Mrs. Mendelssohn’s class or supporting the sale by purchasing a crane.

Curriculum Night Sept. 24th

Posted by Thurston Elementary Office under Library

Parents – a reminder that we have our Curriculum Night Thursday, Sept. 24th, from 6-7 pm.  This is a chance for you to hear what your child’s teacher will be focusing on this year, and the best ways for you to support your child’s education.  Because this is an informational night, children are discouraged from coming (it won’t be very fun for them!)

We hope to see you there!
