School Safety Reminder

Children are very fast and often unpredictable when exiting the car and crossing streets. You can help us keep them safe by staying focused on your surroundings, putting down your cell phone, and maintaining a safe speed through our parking lots.


We appreciate your patience and safety mindset when entering our school zone and parking lots. There is nothing that matters more than the safety and well-being of your children. I think we can all agree that taking our time to ensure a safe environment for our children will always be worth any inconvenience.


2019 - 2020 Yearbook - Fewer than 75 copies left for pre-order!!

WE ARE QUICKLY RUNNING OUT OF YEARBOOKS! For the first time ever we will be selling a schoolwide yearbook for Thornton Elementary! The cost of each yearbook will be $20 and will be full color with a hardcover. Place your order now at


Six Flags Tickets

Our front office staff will be selling 1-day tickets to Six Flags for $41.00. These tickets are upgradable to a season ticket by upgrading at Six Flags.
