Thomas Hooker School and the Mrs. Smuckler's Garden Club would like to thank all students, families, teachers and community members who volunteered to help with Spring Beautification Day! The school looks terrific thanks to everyone's hard work!



Please review the attached "Family Preparedness Plan" (Plan de Preparacion Familiar) to learn more about how to prepare for interactions with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.). Please also review this letter from the governor providing guidance to school districts dealing with I.C.E.






 Thomas Hooker students have been exploring Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) inside and outside of the classroom this fall! Pictured below are scholars learning to love STEM subjects during a 2nd grade trip to the Audubon Society, a Kindergarten trip to a farm, Fall Family Math Stations, and with guests teaching our 4th graders about electrical currents and backpack safety!
