 Jim Thorpe Update

News &  Announcements

Jim Thorpe is a happy place to be and we are continuing to support our students with their goals and are here to partner with our families. Every month, each teacher is recognizing a student who has really modeled how to be a great Olympian both inside and outside of their classroom. They will be selected as our “MVPs” for the month and have a pizza party with Ms. Allen, Mr. Walker, and Ms. Davis! Every semester, each teacher, including specialists, will select 1 student from every class to be recognized as an “Outstanding Olympian.” We will have a special ceremony for those students and their families!
