Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! We are very excited to be preparing for another successful year at Jim Thorpe Fundamental.

We invite you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering, joining our PTA, or attending and supporting school events. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child. 

We truly believe that communication is the key to a successful educational experience. Together, we will continue to improve the quality of our school community and provide the best for the scholars of Jim Thorpe Fundamental School. Education is a partnership between the school, students, parents/guardians, and community.   All children are more successful when we work as a team to achieve educational goals.

Assistant Principal Karen and I have an open door policy, and we welcome your questions, concerns, and input at any time
