Principal's Message

 Welcome Back Team Thorp Tiger Parents!!!!
It is with great excitement that we, Dr. Caridine and Mrs. Kortz, welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year.
It has been 9 years since we began our journey as J.N. Thorp’s School Leaders. During the previous 8 years, we have experienced so many great successes. This school year, we have set the ‘learning bar’ high; which means we, Thorp Staff and Parents, have lots of work to do to make sure our Thorp Tiger Cubs experience academic and social-emotional success.
We will continue with our motto of “ROARing Our Way to Success”. In order for Thorp Tigers to ROAR they must be Respectful, Optimistic, Achieving, and Responsible.  This school year, we added a theme to our Motto. The theme for this school year is “Commit, Connect, and Care!!”.
