Teacher Conference Meals Thank You!

Thornapple Families –

Thank you for helping save the day – the staff was well fed on conference days!

We can’t wait to do it again in the Spring

Thornapple Night at Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers

Recovering from that Thanksgiving meal?  Join us for our last dine out night of 2018 at Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers. Stop on by between 5-9pm on Wednesday, 11/28.  Grab your neighbors, friends and family.  15% of all sales will be donated back to Thornapple.

Wanted: Substitute Teachers!

Did you know that you do not need a teaching certificate to be a guest teacher in schools anymore?  If you have 90 or more semester credit hours from a four-year-accredited university you could guest teach in one of our Thornapple classrooms or in a classroom anywhere in West Michigan.  If you are interested or have questions you can contact Mr. Lyon for more information, if you’re ready to get started you can login to to to start the application process.  Guest teachers are scarce across the state so this is one more way you could support our school and students.
