Parent Teacher Partnership

The Thornton Donovan Parent-Teacher Partnership is a group of parents who wish to take part in the development of school activities and fundraisers. The group hosts many school activities and traditional celebrations each year. Our goal is to promote a sense of community and friendship between TD parents and to support the teachers.

Annual PTP activities include indoor rock climbing events, organized community service, parent socials, art exhibits, and an International pot luck dinner.

Some of our annual events include:

Muffins with Mom/Donuts with Dad – Each September, moms and dads reconnect after the summer holiday to break bread with their children and each other at the “Muffins with Mom” and “Donuts with Dad” breakfast events.

International Heritage Dinner– In early December or late November, the Thornton-Donovan family comes together to celebrate our spirit of diversity with International Night. Pot-luck style, each T-D family brings a dish representing their heritage or country of origin. At Thornton-Donovan, this is quite a smorgasbord!

Spring Gala – The annual Spring Gala is a wonderful celebration that includes food, drinks, dancing, and both live and silent auctions. Tickets to the event are covered by the yearly tuition. The gala is a great opportunity for parents and teachers to socialize, and it also serves as an early introduction to the next year’s theme. Past galas have included performances by South African drummers, Irish step dancers, and Argentinian tango dancers.

Check the calendar of events to volunteer! We meet every month. Please come to the meeting!

All funds raised by the Parent-Teacher Partnership are used to cover capital improvements, local school trips, and facility maintenance.
