  • Socktober!

    TES Sock Drive


    Thurston Elementary students are participating in Socktober!  During the month of October, we will be collecting new (and very gently used) socks that will be donated to the homeless.  The goal of this outreach is to help our students understand the importance of giving back to the community, and helping those who are in need.  Your child can bring the socks to school and deposit them in the collection barrel near the office.  Thank you in advance for helping your child look beyond his/her own comfort, to the needs of others!

    Addendum - We collected $1469.68 during the month of November!  Thank you, TES families!
