  • H.E.A.R.T. Skills are the character traits we emphasize at Thurston Elementary.  H.E.A.R.T stands for:


    Honor – Doing the right thing, even when no one is looking

    Empathy – Knowing and caring how others feel

    Accountability – Being responsible for your actions

    Respect – Treating others the way you want to be treated

    Teamwork – Working well as a group


    Our staff are always on the lookout for students showing H.E.A.R.T. behavior, with various rewards including H.E.A.R.T. tickets and weekly ice cream drawings.  Approximately every other month we reward specific behavior at a H.E.A.R.T. assembly. We also do weekly H.E.A.R.T. attack lessons to reinforce the H.E.A.R.T. traits.

    We invite you to explore our new website, which we anticipate keeping stocked with useful news and information for our families. 

    • Also, if you haven't given us your email address yet, be sure to do so to make sure you receive flyers and other important info. You may also access the current flyers directly from our school's Peachjar account.
    • New families, please note our attendance policy.
    • Be sure to finish up with those important immunizations, and if you haven't yet supplied your proof of address materials, please do so by October 1. 
    • As always, if you have any questions please call our front office (541) 744-6411.

    We look forward to seeing you soon!
