Thurgood Marshall Elementary

Education at Thurgood Marshall is about collaboration. We know that every kindergarten through fifth grader who walks through our doors has a different set of needs and abilities, but we also believe in the potential of all children to become self-directed lifelong learners. As such, we strive to create an environment where we encourage our students to take risks and become creative producers. To do this, we work closely with parents, teachers, students, and community members, encouraging one another to look at challenges as opportunities in disguise and to take the time to celebrate achievement—both individually and collectively.

A Message from Our Principal

Dear Thurgood Marshall Families,

We are incredibly excited to begin the 2018-2019 school year at Thurgood Marshall Elementary School! This promises to be a year filled with golden opportunities for all of our students as we continue to build upon what we have accomplished and strive to find ways that we can become better. We embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful, and rigorous work in our classrooms coupled with special events and extracurricular clubs and activities, performing arts groups, and athletics teams certain to encourage our Dolphins to be involved and stay connected.

During the 2018-2019 school year we will continue to build upon and refine our proven foundation of great work and continued excellence in education. Our vision remains… 

“One Team, One Vision…Preparing, Empowering, Motivating Children to Thrive Globally.”

We look forward to a very positive and productive year together! We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible. We want and value your involvement and support in your child’s education. Your active participation is key to the success of your young Dolphin during his/her elementary school years.

Again, I welcome you to Thurgood Marshall Elementary School and to our wonderful learning community. Our school is a place alive with much energy, enthusiasm, and a high standard of excellence. It is, indeed, a place where opportunities abound. Here’s to an awesome new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day!

With Dolphin pride!
