Principal's Message


Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! The staff at Thurmont Primary School is committed to “work, learn and care together so that we grow in our brain, heart and body power.” We strongly encourage you to “work, learn and care” with us as you serve in a most critical capacity of being your child’s most important and loved teacher. 

Because we insist upon a collaborative school community and because parents are valued for the role they play, communication between home and school is vital. To that end, please know that all members of the Thurmont Primary School staff are here to share our students’ progress as well as information about our school program. Visitations are welcomed and encouraged in addition to the variety of strategies used to connect home and school. Please be watching for our daily folders, our administrative bulletins, classroom newsletters,  the FCPS Calendar Handbook, our TPS Parent Handbook, and updates at our website. 

Again, it is important that our learning community has a shared understanding in order to communicate openly and to assist families in our vision so that “children will leave Thurmont Primary School being successful learners and empowered to show strong character.” Join our PTA, volunteer your time and energy, participate in family events and always seek clarification to enhance collaboration and understanding. And thank you in advance for your cooperation, support and involvement with us as we “work, learn and care together so that we grow in our brain, heart and body power.”
