Thompson School District has had a lot to celebrate these past few months. Not only did Riverview PK-8 School have a tremendous grand opening, but we also welcomed the public to a celebration of the new Ferguson High School and Thompson Career Campus. Both of these projects were funded by our 2018 Bond measure, and we are excited to see the buildings filled with students who are enjoying the new experiences that are possible.
The month of September marked the 100th birthday of Big Thompson Elementary School, which is located in west Loveland near the foothills of the Rockies. At the end of the month, students and staff held a celebration which included some specialized learning activities as well as a group photo to commemorate the occasion. We were also excited to host a public anniversary event recently, providing tours of the building and opportunities to learn more about the long history of this very unique building. Like every other school within our district, the community of students, families and staff at Big Thompson is special. The strength and talents within that community are a major reason the school has continued to thrive decade after decade. It has been a wonderful treat to be able to celebrate this special milestone with them.
While Big Thompson Elementary is one of the oldest buildings in the district, the brand new Sunrise Thompson Health Clinic is among the newest. The clinic is a partnership with the great team at Sunrise Community Health and is available to all students within TSD, along with their siblings. It’s a convenient and friendly place for families to access basic health services such as immunizations, sports physicals, wellness checks and behavioral health assistance. We know for a fact that proper healthcare is critical in allowing each child to learn and thrive. This partnership with Sunrise Community Health is a huge step in ensuring that students and families are able to access the healthcare services that they need. On October 11th, an Open House was hosted at the clinic, which featured a ribbon cutting ceremony and an opportunity for families to tour the facility and learn more.
