A Word From Your Principal

Work Hard.  Be Kind 

As we venture into second semester here at Throop Elementary School, students were assessed for growth using the winter IReady diagnostic.  Please take a moment to ask your child's teacher about growth from fall to winter and tips on what to do next.  ILearn is our new state assessment.  There are some big changes to what students will be expected to know and be able to do on the Indiana-created assessment.  Parent information can be accessed on the IDOE website.   Please feel free to contact your child's teacher or me at 812-723-3537 or email at crewsa@paoli.k12.in.us.  

In addition to academic growth, the staff at Throop Elementary School is committed to continuing our journey toward meeting the social and emotional needs of our students.  Child brain development research over decades has revealed to us that the most basic need of our young people is to feel safe.  We are committed to meeting that need here at Throop!
