J. Q. Thomas Elementary School has earned membership to the No Excuses University Network of Schools. To earn membership into this prestigious network of “like-minded” schools, J.Q. Thomas Elementary needed to complete an extensive online application focused on the “Six Exceptional Systems” the school has developed based on the No Excuses University model. The school also was required to submit a video to the No Excuses University Application Committee to demonstrate the “Culture of Universal Achievement” they have developed on their campus. J.Q. Thomas Elementary earned the recognition by demonstrating a commitment to college readiness and through efforts to ensure all children meet standards in reading, writing and math, no matter their challenges. J.Q. Thomas Elementary now is part of a growing No Excuses Network of Schools across the country.
Every Friday we give students an opportunity to "spend" their Tiger Paws at our ROARS Store. If you are looking for a really fun volunteer opportunity that doesn't take much time this might be just the thing! We need individuals who are willing to work from 1045-12:15 on Fridays helping to run the store. If you'd like to volunteer please call the office at 773-4110 and let Mrs. Chavez know.
