November 12th 2008 - making history!

Smiling, happy faces as they watch a video of Thornhill through the years.

The Rededication Ceremony, which took place last Wednesday, was held before a standing room only crowd. Students, teachers and parents from the last 50 years were present for the ceremony which included a welcome from 5th grade teacher and past Thornhill student, Rob Wilkins, and principal, Sallyann Tomlin. Dr. Gary Yee, from the Oakland Board of Education and the Honorable Dick Spees, former Oakland City Councilman, both praised Thornhill School for its success in education and for the efforts by teachers, staff and parents in making Thornhill a shining star in the Oakland Unified School District and the whole state of California. What a night filled with joy, happiness and tears as old friends and teachers gathered together all with a common interest - Thornhill Elementary School.
