Thank you Barbara Lee

Stella Moore

A letter from Congresswoman Barbara Lee congratulating Thornhill School on its anniversary was read by Thornhill mom, Stella Moore.

Bagpipes lead the way

The ceremony began when Thornhill dad, Rory MacArthur, led a procession of the student council (Dean Swennumson, Matthew Won, Olivia Fishlow, Hannah Fishlow, Logan Sopchak and Caitlen Moser) into the packed multipurpose room bellowing music from the bagpipes. Breath-taking!

Followed by our Sally Foster chair and amazing singer, Carolyn Gregory, who led the crowd in the Star Spangled Banner and was accompanied on piano by Kay Carter, 2nd grade teacher and parent of former Thornhill students.

Classical music performed by Ms Shauna Revelli - 3rd Grade teacher, Mimi Shalf, Gabriel Gartland and Blanca Seiter played in the background while guests arrived for the event.
