American Revolution Play At Thornton Junior High

Audie is restless, after the Volleyball team was over, she auditioned to be in the school’s American Revolution in 40 minutes or less play, stayed late and rehearsed with the crew, tiring but she enjoyed it. Finally, we got to see it yesterday. The play was quite comedic and enjoyable, not as boring as I thought it would be, the cast was very talented and worked well with each others….

Thornton Junior High Lunch Portions Are NOT Big Enough For My Child

My skinny daughter complained that she didn’t have enough food to eat at lunch from school – She had to buy 2 x $4.00 = $8.00 to stop being hungry. This is amazing, middle school where kids are growing fast, the cost now is $4.00 while all fast food restaurants are selling lunch menu for less than $4.

Thornton’s Volleyball Team Lost To Centerville Junior High At Their Home Court

This may be the last game of the season. After watching most of these games, I was wondering if the Thornton team…

Thornton vs Hopkins Junior High Volleyball Meet At Home Court

At home court yesterday, Thornton lost to Hopkins 2-0, it wasn’t a good meet. Everyone thought losing to Hopkins in their home court was due to strange environment, but watching Thornton played, I can see it’s the team skills and chemistry. Hopkins played a real Volleyball game, they tried 3 bumps for every ball to go over the net while Thornton only tried one or 2 bumps due to missing setting skills…
