Mrs. Thompson

Welcome to 2nd Grade!

I have lived in Campbell all my life. My husband and I both graduated from Campbell High School in 1990. We have two beautiful daughters.

A few quick notes:

  • I keep the room pretty cool, so your child may want to bring a light jacket or sweater to leave in their cubby.
  • If your child wears flip-flops to school, please have them put an extra pair of shoes in their backpack. We spend a lot of unnecessary time dealing with broken flip-flops.
  • We go to P.E. on Wednesdays and Thursdays so PLEASE make sure that your child wears tennis shoes on these days each week.

I am looking forward to a GREAT year with this bunch of students. If you ever have a question or need to contact me, you may do so by note, school phone 246-3109, or email (Please do not use email to communicate that your child will be going home a different way or any other issue that requires immediate attention. I may not have time to check it until after school.)
