Science Fair 2021 - It's a Website!

This year Upper Elementary and Adolescent students worked hard on experiments and engineering design challenges. Each student submitted a lab report outlining their work, following the scientific method or engineering design process.

Watch our student's videos, read their lab reports, and peruse their images on the all-new Science Fair 2021 Website.

Diversity Corner
Book Drive

Thacher's Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee is launching a book drive to enhance our library. Parents may purchase a book from this Amazon Wishlist. Many of these books are from your Parent Suggestions List. Thank you for contributing your ideas. The book drive will run throughout Parent/Guide conferences, from March 19 - April 2.

Don’t want to use Amazon? No problem. Feel free to send in any “new” or “very good" diversity book of your choice with your child. One great Amazon alternative is the Black-owned Frugal Bookstore in Roxbury

Please include a note with your book so we know to pass it along to our librarian Kim. Let us know if you’d like to donate the book in honor of someone - such as your child.

Please reach out to CHD parent Zakiyyah Murray or staff members Nikki and Asha if you have any questions. Thank you for your support.
