Reminder Letter


July 26, 2016


Thurston High School’s 2016-2017 school year begins September 7th for 9th graders, and September 8th for grades 10, 11, and 12.  Before the first day, please plan on attending School Registration and Fall Sports Registration.

School Registration (all students) –  Tuesday, August 30, 2016

                                    Juniors and Seniors:                                      9:00 am – 11:30 am

                                    Freshmen and Sophomores:                       12:30 pm – 3:00 pm

School registration packets should arrive to your home by mail between August 22-26th.  This packet contains your student’s back to school information.  Please review, make corrections, and return any inaccurate information in your packet.  On school registration day (Aug. 30th), please return the Directory of Rights and Demographic Sheet to the school.

Fall Sports Registration –   Tuesday, August 2, 2016                  4:00 -7:00 pm

 In order for your student-athlete to participate on the first day of practice for Fall sports, (Football, Volleyball, Soccer, Cross Country, Cabaret, and Cheer) they must register to participate.

Fall Sports Registration Night will be in the THS main courtyard.   Please attend this night; your student’s participation clearance will be much faster.   Forms and payment will not be accepted before this date.

Please note: all sports participants must have had a documented physical within the last two years.  For student-athletes new to THS, transfers and/or in-coming Freshmen, you MUST bring 1.) a hard copy of a current physical (good for two years- should be available through your physician), and 2.) the most current copy of school grades (6/16). Fall practices begin on Monday, August 15, 2016.

Sports registration fees are as follows:

Participation Fee:                                               $150

Student Body Card:                                            $30

Please Note:  Any outstanding student fee and/or fines must be paid before athletes will be cleared to participate.

The OSAA requires all student athletes to be a student body member, so we ask all Fall sports participants to pay for their Student Body Cards at Fall sports registration.

Students must have passed a minimum of five (5) classes the previous grading period (including incoming 9th graders) with a 2.0 GPA.  If a student does not meet these requirements they will need to see the Athletic Director, Justin Starck for eligibility requirements.

 We look forward to seeing your student at school this September!  Go Colts!
