Important Messages -
During the week of 12/5-12/9 we are asking staff, students, and the community to donate $1.00. All donations collected will be donated to the Wreaths Across America Organization on behalf of the Middletown Township School District.
Thorne Middle School has the honor of the Wreaths Across America Convoy visiting on December 14th. In keeping with its mission to Remember our fallen U.S. Veterans, Honor those who serve, and Teach our children the value of freedom, Wreaths Across America will be making its annual trek from Maine to Arlington National Cemetery. Approximately 70,000 wreaths will be in tow when the convoy makes a stop at Thorne Middle School, one of only four stops in the state of New Jersey, to honor our community’s military veterans, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service. The school, named for Medal of Honor recipient Corporal Horace “Bud” Thorne, will host the convoy for the third time, having previously received the honor in 2013 and 2019.
Wreaths Across America relies on donations. We would like to make a donation on behalf of the entire Middletown Township School District. Jars will be available in the main office of our school for staff, students, and community members to make donations. Larger donations can be sent to Thorne Middle School’s main office with checks made out to Wreaths Across America. We will be collecting donations from Monday, December 5th through Friday, December 9th. Please see the attachment for more information about Wreaths Across America.
