The mission of the Gretna Public Schools is to, "accept all students unconditionally and maximize their potential," and in order to accomplish this mission statement we will focus on each individual student and his or her own needs.  Thomas Elementary has a rich tradition of high achievement and high expectations and we will continue to create a positive culture by utilizing a transparent sense of communication and implementing proactive strategies for student success.
Not only will our students grow academically, but our job is to help them grow as young people.  The characteristics of respect, responsibility, and safety are key pieces to what we do on a daily basis and we will have high expectations for our students when it comes to these core values.  When the students at Thomas walk out our doors, we want them to be well-rounded in all areas of life and be productive citizens in our community.  We will celebrate their successes, help them through challenges, and allow them to make real-life connections to the world that they are part of.
