Elementary School

Welcome to Thackerville Elementary!

    At Thackerville Elementary, we focus on students grades Pre-K through 5th. All of our classroom teachers are trained in the Great Expectations teaching model. Thackerville Elementary will began full implementation of the Great Expectations teaching model in the 2018-19 school year. We are very excited to see the success our students and school have and will continue to gain through the use of this model. We would like to thank the Sarkeys Foundation for allowing our school this wonderful opportunity.

  Thackerville Elementary was the recipient of the Oklahoma Education Technology Trust grant in 2019. This grant is for $40,000 in technology and $25,000 for professional development. This grant allowed Thackerville Elementary to implement every student in Pre-K through 1st grade having access their own iPad for classroom use and students in 2nd through 5th grade to have access to their own chromebook for classroom use. Teachers are working diligently to implement student devices in innovative and authentic ways. We are very excited to become a 1:1 school!

    Our mission at Thackerville Elementary is to enable students to be fluent, effective communicators, and life-long learners who are successful in their lives. Success is defined as doing what you enjoy and doing it well. We have a great team of teachers that are always developing innovative ways to reach the students of today’s world.
