TA Celebrates 199th Birthday

75th Annual Founders’ Day!

On Friday, Feb. 2, Thetford Academy will celebrate its 199th birthday and students will participate in the 75th annual Founders’ Day celebration!

This year’s theme is animated movies; each class has chosen an animated movie that their class will represent on Founders’ Day.  Students will use their individual talents and creativity to prepare skits, build a float, decorate cakes, make costumes, and design banners that will incorporate the specific movie as well as earn points for their class. Classes also earn points by competing in various events around campus, including volleyball, tug of war, a balloon toss, donut eating contest, and so much more! In the end, we will see which classes are victorious.

Upper Division:

  • Seniors: Shrek
  • Juniors: Toy Story

Middle Division:

  • Sophomores: Ice Age
  • Freshmen: Moana

Lower Division:

  • 8th Grade: Finding Nemo
  • 7th Grade: Wall-E
