Homeroom and Team Assignment

August 8 – Homeroom and Team Assignments will available through Home Access Center after 3:00 pm. Parents are able to log in to Home Access Center so their child can learn his/her homeroom number, teacher and team assignment. This is very important because team placement determines which Orientation Night session you attend. View directions for how to set up Home Access and/or log in.

Orientation Night

August 12 –  There will be two identical Orientation programs given on this night.
6:00-7:00 pm for parents and students who are placed on Teams G, I and S. – see Home Access
7:45-8:45 pm for parents and students who are placed on Teams T, R, and E. – see Home Access

The Orientation Program will aid in your adjustment and understanding of Hilliard Tharp Sixth Grade School and the educational opportunities we provide. The agenda for that evening will include a discussion of our sixth grade programs, a curriculum overview, building policies and procedures, an introduction of your child’s teachers, and a tour of the facilities. It is important that you attend the session that has been assigned to you based on your child’s team.


Paw Days

August 13 -  You can come any time between the hours of 9:00am-2:00pm and 4:00-6:00 pm.
August 14- You can come any time between the hours of 7:30am-2:00pm.

During PAW Days, students and parents can visit Tharp to access Home Access if you are not able to do so from home, take their school picture, purchase their required school planner, tour their classrooms, pay school fees and receive their locker in advance. In order to receive your child’s locker number, combination and schedule in advance, you must update your child’s Emergency Medical Form through Home Access (directions) and pay student fees. Once all of the above activities are complete, you will receive a sign off sheet indicating everything has been turned in and paid. You will give this sheet to your homeroom teacher to receive your child’s locker number, combination and course schedule. It is very important that we have all of the online forms submitted as we begin the new school year so please remember to log in to Home Access. If your child has current health updates that we need to be made aware of, please print and complete the Current Health Update Form  and turn it in during PAW Days as well.


Update Student Information

Parent Home Access – Prior to PAW Days, we are asking all parents to review and update all student information through Home Access as it will serve as the primary means for parents to ensure their emergency contact information is up-to-date. This is in lieu of completing an emergency medical form for your child each year so it is critical that you review and update this information. To complete this task, parents should log on to Home Access and click the “update student information” link. As part of updating student information, parents will also need to review the network acceptable use policy with their child and check off that you and your child agree to the terms. Students are not able to access a computer at school until this has been completed. If you need assistance in completing this task, there will be computers and staff available during PAW Days to help you.


Hilliard Tharp eNews Bulletin – This is one of the primary ways we will communicate with you. If you have an email address, we are asking all Tharp families to subscribe to the Hilliard Tharp eNews Bulletin. Once you have registered for Tharp eNews, you will be sent a confirmation email that you must open and confirm in order to begin receiving the eblasts.Subscribe Now

Hilliard Schools’ Flyers Move Online

Posted on Mar 3, 2014

We’ve all experienced the frustration of sifting  through all the papers in the backpack searching for the one thing that may be  of interest to our family.  In many cases we simply dump the entire stack,  sometimes missing the important note from the teacher or the great opportunity  from the PTO.  At Hilliard City Schools we want to be responsive to parent  requests and create a better experience for all families while also being more environmentally friendly and cost effective in our operations.

Starting March 1st all PTO, Booster and community group fliers will be available online in the Hilliard Schools’ Flyer Connection . This means no more printing expenses for school groups and better communication with parents!  All fliers will be available in one location and parents can search by school or school grade level to find out about all the great things going on.  View Tharp’s Flyers
