Parent Teacher Partnership


The Parent-Teacher Partnership (PTP) invites all Thornton-Donovan parents to be a part of our warm community, and provides an opportunity to be a part of the growth and development of the school.

Of all the private schools Westchester has to offer, Thornton-Donovan offers one of the most family-like and spirited communities both on and off campus.

Once per quarter, the much anticipated Arts House Cafe night provides an opportunity for Thornton-Donovan students to showcase a cornucopia of talents. An evening might include everything from hearing Chopin on the piano to Rap on the mic, a fashion show of originally designed dresses to Hip Hop dancing.

Each September, moms and dads reconnect after the summer holiday to break bread with their children and each other at the "Muffins with Mom" and "Donuts with Dad" breakfast events.


In early December, the Thornton-Donovan family comes together to celebrate our spirit of diversity with International Night. Pot-luck style, each T-D family brings a dish representing their heritage or country or origin. You might imagine, at Thornton-Donovan, this is quite a smorgasbord!

The Holiday Luncheon brings our community together in the regal setting of a local yacht club to celebrate our diverse winter holiday traditions.

Warmer weather brings the annual Spring Gala: a magical evening of dinner, dancing, and a lively auction overlooking Long Island Sound.
