Welcome to Our Website

Black Rock Elementary School is a Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 3 school of approximately 270 students that is nestled within the lovely hills of Litchfield County. We actively support students in their learning, academic and social development. We are fortunate to have a knowledgeable, dedicated staff that supports our students in fostering a positive collaboration with a wonderful parent base.

Each year, our school selects goals for our own emphasis on learning. It also allowed us to focus our energies towards a common purpose and establish a cooperative, community working together for student success. Our goals for the 2021-2022 school year are:

  • Implement common lessons and assessments based on Common Core State Standards.
  • Improve student learning in the areas of reading and writing.
  • Engage parents and the community at large in supporting our academic pursuits.

The purpose of our goals is to enhance the learning experience for all students at Black Rock School. It also allows us to direct our energies towards a common goal and establish a cooperative, community working together for student success.

Principal's Message

                                  Jonathan M. Kozlak,  Principal

Dear Black Rock School Community,
     Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! We are filled with the anticipation of great things to come. The school building looks fantastic and our teachers are busy preparing their classrooms for the return of the wonderful children of Thomaston on September 1, 2021.
     We are so excited to bring all students back to in-person learning! This year, we will continue to provide a safe and healthy school environment while challenging our students as critical thinkers and problem solvers. Last year, we proved that the amazing staff at Black Rock School will do whatever it takes to foster learning, even under the most challenging conditions.
     This year, we will continue to communicate with our parent community regarding important school information and updates on our programs and offerings. I welcome an open dialogue with all community members regarding your questions, concerns, or suggestions on how we can best serve the children of Thomaston. Welcome back!


Jonathan M. Kozlak
