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 2020-2021 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.

Dear Black Rock School Community,
Welcome back for the 2020-2021 school year! Although the start of the school year will look different, there is an amazing energy here at the school as we anticipate the return of the children. We are excited to welcome the new staff members joining our outstanding faculty. Our team is working hard to provide the most authentic, supportive, and safe school experience as possible during this time. Each week, we communicate with our parent community with important school information and updates on our programs and offerings. I welcome the opportunity to communicate with all community members regarding your questions, concerns, or suggestions on how we can best serve the children of Thomaston.
This is going to be a great year at Black Rock School. Enjoy the autumn season!
