A few months before the end of the 2018-2019 school year, the administration of Marjorie Veeh Elementary together with the Tustin Unified School District administration informed the parents that they would be closing down their doors at the end of the school year.
Here is a walkthrough of the Thorman and Currie schools. This was recorded at the beginning of 2019 to show parents what the campus looks like and what to expect if they were going to move their kids form Veeh to Thorman.
This unforeseen closure hit a lot of the teachers, parents, and staff especially hard because of their attachment to this school. Some staff had been working there for almost two decades.
All the parents were invited to tour the various neighboring schools in the district so we could decide where to place our kids.
As soon as we were advised that Thorman Elementary would be the school to pick up the Spanish/English dual immersion program, we decided that's where we would enroll Claire.
This is a video tour of the Thorman & Currie schools, I took this during the first visit to the campus.
