All Elizabeth Lane families are invited to participate in our partnership with Thomasboro Academy!

The Elizabeth Lane Elementary and Thomasboro Academy partnership has been in place for over 20 years and is still going strong – now more than ever! The CMS SchoolMates program has helped participating schools enjoy the opportunity to work together to create meaningful school-to-school relationships. Thomasboro Academy is a pre-K through 8th grade school located in northwest Charlotte. The school has approximately 750 students qualifying for 100% free lunch. Thomasboro Tigers and Elizabeth Lane Hawks demonstrate a community partnership that provides the opportunity to assist with all students having access to invaluable resources for success. Here are some of the Volunteer Highlights that take place throughout the year:

  • Fall: Household/School Supply Drive, Book Fair, New Coat Drive
  • Winter: College Tour, Reading Activity, Holiday Gift Drive
  • Spring: Household/School Supply Drive, Career and College Fair

Thank you to all who have volunteered to help our partnership succeed!
