Mrs. Hemann, Principal


Blanca Hemann

Howdy! I would like to extend a warm welcome to all Thornton Texans. I am Blanca Hemann and it is a great privilege to serve as the Principal of Thornton Elementary School.


Campus of Champions 


Along with desire, dedication, and direction, a culture of excellence defines Thornton Elementary. We strive to create this atmosphere by encouraging positive attitudes and goal setting with purpose. At Thornton Elementary our goal is to instill in students success habits remembering that ability may take you to the top, but it takes character to stay there.

This year’s district theme, the Spirit of Northside, can be felt when you visit our school. Conversations, children and parents enhance our sense of community. Parents at times seem as wide-eyed as their children, perhaps more. All hopeful that we will see in their child the precious soul they have protected and nurtured. We, in turn, offer our best in service, instruction and love.

This will be a winning season. Starting with teachers - our “All Stars” who will be using the team playbook Teach Like a Champion to engage and enrich our most valuable players - our students. Together we will get into the full swing of learning and go the distance with The 7 Habits of Happy Kids.

I hope you will take time to consider the Spirit of Northside and the Spirit of Team Thornton. It’s going to be a grand slamming year at our campus of champions! Knowing our success can be attributed to the hard work and dedication put forth by the entire Texan faculty, staff and families.
