WOW! Anyone who attended last night’s SCHOOL WIDE MEETING also got a treat! We witnessed an amazing performance from our 2nd and 3rd grade students on the Orffs! Hats off to Ms. King and Ms. Chin - and our our little Thunderbirds - for making this event happen. It left a huge impression on the importance and beauty of music education in our schools. To watch these young children keep in time and perform such melodic pieces was touching and inspirational. Big thanks to our PTA and our neighborhood for the donations received last year which allowed Ms. King to purchase all kinds of new instruments (including the Orffs) so as to enrich the music education of our children (and parents too)! APPRECIATION PUMP TO 2ND AND 3RD GRADE TEACHERS, STUDENTS, AND TO MS. KING AN MS. CHIN…PUMP! PUMP! PUMP! (6 photos) ...

Hi Thunderbirds!

There is a lot happening this week and most of it seems to be happening Thursday night!

Tonight though we have Science Fair training in the Cafeteria from 6-7p.m. Science Fair is mandatory for 3rd-5th Graders and Voluntary for Kinder-2nd.

Thursday’s events start off with a Thunderboard meeting at 4p.m., followed by the final Volunteer Training of the year at 5p.m. – if you want to go on field trips with your kids you must do a training session! Then at 6:00 p.m. we have a school-wide meeting to discuss the proposed calendar changes and for the finale a wonderful performance from the 2nd and 3rd Graders!

On Friday we will have a Coffee Chat st 8:00 a.m. where the topic again will be about the Proposed Calendar change. Come share your thoughts with us!
