I Heart THES Fundraiser
We raised a whopping $25,000 in February to support reading and other critical programs at our school. Wow! These funds will help get us new library books, software, reading materials, English language learning materials and more. Every person and business who donated is helping making our school an even more sustainable community. Thank you to all the donors and to the volunteers who made signs, greeted parents, sent emails and contacted businesses. If you didn't get a chance to donate, make a gift today by visiting and help us get all the way up to $30,000. Every dollar counts!

Kerbey Lane Night
Thanks to everyone who ate queso and pancakes last Monday to benefit THES. Together we raised $500 to support our school! Thanks so much to Kerbey Lane Cafe on South Lamar and to the Fundraising Committee for setting this up. Look for more opportunities to eat delicious food and support THES soon!

Rummage Sale
The first annual THES Rummage Sale raised almost $2000 for our Parent Support Specialist and PTA! A big thank you to all our Thunderbirds and everyone who helped make the rummage sale a success — parents, teachers, staff, and neighbors who donated their gently used items for the sale, and our AMAZING volunteers who helped with set up and working at the sale. Special thanks to Maria Bergh and Anna Roth for their helping coordinate. Based on the sale's overall success, we hope to make it an annual event!

Beautification Day
A huge thank you to Ben Appl and his wife Deb Lykins for coordinating our Spring Beautification Day. We also want to thank everyone who came out to help make our campus a beautiful place for our students to learn. We couldn’t do it without you!

Shamrock Dance
The Shamrock Dance was a huge success! A big appreciation pump for THES parents Amarisa and Jaime Rodriguez for jumping in at the last minute to help coordinate it. A huge thanks also goes out to all of the 4th grade parents who donated items for the dance and their time! We couldn't have done it without everyone volunteering or bringing items. The kids had such a great time and we raised close to $2300 for the 4th grade Alamo trip!

Attendance is Important!

We frequently remind parents about attendance and tardies, and for good reason. Students are more likely succeed at school
when they come to school regularly. Being tardy or absent frequently negatively impacts a child’s learning. Studies have shown poor attendance can lead to behavioral problems
and higher dropout rates.

Additionally, every time a child is absent, the school loses an average of $72 per day. For the month of February, we had 307 absences school wide, which amounted to a loss of over
$22,000! That’s half a teacher’s salary! When we lose funds, we lose the ability to fund the programs and materials that are essential
school needs.

If your child is truly sick, please keep them home. Otherwise, please make every effort to get students to school on time at 7:40 every
day. We want your child to succeed!

Technology is a wonderful thing, but it too, has a dark side.

Parents, please be aware of what your child is watching and doing online. The infographic attached was posted to AISD's Facebook and we felt it was important to share with you, too. While we are not aware of any THES students engaging in unsafe behavior online, we want all of our Thunderbirds to be safe when they are on the internet at home!

Please take this opportunity to sit down with your children and talk to them about what is age appropriate online, and what to do when they encounter something that doesn't seem safe or makes them uncomfortable. At school, we closely monitor what our students do online. But it's up to parents to set the rules at home for screen time and technology use. If you have any questions or need additional resources, please speak with one of our counselors or the office staff!
