Wednesday Folder – April 6, 2016

Hello Thunderbirds!

There is a lot of stuff in the folders today – just look at that link list. It goes on and on. And it doesn’t even cover everything I want to share with you today.

So click on those links to read the messages – especially about the THES Clearance Sale, the School Meeting and the Parent Survey Results. And I’ll use this space up here to tell you about some additional stuff. See what you get when you subscribe to the efolder? Not only less paper but a little extra info too. Pretty good deal, huh?

Ok the other news:

Take a picture… it’ll last longer!

The photo contest is still going so go ahead and submit your best images to or text to 805-758-7342. Remember to include the student’s name, grade and teacher.

Three photos will be selected per grade level and the photos may be featured on the website, facebook, slideshows or other promotional material.

More Election Coverage (minus the theatrics of the national stage)

Interested in seeing how hyper-local elections work?

PTA elections are held at the April 21st school meeting. Come vote for your favorite PTA board elective.

Save the Date! Guero’s End of the Year Party is Tuesday May 3rd.

More details to follow in the coming weeks. Just get it on your calendar today and block it off as fun!

Current Volunteer Openings

Often we find people want to help out but don’t know how they can. So we want to try to feature open opportunities for those interested in helping out. Looking for a good name for this. “Volunteer Spotlight” or “Volunteer Corner” are ones suggested. If you have an idea shoot me an email with your suggestions.

PTA Secretary
Ever wonder what the PTA really does? Here’s your chance to find out! The PTA is looking for a Secretary for next year to take notes at monthly PTA board meetings. It is a simple way to get involved and be a part of this dynamic team. Contact for more information.

Teacher Appreciation Team
Teacher Appreciation Week will be the first week of May. We are looking for some enthusiastic volunteers to join the planning team. If you can help, please email
