The Thunderbird Fundraising Team needs you!

I know you all enjoy all the innovative programs we have at THES. Blended Learning, Dual Language, Project-Based Learning and Social Emotional Learning are huge parts of what makes our school great. Unfortunately these amazing programs are not completely funded through the district and state. In order to keep them in our program we need to fill in the gaps. We are exploring different avenues to close these funding gaps and need to create a team with a wide variety of skills to help plan new ways to find sources of funding. If you are interested or have ideas please check out the Fundraising Team pdf for more information.

It’s almost time for Cinco de Mayo!

The 6th annual year end celebration at Guero’s Taco Bar is always a fun night with friends, family, tacos, music and drinks in the oak garden at Guero’s Taco Bar.

Join us from 5:30- 8pm on May 3rd.

Performances by The THES school Choir, THES Ballet Folklórico and Scott George and the Other Guy.
