Wednesday Folder – June 1, 2016

Summer… Summer… Summer… Summertime!

Oh Zac Efron and The High School Musical crew – your performances say it all, no need for me to write any more. 🙂

A Fond Farewell

I have had a blast writing the efolder (and searching out fun gifs and videos) these past couple years but now it is time to turn it over to someone new. Ms. Dani Diepenbrock has gallantly volunteered to be your efolder writer and source of all information next year. Thank you Dani, you rock!

The efolder has grown so much in the past few years, there was a time there where I’m fairly confident (quite sure, infact) that I was the only one reading it, but now we are heading to 200 subscribers (out of the ~300 families at our school) and growing each week! And I know big things are in the works for next year, including a website refresh. I’m excited to see where we go.

Have a blast this summer and I’ll see you all around school next year!

    Location: THES gym

    Description:

    Save the date and save your stuff! The 2nd Annual Thunderbird Thrift will take place in the gym from 8am-noon. This fun event was created last year to present a great way for our community to shop second hand and also help raise money for our school. 

    Please donate GENTLY USED CLOTHES, TOYS, BOOKS, HOUSEWARES, and ELECTRONICS. Ask your friends, neighbors & family if they have donations for the sale – the more inventory we have, the better the sale!

    Shop the sale early, and stick around for BEAUTIFICATION DAY! Just 30 minutes of gardening and clean-up can make a huge difference in how our campus looks and feels for our children.  The whole family is welcome!
    Contact Maria Bergh (mebergh@gmail.com, 512-585-2708) or Anna Roth (anna.m.roth@gmail.com, 832-498-2398) with any questions or to schedule a donation drop-off.
