Hello Thunderbirds!

Hope you all are having a fabulous Wednesday and enjoying these awesome cool mornings! Fall is here! Yay! And to celebrate we are having our annual…

Fall Carnival in two weeks!

Please volunteer to help at a booth. The sign ups are in the foyer. Also don’t forget to bring in your gently used toys to be used for prizes. Lastly, check out the pdf below to find out what food item your grade is in charge of donating.

The carnival crew is working hard to make this event as awesome as it always is and they always could use more help. Check out the volunteer corner below to find out what kind of help is needed.

Volunteer Corner

Carnival Clean Up Captain needed!
We are looking for a volunteer willing to help lead our clean up efforts after Carnival next Friday. There are always many hands pitching in, but we need someone to direct the effort. If you are able to help, please contact volunteers at

Teacher Support
This time of year is always busy for teachers with initial assessments, conferences and report cards due. If you have a few extra minutes, be sure to check in with your child’s teacher or one of their teammates to see if they could use help making, copies, preparing materials or putting together a bulletin board. They will appreciate the extra help!

Carnival Heavy Lifting Crew
We are in need of some powerful guys and gals to help move carnival booths and furniture before and after the event, Friday, October 21st. Set up 3-5pm / Clean up 8-9pm. If you are able to help, please contact volunteers at

Upcoming Events

  • Aug 16
    Ice Cream Social/Meet Your Teacher

    Time: 3:30 pm-5:30 pm


    Annual Back-to-School Ice Cream Social: Find classroom assignments and meet your teacher at this annual event. Come by any time after 3:30 and stroll through your classroom. The cafeteria will have information about the school available and ice cream/non-allergen icy pops available to cool off from the heat. Please plan on stopping by the cafeteria with your child.

    The social is also a great time to bring school supplies to your classroom too! School supplies can be placed in a bag with your child’s name on it. Please do not place your child’s name on individual items/school supplies within the bag. If you cannot make the social, school supplies can be brought in the first week of school. Questions about supplies can also be posed to teachers at the social or during the first week of school as well, and purchased thereafter.
