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
