Welcome Back Party

Join your Thunderbird community as we celebrate the start of the spring semester and unveil our 75th Anniversary Mural by Sophie Roch!!
This event will include a potluck so bring a dish to share.
We will also have an art activity for the kids and a community soccer game if the weather is nice. (If not, we’ll move inside for volleyball.)

School Supplies
Would you be interested in being able to buy all of your child’s school supplies online in one easy to order kit? It could happen! There are many companies who provide this type of service. We need a volunteer to research the options and work with the school/PTA on selecting one that would work best for our school. If you are interested in helping with this project, please contact
