🎉 T-Bird Fiesta!! 🎉
Can you taste summer – just a few weeks away? Join us at Guero’s next Tuesday to celebrate our kids completing another year of school and to and raise money for future Thunderbird 5th graders to attend Camp Champions Outdoor School. This community-building, educational, and crazy-fun three day, two night trip is the highlight of the year for our Thunderbirds and something they look forward to for years. But it can be quite cost prohibitive for our students.

Event: Tuesday – May 16th – 5: 30 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Where: Guero’s Taco Bar Garden – South Congress
What: Thunderbird Families, Kids + Neighbors (performances by kids + friends)
Why: Raise scholarship money for fifth graders who could not otherwise afford to attend Camp Champions, an Outdoor School and overnight experiential learning experience

- 4 Free Tacos (You can share with teachers or friends! Pick up at Gueros)

Help Us Keep the Communications Flowing!
This is a quick and easy way to help ensure parents stay informed about what’s going on. We are looking for a volunteer regularly check the calendar and send reminders to event leaders that they need to prepare communications materials. It only takes about a half an hour each week but is essential to ensuring messages get to parents on time. If you can help, please contact email@example.com
You are coming back next year, right?
I know it’s on your list but maybe it’s down in the middle somewhere but it’s time to move it up to the number one spot. What is it? Registration for next year. It is crucial for staffing and funding that we have all our students registered as soon as possible. Also if you don’t register before the start of school, your student won’t be assigned a teacher. If you need access to a computer or help through the process (it’s definitely not as easy as it could be) computers are available at the school and Ms. Gio in the office is an expert in the process and available to help anyone who needs it.
Go to my.austinisd.org and click on the Student Registration tile to register your student online.

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.
