Y’all Rock So Hard!!

Here’s to all you 4th grade parents with a special call out to Kim O’Driscoll for organizing yet another super successful Thunderbird event!

Summer Chicken Crew

We need a team of volunteers to help care for the THES chickens over the summer. Training will be provided and we are looking for families to take care of the chickens for a week at a time. This will involve coming to the school daily to feed/water, clean the coop and let them roam free for a bit. For more information, please contact
