Wednesday Folder – May 24, 2017


Last week of folders!

Can you believe how close summer is? Every morning, the first thing my kids tell me is the number of school days left in the year. Today it is 5! 5 days left! Are you ready?

This is the last official Wednesday folder of the year! Even though there will probably be some more posts on the website and Facebook through the end of school and summer – so keep an eye out for them. In the meantime, in case I don’t see you before you go…

Have a fantastic summer and see you next year!!!

Reminders about End of Year schedule:

🎒 School Supplies

Lists will be sent home in the Report Cards next week. And we’re going to have an option to purchase school supply sets online – details coming soon.

📅 Save the Dates!

Even as this year is ending – we are hard at work getting next year planned out. Please take a couple moments to mark your calendars with these two important dates:

Ice Cream Social
August 18, 2017
Check out your new classroom, meet your teacher, drop off school supplies, share a sweet treat, AND purchase the new official 2017/2018 Thunderbird T-shirt! Check out the teaser video below to get an eye on the new shirt!

Welcome Coffee: First Day of School
August 21, 2017
After you drop off your students, please join us for a cup of coffee and a chance to meet other Thunderbird parents.

What time is it?

Appreciation Pump Time!!! 💪??💪??💪??

It was another super successful Young Artist’s Workshop Day!
Thanks to all the artists and volunteers and a super big Appreciation Pump 💪??💪??💪?? to Soo Lee-Spaw and Renee Pinchero for organizing it all!

And another Appreciation Pump 💪??💪??💪?? to all y’all because our Guero’s End-of-Year Celebration raised $3,325 for Camp Champions!

That means any 5th grader who needs financial assistance to attend Camp Champions this fall will receive it!

And finally, another Appreciation Pump 💪??💪??💪?? to our sponsors!
