Wednesday Folder – November 15, 2017

Hey Thunderbirds!

Hope y’all are having a great week! I know y’all have been having so much fun in Primetime but don’t forget, this is the last week of Primetime until it starts up again in the spring. Be sure to give the Primetime teachers a high five and a big appreciation pump for all they’ve done this session. Thank you Primetime teachers and Ms. Guerra in the office for organizing it all again this year!

Appreciation Pump 💪??💪??💪??

And also next week is Thanksgiving Break- NO SCHOOL ALL WEEK!!!!

Do you have your ticket??

Visitors are invited to join their child for a traditional turkey lunch tomorrow, November 16th. In order to purchase a meal from the cafeteria, visitors must have a pre-purchased ticket. Tickets are available before or after school and are $4 for adults and $2.80 for child visitors. Lunch times will be different! Check with your child’s teacher for the correct time. (If you can’t make it in before or after school, tickets will be sold during lunch tomorrow as well- just allow extra time to purchase yours before heading to the cafeteria).

School Meeting & Performance this Thursday!

Our first School-wide meeting of the year is tomorrow, Thursday, 11/17. Join us at 6pm in the gym for a conversation about Safety Procedures at THES. Then stay for a musical performance by our 2nd & 3rd grade students. (Student performers need to be in the cafeteria by 5:45pm). Childcare will be provided during the meeting.

Chicken Crew

We are working on creating a team of volunteers to help care for the THES chickens on weekends and holidays. Training will be provided and we are looking for families to take care of the chickens for a weekend 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. If you are interested in helping out, please email

Coffee Chat

Our next Coffee Chat is Friday, December 1st (the week after Thanksgiving). This month’s topic is Literacy and we will hear from the school’s reading specialist on some of the online programs the school uses to support reading skills.

Science Fair is Coming!

Check out the attached flyer or our science fair page for all the details.
