Hey Thunderbirds!

Our Annual I ?? THES Fundraiser is a month away!

Every year we reach into our pockets to help fill our gaps in funding. Together, we make sure our children get the education they deserve. Last month, you received a SAVE THE DATE for February 12th-16th. We thought we’d give you a head’s up – more information will be coming in next week’s Wednesday Folders. Donations can be dropped off all week during the Fundraiser or made online at

Keep an eye on this space…we will be celebrating our donors from years past and announcing fundraising events and contests in the coming weeks. Let’s make this our most successful year yet!
