AISD Registration is open!

Students who live within AISD boundaries can now register online for the 2018–19 school year. Registration forms and the transfer request forms are available in the Parent Cloud at my.austinisd.org. For more information, please visit www.austinisd.org/enroll or call the THES office at 414-4495. The earlier everyone registers, the better it is for our budget and staff planning!

Science Fair is Next Week!

Join us Thursday January 25th for our annual THES Science Fair. Projects are due to classroom teachers on January 24th and you can find the requirements online. Check out the attached flyer for the viewing schedule.

Save the Dates…

Our next Coffee Chat is 8am on Friday, January 26th. The topic is SEL (Social Emotional Learning).
Friday, January 26th is also “Decade Day” Pick a decade from the past and have fun dressing up!
I ❤️ THES HomeSlice Day is February 12th — more details to follow!

No school on Friday, February 2nd!

Don’t Forget because if you show up at 7:30 a.m., you will be so sad that you missed the chance to sleep in a bit!

This is another of our District of Innovation planning days for teachers.

    Thunderbird Thrift Sale

    Location: THES gym

    Description:

    Save the date and save your stuff! The 2nd Annual Thunderbird Thrift will take place in the gym from 8am-noon. This fun event was created last year to present a great way for our community to shop second hand and also help raise money for our school. 

    Please donate GENTLY USED CLOTHES, TOYS, BOOKS, HOUSEWARES, and ELECTRONICS. Ask your friends, neighbors & family if they have donations for the sale – the more inventory we have, the better the sale!

    Shop the sale early, and stick around for BEAUTIFICATION DAY! Just 30 minutes of gardening and clean-up can make a huge difference in how our campus looks and feels for our children.  The whole family is welcome!
    Contact Maria Bergh (mebergh@gmail.com, 512-585-2708) or Anna Roth (anna.m.roth@gmail.com, 832-498-2398) with any questions or to schedule a donation drop-off.
