AISD FOOD SERVICES SURVEY

As we develop school menus for the 2018-19 school year, feedback from our school communities is crucial. We are launching a survey, which will be open Jan. 22 – Feb. 16, to collect information that will help us create menus that best meet the needs and tastes of our communities.

    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!
