Happy Summer! – May 25, 2019

Happy Summer Thunderbirds!

Time flies when you are having fun, and we had a ball this year! We are so proud of all of our students and thankful to our amazing community of families, volunteers, teachers, staff, and administration for enriching our THES 2018/19 school year. Lots of memories have been made, and lots of learning achieved. We hope each and every one of you has a wonderful and safe summer! As we close out this school year we just have a few last things to share.

Report Cards

Make sure to check with your child for their final report card it came home on the last day of school! We are also sent home some nifty bowling passes to enjoy some cool indoor fun on a hot summer afternoon.

2019/20 School Supply Lists

The supply list for the next school year was sent home with your child on Friday. For your convenience, we have teamed up with School Tool Box to offer prepackaged school supplies that you can order online and have delivered to your home. Place your order by July 20th to have them in time for the start of school! You are also welcome to shop on your own and can find the supply lists by grade on the THES website.
