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.
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.

Ice Cream Social/Meet Your Teacher
Time: 3:30 pm-5:30 pm
Annual Back-to-School Ice Cream Social: Find classroom assignments and meet your teacher at this annual event. Come by any time after 3:30 and stroll through your classroom. The cafeteria will have information about the school available and ice cream/non-allergen icy pops available to cool off from the heat. Please plan on stopping by the cafeteria with your child.
The social is also a great time to bring school supplies to your classroom too! School supplies can be placed in a bag with your child’s name on it. Please do not place your child’s name on individual items/school supplies within the bag. If you cannot make the social, school supplies can be brought in the first week of school. Questions about supplies can also be posed to teachers at the social or during the first week of school as well, and purchased thereafter.
