Wednesday Folder – August 14, 2019

Welcome back, Thunderbirds!

It’s hard to believe Summer is almost over. We are so excited to meet our new Thunderbirds and welcome our returning students for a wonderful new school year. We hope to see you all this Friday, August 16th at the Ice Cream Social!

Ice Cream Social + Meet Your Teacher

Friday, August 16th, 3:30–5:30pm

Join us this Friday for our annual back-to-school Ice Cream Social—we will be serving up cool treats in the cafeteria! You will also have a chance to meet your child’s 2019/20 teacher and drop off your school supplies. Don’t forget to stop by the PTA table to get more information about volunteering this year! We will also have some amazing raffle items, graciously donated by local businesses to help raise money for THES—tickets are $10, or 3 for $25.

2019/20 School Supplies

Have you checked off your school supply list? Lists for every grade are here!

Thunderbird Gear is Here.

Get yours at the Ice Cream Social! Each year we have a student t-shirt design contest to select our upcoming style. Student shirts are $5, adults are $10. Available sizes are Youth XS–XL and Unisex S–2XL. We also have tote bags and yards signs, each for $5. Show your Thunderbird pride!

Back to School Welcome Coffee—first day of school.

Tuesday, August 20, 7:45am

After drop off, please join us in the library for a cup of coffee and a chance to meet other Thunderbird parents!

We are looking forward to an exciting year of learning, connecting, having fun, and building our Thunderbird community!
