Our fundraising goal for Fall Carnival this year is $10,000 – that’s TWICE what we raised last year but we feel confident we can do it! Our kids and school need every penny to help cover just some of the funding shortages.

Did you know that each year, THES works with our amazing community to bring holiday joy to the Thunderbird families who need it most? Through OPERATION THUNDERJOY, our Parent Support Specialist collects wishlists while parent volunteers find donors for hundreds of clothes, shoes, and gifts and make sure they’re appropriately wrapped, tagged and delivered. It’s a good amount of work, but it’s JOYFUL work—that will remind your kids that the real magic of the holidays is in giving, not receiving! Please contact Dianna Perez to sign up today,, or 512.841.0855
