Parents, we need your help stuffing Wednesday Folders! If you could spare some time right after drop off this Wednesday (or any Wednesday) that would be amazing—please stop by the cafeteria. The more the merrier and the faster we can get it done! Arrive when you can and stay for as long as you are able.

**FOR THOSE WHO ARE NEW: Every Wednesday folders are sent home with students as a way for us to communicate important information about THES and your student's classroom. Welcome aboard!

Bienvenidos Thunderbirds! Please stop by the library tomorrow (8/20) after dropping off your new and returning Thunderbirds to enjoy a cup of coffee and conversations with other parents. Let's share a sigh of relief, a gasp of joy, or some reassuring words/tissues (it can be tough dropping off that little Kinder). Hope to see you there 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less

Can you believe it is finally here! First Day of School is Monday (8/20) from 7:40am–3:00pm (PK has a staggered start schedule the first week). Be in your classroom by 7:40 (that’s the tardy bell, so it's best to aim for several minutes before) to start your first day of school on time and ready for a week of fun and learning! Pick up is at 3pm— walkers head to play pad while car riders/bus riders join other lines. Make sure your child’s teacher knows whether she/he will be a walker, car rider, or bus rider. It’s going to be a fantastic year! ... See MoreSee Less
