Community Update 2017/2018 - posted 18 July 2017
If you are new to the Thunderbird family, you just entered a very special school. Thunderbird Preparatory Academy is a close-knit educational community that promotes the academic and social development of all students in a safe, friendly environment.
I am honored and humbled to be the principal of this school, as this year will be my first year to serve the community in this capacity.
Our dedicated staff at Thunderbird Prep serves students in grades K-7. In addition to the core curriculum, Thunderbird Prep students experience daily instruction in one of these specialty areas: art, music, physical education, foreign language, and technology.
Parents/Guardians are always welcome at our school. We view our parents/guardians as equal partners in providing our children with meaningful educational experiences. Further, we encourage you to become active participants in school programs and classroom activities. There are many ways to support your child, such as volunteering to help in the classroom, volunteering for the PTO or attending one of our many school programs. We certainly understand many of you lead busy lives, and it is often difficult to volunteer at school. Just as important as volunteering is a nightly routine of reading to your child, talking about their day, and getting them prepared for the next day of school.
I am thrilled to be part of such an outstanding team! We invite you to join our community as we work together to best serve our students! Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have a suggestion, concern, or just a "good story" to share! I look forward to working with you and your children!
Mrs. Beth Jones
