Helping with a problem
Keeping track of what is happening when and where is a challenge many community members have expressed over the years. It is particularly difficult with students at multiple schools. Our TPA is working to help fix this problem.
One stop calendar for the community
We will work to capture date, time, and event information for events happening at Thunderbird High School, at all of the feeder schools (Mountain Sky, John Jacobs, Lookout Mountain, Moon Mountain, and Shaw Butte), and events that folks in our community will find interesting.
Help us stay up to date
Complete then submit the form below to request updates.
We hope that this calendar solves one small problem. We also hope that if this calendar works we will drive enough visitors to our website to generate ad revenue we may use to fund our TPA programs.
We tag each event with the school(s) connected with the event, community, and Thunderbird Parent Association for our events. Our calendar includes search functions so please – search for your event or your school to see what you find.
