Thunder Store news

The Thunder Store will be closed this week for inventory before we open next week with our new computer scanning system.

We will be open next week during Parent Teacher conference times with an extra location in the elementary if we can get enough volunteers.  Please take a look at shifts for ES & MS on October 18th & 19th. Sadly, if we don’t have the manpower for each location, we will not be able to open. Let’s try to get every shift covered because parents & staff really appreciate the store being available these days. Sign up here

We are also excited to announce a website to order additional sizes and styles of Thunderwear!  There is NO shipping charge and you order by CREDIT CARD!  We have samples at the Thunder Store for all the items being sold online.  Order by October 26 for delivery November 16. Orders can be picked up at the Thunder Store or we can hand deliver them to students.  See the site here
