Message from the Principals

Dear Desert Thunder Community,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Desert Thunder School!  This year promises to be another great one!  We will continue make it a priority to ensure our students have a safe, positive learning environment that allows them to be challenged to be 
thinkers, problem solvers and communicators.  We are committed to providing our students with opportunities to be successful, to be challenged to strive to reach their fullest potential and to inspire others.  

The quality of instruction will be second to none!  Our teachers and staff will continue to participate in on-going professional development and deliver the most current and relevant instruction to our students.  

Our families and community members play a vital role in the success of our students.  I am confident that we can continue to work together, as partners, to ensure that success.  We encourage you to visit our school any day, any time! 

The first day of school is Monday, August 7th.  School begins each day at 7:30 am and students are released at 3:00 pm.  Every Wednesday is an early release day and students are released at 11:45 am.  Meet the Teacher Night will be held on Thursday, August 3rd beginning at 5:30 am and running until 7:00 pm.  We look forward to seeing you there!

Soaring to the Top . . . Learning, Learning, Learning - No Exceptions!

Mr. Wayne Deffenbaugh, Proud Principal
