Latest Pictures

 This will be the floor in the cafeteria kitchen.

This will be the steps in the "kiva" (or small theater) connected to the library.

This is the skylight in the southwest hallway.

This is a view of the Grand Canyon from Mather Point (where my family was fortunate to be able to spend some time during Spring Break).

A Few Helpful Tidbits

#1) Thunder Ridge now has a mascot. We are the Raptors (as in the dinosaur)! We have a couple of graphic artists working on some "kid-friendly" versions of this fun mascot that has ties to Utah's geologic history. There are no other schools in the district with this mascot, so it will be unique!

#2) Our school colors will be blue, green, and silver.

#3) The school is scheduled to be finished on July 29. Look for more details about the dedication of the building and other celebrations as we get closer to the completion date.

#4) Nearly all of our K-6th teaching positions have tentatively been filled by teachers who excitedly volunteered to come to Thunder Ridge Elementary. Most of the volunteers are coming from Harvest Elementary, Saratoga Shores Elementary, and Pony Express Elementary (and a couple coming with me from Lindon Elementary). Once placements are official, I will publish a faculty list. I think you will be very pleased with the quality, experience, and energy of our staff!
