Welcome Back from Our Administration

Welcome to Zia 2015-2016 school year!  We are excited to have your student be a part of our Thunderbird experience.  Whether your child is a new incoming 6th grader or a returning 7th or 8th grader,  we hope they are as excited as we are for a new school year.  Please know we are here to support your son or daughter in being successful so they are prepared when it’s time to move onto high school.  If you have questions, we encourage you to contact the school to speak to your child’s teacher, counselor, or administration.   We know it’s going to be a great year!

Go Thunderbirds!
