Educational Tour Club

Thunderbolt Educational Tour Club Members of the Thunderbolt Educational Tour Club and their chaperones visit New York during their 2017 trip.

  • Participate in fundraisers throughout the year to reduce the cost of their trip.
  • Students need to have passing grades in all classes; no F’s each quarter.
  • No disciplinary referrals; no in-school or out-of-school suspensions.

Members may be removed for the following:

  • Failure to meet attendance requirements.
  • Failure to pay funding for the schedule trip.
  • Disciplinary referrals; such as, in-school-suspension or out-of-school suspension.

Thunderbolt's Educational Tour Club is excited to offer an educational trip to Washington D.C. Gettysburg, and Philadelphia to the students and families at Thunderbolt Middle School next school year! Dates: May 28 – June 2, 2018. Check out this short clip of the Washington D.C. part of the trip. ( If you have any questions, please contact Tiffany Lasister

If any student must withdraw from the tour, all funds ETC has issued to that student for his/her tour must be returned to the Thunderbolt Middle School Educational Tour Club. These funds will be used for the remaining students’ tour expenses.

The Educational Tour Club is a tax-credit approved club, so with help from friends and family who work in AZ and are willing to designate some of their AZ income taxes toward the educational tour Club, the trip doesn't have to cost anything. (A tax credit is money you will get back. It applies directly to the amount of taxes you owe when you file your AZ taxes). The Educational Tour Club will also sponsor fundraising events during the school year.
