Thunderbird Parent Club

The Thunderbird Parent Club (formerly the Academic Booster Club) is a volunteer group dedicated to celebrating, promoting, and supporting the educational development  and achievements of our LCC students. All LCC parents, faculty, alumni, Lima Catholic elementary school parents, and supporters are invited and encouraged to support and to participate in our monthly activities/events.

Thanks to the generous support of our LCC parent/family volunteers, the Thunderbird Parent Club is able to fund some activities and allocate resources for faculty requests. Costs associated with recognition of student achievement, teacher appreciation meals, educational materials, and teacher education are often financed by the efforts of the Thunderbird Parent Club volunteers.

Teacher/Staff Hospitality

Parent volunteers sign up to donate items, funds, and their time for several teacher meals provided during the school year. The LCC teachers and staff greatly appreciate the wonderful hospitality and generosity from the volunteers of the Thunderbird Parent Club. 

Academic Letter Award Ceremony

The Thunderbird Parent Club provides volunteer and financial support to recognize and promote academic achievement at LCC. The culminating event for the Club is the Academic Letter Award Ceremony held in the spring. It recognizes all sophomore, junior and senior academic letter winners. The Thunderbird Parent Club volunteers to assist the Guidance Department in organizing/setting up for the ceremony. They also provide the funding for the academic awards and refreshments. Our generous parent/family sponsors make this ceremony possible. The next Academic Letter Awards Ceremony will be held on Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019.

ACT Prep Course

Parent Volunteer: Stephanie Evans

The Thunderbird Parent Club sponsors an 8-week ACT prep class prior to the spring ACT exam. The course generally begins approximately 9-10 weeks prior to the test date and is held at Lima Central Catholic. It is taught by qualified and experienced Science, Math and English teachers. There is a fee for the course but it is generally less than that charged by other test preparation organizations. LCC students are given first priority but students from other schools are welcome to participate if the class is not filled.

The Thunderbird Parent Club depends on parent/family volunteers and donations to carry out its mission to support LCC. Please HELP us by becoming a volunteer and/or making a donation. THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
