Educational Tour Club
The Educational Tour Club (ETC) at Thunderbolt Middle School welcomes students with a passion for discovery. These students take advantage of opportunities to travel the country in order to learn about and experience new places, people, activities, customs, and cultures. Through these unique journeys ETC travelers become more confident, more independent, and more connected to themselves and others. In recent years, students have visited Miami, the Florida Keys, New York City, Washington DC, and Boston.
Throughout the year, ETC supports and fundraises in many community events, including Symphonic Winds, London Bridge Days, Havasu Balloonfest, and a wide variety of school-related sports.

- Maintain a minimum of a 2.0 GPA (C's or higher) with no F's on any report card.
