  • To provide more time for your questions and ability to get involved in your school as a volunteer or more. 
  • Replacing class lists and making the information more private and respectful.
  • Completion of needed forms that assist in gaining or retaining funding for our school site. 
  • Provided parents an opportunity to learn about the parent portal and how it works.

If you have siblings with different last names, please choose only one day to come that corresponds alphabetically with one of the dates.

Parents will need to go through a few stations, collecting stickers. Upon completion parents will receive the name of their students' teacher, room number, information sheet and TPES News Letter. 

Can't make those times? Call us and we can make an appointment during the day on August 22 and August 23 8:00-2:00 p.m.

Still out of town that entire week?We will have people out front to help you the first day of school (August 26, 2019).
