  SAFETY AMBASSADORS NEEDED
We are looking for parent volunteers to help with traffic safety before and after school.  You will help parents find a stopping spot and children get to class on time and to meet parents after school, rather than enforcing regulations or issuing tickets.  This can improve the stressful situation many are driving into every morning.  

Officer Filley will be meeting with parents to discuss duties. 

If you are interested, please email Monica Winters.

  TPES RECEIVES 2013 NATIONAL BLUE RIBBON SCHOOLS AWARD
This honor recognizes TPES on a national level as one of California’s Exemplary High Performing Schools. Only 15 schools in California also received this honor and only 286 schools nationwide. The Department of Education honored 236 public and 50 private schools at a recognition ceremony this past November in Washington, D.C. In its 31-year history, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program has bestowed this coveted award on nearly 7,500 of America’s schools.

This is due to the continued support and hard work of students, parents, teachers, and staff to help us remain number one.  Thanks for all that you do to make TPES the best!

Read more about this honor in the San Diego Union Tribune article and in the La Jolla Light newspaper.
