From Our Principal

Hello TPES Families

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. I look forward to seeing everyone for the first day of school, Monday Aug. 28 at 8:25am. Running Club will begin on Tuesday, September 5th starting at 8:05am. This is a great way for students to exercise before school starts and you get to avoid traffic!

We are getting new playground equipment which will be updated with all necessary safety features. We are in the first group of schools to get this update! Unfortunately with the multi-school contract, they were unable to complete all schools during the summer; therefore our playground will be under construction during the first weeks of school. The students will still be able to use the grass field, basketball courts, wall ball and four-square during this time.

Also this year, we will be getting air conditioning for all our buildings.  The project is currently at DSA for approval (typically takes 6 months).  As soon as the plans are approved, the project can begin.  I do not have a timeline; however I anticipate a start day in December or January.  I will continue to update all families as I am updated.

In addition, this year (hopefully November) we are getting an upgraded auditorium system through Prop S funds. This will greatly enhance all school assemblies & rotations.

Our goal is to ensure the safety of all our students during construction with as little impact to their learning as possible.

Thank you for your understanding as our campus becomes updated,

Sarah Ott | Principal
