I am elated to welcome you to the 2015-2016 school year! As I enter my third year at Torrey Pines, I have a great respect for the dedication of all our students, staff and parents on the academic and social achievement for all our students. We all work diligently to ensure that Torrey Pines students have the foundational skills necessary to be college and career ready. We are constantly enhancing and changing our practices to meet the fluctuating needs of the work force. The Torrey Pines staff is devoted to keeping our students achievement at the top!
Torrey Pines has strong parents who have taken on many responsibilities throughout the school and who have been instrumental in helping us become the school we have grown to love. We have many ways for each parent to get involved in the school community. I encourage you to become involved in every way you can. Your children will benefit greatly from your involvement.
Attendance at school is critical for student success. Currently we are third out of the one hundred and sixteen elementary schools. Third is wonderful but we can do better! For every day a child is absent, it takes two days for that student to make up that absences. It is also imperative that students arrive on time. Please help to ensure that your child is at school before 8:25am.
In order to ensure that TPES is a positive learning environment, please review this handbook with your child. Pay extra attention to the Torrey Pines Expectations. We will be reviewing our expectations throughout the year. I highly suggest you also refer back to the expectations throughout the year. The more your child understands about the school environment the better year he/she will have both academically and socially.
Welcome to 2015-2016 school year at Torrey Pines!
