    Dear TPES Community,

    After diligently reviewing and discussing as a Board and with Principal Richard all of the guidelines and projections of COVID19, including guidance from CDPH, UCSD, WHO, and CDC, we have decided it is in the best interest of our community at large to postpone the gala at this time.  We are doing this in an abundance of caution, for the health of our direct community, and also for the La Jolla and San Diego community at large, keeping in mind those who are at higher risk of serious illness.

    This was not an easy decision, as many people have worked very hard to make this gala the spectacular event that it will be.  We want our community to come together in celebration and support of our school in a time when it is safe and healthy to do so. We appreciate your understanding in this matter and your support of our school and the overall health of our community.  We have worked with our vendors to reschedule; please mark your calendars with the new date of May 29, 2020.

    The Silent Auction is still happening!  While the Live Auction component will be postponed with the gala, the Silent Auction is moving forward now. So please take time to review the website and bid often!  More than ever, with postponing the gala, we need you to check out our great items and bid enthusiastically!  There are many exciting auction items that you will not want to miss!  And as always, this important fundraiser supports all of the wonderful things that happen at our school.
