    Aug. 18, 2020 - Welcome new Torrey Pines Elementary School (TPES) families! The Torrey Pines Elementary School Foundation is excited to host a virtual event this Sunday, August 23, from 3:00 to 5:15 PM, welcoming you to our amazing community! This is a fun opportunity to meet new and current TPES families, learn more about our wonderful school, and make new friends!

    New enrolled families and current families who want to volunteer to meet new families can register here by Friday, August 21st at 6:00 PM. After you sign up, you will receive Zoom details before the event! 

    We will hold two Zoom sessions depending on your child's grade. If you have more than one student at TPES, you are welcome to attend both sessions or choose one based on grade-level. Grades 1-5 will join us from 3:00 to 4:00 PM and Grades TK/K will join us from 4:15 to 5:15 PM. 

    We will begin with an introduction by TPES Principal Nona Richard and our TPES Foundation Board. Then, we will move to Zoom breakout rooms to get to know one another better. When registering for the event, please indicate which breakout room by grade you would like to attend. 

    All children are invited and encouraged to attend! Please bring your favorite picnic snack/drink and wear your TPES t-shirts or other school apparel if possible. Let's show how much we love our school!

    We need VOLUNTEERS from our current TPES families to attend and help moderate the breakout rooms. We have fun ideas that we will share with you. When registering for the event, please indicate if you are a new family or not. We will be in touch by email with more information. Let's warmly welcome our new friends together!

    We cannot wait to meet you!

    If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Alina Mullen and Jen Fiorentino at

    P.S. To ensure that you receive your Zoom details, don’t forget to register here by Friday, August 21 at 6:00 PM. Please note that only enrolled families will be sent a Zoom link.
