Our year books are completely created and designed by a small group of Grade 4 and 5 students. They develop the theme, write the story line, create the cover and clip art, and design the pages. Using school laptops, Year Book Club members learn how to use our online year‐book‐making software, manage digital picture files, apply basic design and layout techniques, and take digital pictures! The Club is managed (after school) by parent volunteers.

The chess club is open to all students, K- 5TH who can exhibit the maturity to learn and play. Beginners & Advance levels are welcome! This is an after school program only. Participation is voluntary and students will not participate during school hours. Chess Club details here>>

TPES students and teachers LOVE to work on their school gardens! We are lucky to have the opportunity to grow a huge variety of plants year round thanks to our ocean influence and mild climate.     If you're interested in helping with the school gardens please contact Ms. Isom or your student's teacher.


The School Safety Patrol was established in 1935 by the San Diego Police Department. The mission of S.S.P. is to promote the safe crossing of elementary students to and from school and to provide classroom education to maximize the safety of students at all times.

The School Safety Patrol is in nearly 90 schools throughout the city. Fifth and sixth grade students make up nearly 2,000 SSP members whose job it is to cross children and adults safely at their school locations. They are selected, trained, and supervised on an ongoing basis by Juvenile Services Team Officers from eight area stations.

Being a Student Council officer is a lot of fun; it is also a big responsibility.
Good leaders, those who perform such a task, are people who
are willing and able to speak in front of large audiences, good listeners, fair and honest, complete class assignments, follow all class and school rules and work independently.

If you possess the qualities listed above, chances are you will make an excellent Student Council officer. Elections are held on or around November General Election time frames.

Roughly two weeks before the elections, each classroom is asked to nominate students for their appropriate grade level office(s). Click here for more TPES Student Council details>>

Section 5 of Article IX of the California Constitution guarantees students a “free public education.”
