Room parents provide an invaluable service to our school. They are the main source of communication between the TPES Foundation, the classroom teacher, and the parents within each classroom. 

Being a room parent is a great way to get to know your child's teacher and the other parents in your child's classroom. Click here for more information and to apply!

One of the largest fundraisers of the year, and a fantastic way to support the school! This is a fun evening with a silent and live auction, great food and drinks, and dancing with friends.

Look out for Gala 2023 and be ready to have fun and be ready to bid at the auction. We need parents to buy tickets, come and have fun, and bid for terrific auction items ... all in the spirit of supporting our school programs!
