Popcorn for Teacher’s on Monday

A special thank you to all the volunteers that helped out the final week before the start of school. Our teachers returned to a renovated teacher’s lounge, popcorn treats on Monday and and a breakfast bar on Tuesday.

We hope everyone got a change to stop by our PTA table at Open House today. If you did not, please look for the PTA information on the left side of your child’s back to school folder. Best wishes for a great start to the school year!

End of Summer Activities

Attention TCES Students! 

The PTA Reflections theme for 2018-19 has been announced!  This year’s theme is “Heroes Around Me.” As you take time to relax and spend time with your family this summer, begin thinking about what that theme will inspire you to create.  Maybe an original song, a dance, or even an original film.  Unleash your creativity to celebrate the heroes in our lives!  More detailed information will be sent out at the start of the school year.  Parents- if anyone is interested in being a part of a small committee to plan the Reflections contest for the upcoming school year, please email Jen Maddux (jamaddux@me.com) for more information!
