2022-2023 TES Yearbook Cover Contest

Students in all grades are encouraged to participate and the winner of the contest will receive a $50 VISA gift card and a free yearbook! The students whose designs finish in 2nd and 3rd place will receive a free copy of the yearbook and will have their artwork featured inside the yearbook. The yearbook committee will narrow down the selections to a final ten entries and then TES students and staff will vote for their favorite design. 

Entries should be inspired by this year's theme, 
“We are Crew - Not Passengers”.  Crew means pulling together, thinking together and supporting each other to do things bigger and better than we all thought possible.  We look forward to seeing student’s creative ideas incorporating the theme!

Seeking Room Parent!

A Room Parent is a volunteer who helps a teacher by serving as the liaison between the teacher and other classroom families. Additionally, the Room Parent relays information about classroom supply needs or asks for volunteers for various events. This is a great way to be involved with your child’s class and to help foster family involvement! If you are interested in being a room parent for Ms. Roberts class, please contact your teacher and let Scott at know.
