Travel Study

We are receiving many travel study requests in the office. I wanted to review the travel study requirements that are in the TBE handbook.

  • Travel must be for five or more school days
  • The travel study request must be made at least two weeks in advance of the trip to allow the teacher adequate time to prepare the work
  • Student must be in good academic standing and meet attendance requirements
  • All work is due the day the student returns to school

Thank you!

Box Tops

Hello students, families, staff and friends of TBES! I am super happy to announce that I have completed the first submission of this school year. We have earned a total of $610 so far this school year! That is absolutely amazing! $563 was from the old school clip and turn in program. $47 was from the new scan and earn program. Thank you so much for all who have braved the new scan and earn program. It is very user friendly and if you haven’t tried it, download the app and give it a try. Side note...we will continue to the old school clip and turn in program (along with the scan and earn) as long as companies are printing box tops on their products. I believe we set a goal for 20,200 box tops for the year. We are well on track for meeting that goal. About a quarter of the way there!!! Way to go! Keep scanning and clipping!!!

TBES coordinator,

Shannon Ward
