Message from the Principal

We are getting closer to spring and we are welcoming signs of nicer weather. We are also looking forward returning to more normal circumstances here at TES. As always, I am so thankful for all the community support we have received as we have responded to Covid. We are so fortunate to be part of a strong community. Let’s keep it up and remain T9O strong!


Mr. Harrington/Principal

Spring Conferences

Conferences are March 29 through April 1st. Teachers will be reaching out to you to schedule. Parents will have the option of in-person or Zoom meetings. Please have your child attend the conference with you.. This is an opportunity to celebrate success, set goals and maintain high expectations for all our students. Come prepared with any questions, suggestions or concerns you might have. Working together we make your child’s school experience awesome!

State Testing

Students will participate in state mandated testing at the end of the month. Reading will be the week of Conferences and Math will be the week after spring break. 5th graders will take the Science test the week of March 14th.

Tiger Store

As part of our emphasis on teaching and acknowledging positive behavior, all students earn TIGER PAWS for demonstrating good behavior. The Paws are handed out by staff throughout the day. Students save up their Paws and can use them at the Tiger Store.
