TES Family Updates

Welcome Miner Bees to the 2022-23 School Year!

It is so exciting to begin a new school year at Telluride Elementary School with all of you! I would like to welcome both returning and new students to TES. We hope that you were able to relax and make special memories with your friends and families this summer. Now it is time to look forward to a wonderful new school year- a great adventure in your learning!

Telluride Elementary School is such a special place to learn and grow. We are proud of our beautiful and historic school and have high expectations for each and every student that walks through our doors. Together with our dedicated staff, we will strive to make connections with students to help them feel valued, accepted, and safe at school.

Our overarching goal is to encourage active student engagement to foster a lifetime love for learning. The connection between the school and families is crucial for our child(ren)’s success in school. Always remember- we are stronger together! We encourage families to stay connected and informed by following our district website for important updates and information about our schools.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with questions or concerns.

We look forward to working alongside you this year!

Flipgrid Activity- so Mrs. Treinen can get to know you!

As the new principal at TES, I am anxiously waiting to meet all of you! Please click on the link below and have your TES student make a short video - introducing themselves and any interesting facts about themselves. This is a great way for me to connect faces with names before the school year begins.

If you have any troubles with the link, please let me know! :)

Technology Usage Fee for K-2 Students

Telluride Elementary School operates a 1:1 iPad program. Each student is assigned an iPad for the year. The usage fee for the device is $50 and is charged to the family once per year per student. That fee can be paid at the Open House on Monday, August 22nd. Please see Erika in the front office! *This can not be paid online- so cash or check is the only payment,

The TES Parent/Student has additional information about the technology guidelines if you need additional information.

The Parent/Student Handbook is also posted on the website under Telluride Elementary School.

Lunch Accounts

TES will be providing lunch this year but I want to remind everyone that it is no longer free for our students. That was a federal program that went away after last year.

Payments for school meals may be made online through the Titan Portal, or via check or cash to the school administrative office. The school cafeteria will not accept cash at the time of check out.

The beginning of the year is the best time to get signed up, even if you don't think your child will eat school lunches.
