TES Staff Update

For the weeks of July 30 - August 10

Our Mission

Lapeer Community Schools is a dynamic community organization embracing our students with a quality learning environment, developing independent and confident learners for the future.

Non-negotiable Goal

Collaboration, Compromise and Commitment

We are "Turrill Tough"

#TurrillTough means...

...at Turrill we're not just building things. We want to work with our parents to build better people!! A Community of Success!


We think that each one of us is strong individually but we are even stronger when we work together.


One indicator of success that we looked at this year was our number of office referrals.


How did we do this year? Take a look at the graph below that compares the number of office referrals by month for this year compared to last year.


Being Kind and Respectful is...


being Turrill Tough!!
