Tiger Skill of the Month: SELF CONFIDENCE!

AT TES this year, our staff is continuing to use the book THRIVERS by Michelle Borba, Ed.D. to help guide us as we teach our students to THRIVE. We are focusing on her 7 teachable skills to help students learn how to flourish and succeed in our fast-paced, digital-driven, ever-changing world. These seven skills are being embedded in the culture of our school through conversations, lessons, social interactions and expectations. They are:

  1. Self-Confidence
  2. Empathy
  3. Self-Control
  4. Integrity
  5. Curiosity
  6. Perseverance
  7. Optimism

Each month, we will focus on one skill by teaching, modeling, and recognizing it on campus. We will continue to celebrate students who are Thriving at TES with Tiger Thriver Tickets, Top Tiger recognition at our weekly assembly, and written and verbal communication from staff members. We will also share with you some of the ways you can help your child develop these skills at home. Please let us know if we can guide you further or if you have any questions along this journey. We look forward to helping all of our Tigers THRIVE this year!

A Message from the Principal

Hi Tigers!

We have enjoyed seeing all of our returning families and meeting those of you who are new to TES over the past few weeks! We are off to a great start this school year and we hope that you were able to join us at Back to School Night last week. If not, please reach out to your child's teacher to get information from their presentation.

We have some exciting events planned this month including picture day, our first ELAC meeting, and "Because Nice Matters" week. Please continue to check your child's Red Tiger Folder each week, our school website, our TES Instagram and Facebook pages, our outdoor marquee, and of course the event calendar below for important updates and school information.

We hope you have a fantastic September and please do not hesitate to reach out to the school office if you have any questions or concerns!
