Illstyle & Peace

This high-energy variety-show-style assembly features jaw-dropping contemporary and old school Hip Hop dance moves interspersed with comedic sketches about getting through some of the challenges of school life by respecting peers, respecting teachers, and having the courage to speak out when necessary. In a fun, interactive concert, audiences will see how different skill sets can lead to equally impressive moves on the dance floor.


Kids Heart Challenge

Donations will be collected until March 18th. Checks can me made out to the American Heart Association. Thank you for your support!



It's hard to believe, but we are already beginning our planning for the 2019-2020 school year. Over the next two months, we will be creating the 2019-2020 class lists based on our best estimate of the enrollment projections and current budget information. We would like to assure you that every effort will be made to create balanced classrooms that represent a range of styles, abilities, and interests so as to achieve an optimal learning environment for all students.

The process of placing students appropriately is a complex one that involves a great deal of thought and effort on the part of the staff. Classroom teachers, special educators, school counselors, special subject teachers, administrators, and other staff members all take part in ensuring classes are well-balanced, dynamic learning communities. Classes are carefully crafted to place students with appropriate learning peers and a well-matched teacher. We take great pride in making sure this process is completed with care, and, at the same time, that it takes into account the interests of each individual child.

Factors considered include social relationship with peers as well as academic and emotional needs. While individual needs are given a high priority, they need to be considered in the context of the group. The consensus of our educators is that the dynamic of the total group is the most critical determinant of a successful classroom experience. It is important to recognize that individual needs are better met in classrooms that “work” as a whole.

As parents/guardians, you may have additional insight and information that will aid in the placement process. Your cooperation with this request will assure a fair and credible process for placement for all our students.

On behalf of the TES staff, we ask that you respect our experience and professional judgment regarding the best class assignment for your child(ren) in the coming year. As always, we have your child’s best interests in mind and appreciate your trust and support.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the main office.
