Principal's Message

Dear Eagles,

We sincerely hope that this upcoming week off from school for Thanksgiving Break finds you with much to be grateful. We absolutely know that this online learning platform is a challenge and we want you to know that WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOU AND YOUR SUPPORT FROM HOME!

While we are very much looking forward to the day that we can all be together in person again, we appreciate how far we've come together in this journey. Our kids are amazing and resilient and so much more techy than any of us! They will make great leaders one day I'm sure.

Enjoy your time off. Try to relish family and friend time however that may look in your home and lives. Eat, play, read, explore nature and love each other. Show kindness and grace to your family, friends, neighbors, strangers and yourself!

We will see you back at school Nov. 30th.

Why we need your support:

I'm sure many families are wondering why PTA is still fundraising when our kids aren't in school. Here are some of the things we still pay for:

~ Teacher allocations for their classrooms.

~ Scholastic News/library books.

~ Scholarships for past TLES students.

~ Dues/fees that are paid every year to keep our nonprofit status.

~ Subscriptions for distance learning.

We also need money in the general fund for the next school year so that we can purchase Spirit Wear to sell, offer the teachers their classroom allocations, host Pastries with the Principal, Military and First Responder Appreciation breakfasts and plan school events.

Whether you choose to give to your community by donating your time, treasure or talents, take a picture of what you did to "give back" and send it in by this Thursday so we can see how our Eagles are making a positive impact on our community!
