Hello Trailblazer Families,

This week is going to be an exciting week at Tony Tobin! Because Nice Matters Week occurs the last week in September each year to reduce bullying and is designed to educate students about the harmful effects of bullying, to promote kindness and compassion, and to encourage each student to take a stand and have a voice in making each campus a Bully-Free Zone. Please join us as we promote kindness within our school community and our homes.

This week will be our first “virtual spirit week” of the year and we hope you can join in on the fun. Tony Tobin has planned a week full of fun with a focus on kindness, gratitude and appreciation. Tony Tobin is hoping for some fantastic pictures for our yearbook so please be sure to take a picture of your child(ren) participating in the daily events and email them to your child's teacher.

Thank you, in advance, for helping to make this a meaningful and fun week for our Tony Tobin Trailblazers..


Mrs. JoeAnna Hernandez

TTES Tech Help/Support

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you need help with your iPad. We are here to help and ensure students are able to fully participate in the school day. You can bring your device and come by the school site between 9am-3pm. Monday-Friday.

Coming Soon~Parent-Teacher Conferences

It's hard to believe that we are halfway through the month of September. October brings progress reports and parent conferences. Progress reports will be sent home in October to students that are currently considered at risk or at risk of retention. Parent conferences will be held during the week of October 12th. Teachers will be reaching out soon to schedule parent conferences with each parent.

School Attendance

SB 98 requires that schools must document daily participation of each student on each school day that distance learning is provided. Our goal is for 100% participation for each child every day which includes the "live" or synchronous learning sessions with their teacher, asynchronous learning and independent activities and assignments that are being submitted via Google Classroom or Seesaw. Teachers are documenting the students daily and weekly attendance. If your child is having difficulty participating in the daily expectations and routines, please reach out to us ASAP so we can resolve the issues. We have many support personnel on campus to support you and your child(ren) and we are here to help. Students will begin district assessments soon and it is critical that they are participating in the complete school day in order to be successful. Thank you for partnering with us to ensure our student's success.
