Parent/Guardian Feedback

At TES, we are constantly reflecting on our practices and exploring options to enhance what we offer our students and families. We are looking for your feedback on the Grades 1-5 Open House Event. Please provide your feedback on the link below by the end of the day Friday. Thanks!



Please send in a canned good/non-perishable item or $1.00 donation for Adopt a Family.

This year, TES will provide the opportunity for students and staff to wear costumes on Friday, October 28th - Halloween! In order to make the day a success, we have developed a few guidelines.

Most importantly, all costumes must be school appropriate.

All students participating must come to school dressed in their costumes -- no getting ready in the building. Therefore, students should not bring makeup or hair products to school.

Basic Costume Don't's:

  1. Costumes may not have parts that interfere with learning. This means no masks or costumes that restrict movement or vision, or prevent sitting at desks Costumes must not obstruct movement in the hallways.
  2. Costumes may not promote violence or have accessories or props that could be used as a weapon.

Please remember that this is still a school day. Students are expected to fully participate in class throughout the day. We are looking forward to everyone following the guidelines, coming up with creative costumes, and having fun!

Friendly Reminder: Please do not send food or candy into school.
