Volunteers Needed for the TES Bookfair

Who: Telluride Elementary School students and their families.

What: TES Book Fair

Where: TES 4th Floor, hallway outside the library

When: February 22, 23, and Feb 27th- March 1st

How: We can’t have a book Fair without the generous support of parent volunteers!

Please sign up here to volunteer.

Why: To promote and encourage literacy and love for books! This is the only fundraiser for our school Library. Funds made from the book fair help us purchase new books for our library. This is also an excellent opportunity for families to build their home libraries to develop and increase reading skills, and make reading a family event at home.

District and Community Information

Aligning with our goal of HR practices that result in retaining and recruiting excellent staff, we have increased the wages for paraprofessionals and substitutes effective January 1, 2023.

  • Paraprofessional starting hourly wage is now $20-$25 per hour, based on education and relevant experience, up from a previous starting wage of $18 per hour.
  • Substitutes now earn $140-$160 per day, depending on the license they hold, up from $120-140 per day previously. Additionally, substitutes receive an extra $10 per day for each day worked after their first 30 in a given year.

Greetings All Kinder Parents/Guardians!

This is a reminder email to everyone to please send in proper “PE Shoes” for students to wear in the gym.

I know it is a lot to remember each day everything that our students need, but I wanted to remind everyone that NO SNOWSHOES OR SNOWBOOTS ARE ALLOWED IN THE GYM.
