A Message from Dr. Debity

Dear TPES Students and Families,

We have had a busy start to this school year, and it is amazing that we are already finishing up the first nine weeks! Our students are doing a wonderful job, and teachers in all grade levels have been working diligently to help our students learn and grow. Please remember that all students should be reading at home every night. This is one of the best ways to reinforce learning.

I would like to thank everyone who attended our first PTO meeting of the year in September. We are looking forward to expanding our PTO membership and the opportunities that we can provide to our students. I would like to encourage you to participate in any way that you can. Don't forget that our Fall Carnival is just around the corner on October 25. I look forward to seeing everyone there and at our next PTO meeting, which is scheduled for 5:30 on Tuesday, October 18th. On behalf of the TPES faculty and staff, I thank you for sharing your children with us and for your continued support in their academic success.

Happy Fall Break!


Dr. Sheryl Debity, Principal

Attendance Counts

With the first nine weeks of school already behind us, we want to keep working toward everyone having a great year at TPES. Research has shown that students who miss even a few days of school each month are at far greater risk of academic failure and dropout than students who attend regularly.

We have set a goal that every student in our school attends regularly (has nine or fewer absences in a year). Please send your child to school every day unless he/she has a contagious illness or is running a fever.

What do I need to do if my child is not feeling well:

1) If your child saw a doctor for illness, please provide a doctor's note when student returns.

2) If your child was ill but did not see a doctor, you are allotted 5 parent notes you can submit. Please try to get these submitted within 3 days of your child’s absence.

*Students with chronic absences (students who miss 10% or more days school is in session) will receive attendance letters and communication from the Assistant Principal, Mrs. Duncan. Possible recommendation to truancy court can take place for chronic absences, especially those that are not verified.

August & September Students of the Month

Congratulations to our August and September Students of the Month! Cool Cub, our TPES mascot, was honored to be able to attend our program and help congratulate these Cubs!

Cubs Ambassadors

We are continuing to recognize students each week this school year for going above and beyond our school expectations. Students are nominated based on the qualities associated with being Cubs with Character and following our Cubs Motto: Giving Our Best and Nothing Less. We are proud to recognize our last few weeks of Cubs Ambassadors. We are #CubsStrong!
