It’s hard to believe another school year has come and gone, and now it is time to relax and enjoy the summer.
As I reflect on my second year at TES, I am proud of all we accomplished. Every year brings new celebrations and new challenges, and I am fortunate to work in a school that embraces both. New curriculum, new assessments, new staff, new schedules, additional incentives and awards, the Dual Immersion English/Spanish program in Kindergarten, and some building changes were some of the improvements to our school in 2014-15. Of course, no matter how many new ideas and initiatives are implemented, we know that the students, staff, and parents of TES are really who make it the wonderful place it is.
We won’t be facing as many changes for 2015-16, but when the school year starts you will see some new faces, some familiar faces in new places, the Dual Immersion program extended into grade 1, and continued work on the curriculum implemented in 14-15. Our School Spirit Committee, working with the Student Leadership Team, will continue to move forward with character education and innovations for continual school-wide improvement.
I would like to extend a sincere invitation to every parent of a TES student to join us on the TES Accountability Team. This committee meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 3:30 in the TES Conference Room, starting on September 2. At this monthly meeting, we discuss what is going on in the district but more specifically at TES, and we share ideas and suggestions and discuss what is working and what is not working. It is a great platform for our staff to listen to the parents’ concerns and opinions on how the school year is going.
Our TES Open House will be held on Friday, August 28 from 1:00-3:00 pm. Please stop by and drop off school supplies, meet staff, visit classrooms, and help prepare your child(ren) for a smooth start to the school year.
Our first day of school is August 31, 2015. The TES bell rings at 8:10 am, so please don’t be late! As is the tradition here, we will begin our first day on the front lawn of the school, where we will sing our school song, greet you all, introduce the staff, and “officially” kick off the school year. We are looking forward to a positive start, and we have many great plans for another great school year.
Enjoy your summer. Read, read, read with your children! Practice Math facts. Talk and listen to your children. Explore new places. Journal about travels and activities. But most of all, stay safe and healthy. See you soon!
