SophiaTelluride Schools Prepare for 14-15 Early Release Tuesdays

With new curriculum, new state learning standards, and the goal to increase the rigor to ensure that all students are appropriately challenged, the Telluride School District will pilot a 1-year early release for all students during the upcoming school year in order to provide time for teachers from across grade levels to work together.  Except during the weeks of December 15 through February 2 (Ski PE Weeks), students will be dismissed on Tuesday at 1:50pm from TES and 1:55pm from TIS and TMHS.  Buses will run their routes shortly after school is out.  Both the school and the area non-profits are finalizing plans for opportunities for students on these days AhHaa, Telluride Academy, Pinhead and others met to work on designing various priced programs for students on these Tuesday.  In addition, the school will offer a $5 afterschool activity to replace the former PEP program.  Punchcards will be available for purchase in the fall for the School Program.  Please check your schools back to school letter for more information.  These letters will be mailed in early August. In addition, area non-profit activities will be posted on the website through the "Green Folders" icon.

Parent Portal for 2014-2015 School Year
If you created a log in for the Infinite Campus Parent Portal last year, nothing has changed. The direct link is under the Parents and Students link above.

If you have never used the Parent Portal to view your students' attendance and grades, contact Tava or your building admin assistant for instructions.

You do not need a login for our new website; teacher pages with assignments and class information are open to view. Look under Staff Directory under the appropriate school to find your child's teacher.


J Bennett Author

On Tuesday, March 25th, author Jeffrey Bennett visited the Telluride Elementary School and the Telluride Intermediate School.  Dr. Bennett is an astronomer, teacher and writer.  He has written several children's books including "Max Goes to the Moon", "Max goes to Mars", and "Max Goes to Jupiter".  The students really enjoyed listening to Dr. Bennett talk about Max (who really was his dog) as well as learning tons of interesting facts about space.  Jeffrey has also written books for adults on the theory of relativity and mathematics.  His presentation at the Wilkinson Public Library was on his book, "What is Relativity?", which was quite interesting and thought provoking.  A big thank you goes out to We-R1 and the Wilkinson Public library for facilitating this exciting event!

We miss his daily presence keeping TES kids safe as they arrived at school each morning.

A Letter from Principal Colleen Mahoney:

Dear Parents and TES Supporters,

 Welcome to the new school year!   Along with a new school year comes exciting educational initiatives to help TES students achieve their academic goals. One of the major changes your child[ren] will notice is a revamping of the school “flooding” program.  “Flooding will now be referred to as “WIN” [What I Need] time on the school schedule.   Read more……

Welcome to the start of a great year!
