An important mesage from our counselor...

Hello awesome TES families! We want to hear from YOU about the emotional climate at TES! Click HERE to complete our short parent survey (encuesta para padres en Espanol). Complete the survey by May 10th to be entered for a drawing for a $25 GIFT CARD to Clark's! 🙂

Also, students K-2 will be having a lesson on safe vs. unsafe touch beginning in mid-May. This will empower students to know when touch crosses over to inappropriate/unsafe and how to speak up and tell safe adults. If you would like to  opt your child out of this lesson, or ask more about the lesson content, please email: by Wednesday May 15th!
