PTO Eblast 9/11/14


Welcome back, TES family!  School seemed to roll around far too quickly this break but it’s been so good being back on campus this last week getting to see all of the kids back from break, rested and ready to go!  As always, we are hitting the ground running in the PTO!  As you will see below, we have several open Team Leader positions and many volunteer opportunities.  Volunteers are the heart of the TES PTO!  I look forward to working with returning and new volunteers in the coming school year!  It’s going to be another fabulous year at TES!

See you on campus,

Brook Markley, PTO Secretary


MEMBERSHIP   PTO membership forms will be in your child’s Monday folder on September 16.  While all families are automatically members of the TES PTO, we ask everyone (new and returning families) to complete the membership form and return it to your child’s teacher as soon as possible.  We are unable to add new families to our e-blast system without a complete membership form.  Returning families, we are in the process of doing some much needed maintenance on the e-blast system and will be deleting all old information.  So if you wish to continue receiving e-blasts or know of someone who is not receiving e-blasts, please return your 2014-2015 membership form as soon as possible and encourage others to do the same.  As you know, being part of the TES PTO e-blast system is the best way to stay current on things going on at school.  Watch for the form and return it at your earliest convenience!  Please contact Brook Markley ( with questions.


VOLUNTEER  Are you looking for a way to become involved in the TES PTO?  We have several important positions still open this year:

  • Financial Secretary,
  • Display Case Coordinator,
  • Membership Coordinator,
  • Spirit Gear Coordinator,

Please contact Kristina Hepburn ( for more details.
