PTO Weekly Update 11/11/2015

Happy Veteran’s Day, Thank you for your Service!


Friday night dinner – “Dine-In” at TES. On Friday, November 13th from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. in the TES School parking lot the TES-PTO will be 3 different food trucks available to choose from with kid friendly menus. All three are popular food trucks in the San Diego community and excited to be a part of the Food Truck Dine In at TES. This year we are adding a movie playing on the K playground. Bring a lawn chairs, blankets and join families for a fun and unique dinner outside or pick up food to go and take home. Invite extended family, friends and neighbors to join too. All the food trucks will be donating a percentage back to TES-PTO from their sales on Friday, November 13th. Thank you for supporting TES – PTO’s Food Truck Dine-In fundraiser.



The TES-PTO is looking for volunteers who are interested in volunteer positions for the 2015-2016 school year. This school year is a great time for interested volunteers to get a chance to work with the volunteers who are 5th grade parents or teams that are in need of on-going help because of the program’s growth. The following PTO teams are hoping to get some much needed help – Science Fair, Spirit Gear, Hospitality, Gardens/Playground to Plate, After School Enrichment, Marquee and Tierra Times. TES and PTO hope to find volunteers to help keep these great events and services up and running. If you are interested in helping out or even leading a PTO position/team please contact Kristina Hepburn to find out more.

Thank you to all the families who have already sent in their voluntary donations for the Parent’s Choice fundraiser. This is how we can financially support programs like Art Corps, classroom and library grants, science fair, science club, Playground to Plate through gardening, Running Club, and more. We appreciate you! Remember that you can now donate online at our PTO website through PayPal, a monthly payment options is available. We are continuing to take Parent’s Choice – voluntary donations (online or returned to school). ANY voluntary donation amount helps!


The Playground to Plate/ Garden Program is responsible for all the wonderful gardens on the TES school grounds. The goal is to make sure all students receive garden time. The garden lessons are up and running for grades 2-5. Garden flyers were sent home grades 2nd-5th asking for volunteers to help out garden team leaders while they teach the lesson for the month. The Garden program is still hoping to find a lead volunteer to teach the already prepared TK/K/1st lessons once a month for 30 minutes. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Kristina Hepburn.
