PTO Weekly Update 4/20/2016



All parents come cheer your child on! 


Today is the last day to ask for pledges so please follow up with anyone that is considering pledging your child.  Fans can pledge online at  Make sure to include your child’s access code if doing online.  It is easy to download the app and pledge or send an email from the website to the potential person you want to request the pledge.  Also the phone app seems to be working a little more consistent than on line.  Cash/check payments can be brought to school.  Please write check out to TES Foundation and include child’s name on the collection envelope they will receive on Friday at school.  Turn payments into their teachers.


If you have signed up to volunteer please come out and meet in the back of the school on the soccer field at 7:45am.  All runs will start with a 10 minute organized stretch ahead of time.


Below is the schedule.



Recess as regularly scheduled for school from 9:45-10:00am



Let’s have a great run!  If you have any questions between now and then please feel free to contact me:

The PTO does not currently have enough volunteers to help run this program. If you are interested in volunteering for 15 minutes after school every Friday please contact Courtney Pike.

The goal is for Popsicles sales to take place every Friday after school, weather permitting, and sales help support academic and enrichment programs at TES. The cost is $1.00. Small bills are appreciated! Popsicle Coupon Books can be purchased during the Friday sales for $10.00 (10 coupons plus 2 free). Please note that Popsicle sales will not take place on minimum days or the Friday before a holiday break.
