All-School Weekly Note

TPSA Coat Drive: We are extending the coat drive through Monday.  Please take a few moments this weekend to see if you have any gently used, clean, and warm winter coats for children or adults.  We are also collecting warm hats and gloves. Coat racks are in the lobbies of both buildings.

Online Directory: Please note that access to the online directory will not be available Sunday, November 9, from 9am to 2pm because of scheduled maintenance.

Thanksgiving Feast: A TPS tradition is the All-School Thanksgiving Feast, which takes place on Tuesday, November 25, in the gymnasium. Please let your child's teachers know if he or she will be absent that day so we can plan accordingly.

Preschool Parent Coffee: Join Carlye Nelson-Major, Abbie Segal-Andrews, and Emily Weiss at the Preschool Parent Coffee on Tuesday, November 11, from 8:30 to 9:30am in the Maker's Lab in the Garage. The topic will be Friendship.
