Picture Days will be on Thursday, October 16 and Friday, October 17.  Here is a note from our new photographer, Kate Riccardi: 

Hi, TPS Families, 

Many of you know me as one of the school's event photographers and the mother of three boys in grades 6, 4, and 2. This year I will also be the one taking the school portraits and class picture.

Picture day will be held on October 16th and 17th. A few things will be different this year. The photo sessions will take place in the Garage, and while they will still be studio-style portraits, the poses will be more spontaneous, and the shots taken with a hand-held camera for a more individual feel. - 

Pictures will be viewed and ordered online. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at - Kate

FDC (Family Diversity Committee) is happy to announce our first families of color play date, to be held on Sunday, October 19, 1-4pm. We'll be meeting at the home of Bob Prischak and David Acker, dads to first grader Miriam. Their address is 4626 Osage Avenue, 19143. Please RSVP to Bob at and let him know what you can bring. In the past, these play dates have been a great way to for both kids and families to get to know each other and talk informally about school. Hope you can come!
