Looking forward to seeing you at the Meet and Greet in the Garage (5:30-6:45pm) before Junior Unit and Middle School Back-to-School Night on Wednesday, October 1. 

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 [email protected]. - 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 [email protected] 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!
