Beards: Have you noticed all the beards being sported around TPS? Ten faculty and staff member are forgoing shaving to help the Student Council raise funds toward the purchase of a 3D printer for the school. A $1 donation to the "beard of your choice" will help us determine which facial hair style the Barber on 24th will creates on our hirsute volunteers!
