TPE Families – Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!

This year, we are excited to be TPE Superheroes and continue to be #StrongerTogether. Please know that we are planning for a successful and safe opening of school. We wanted to take a moment to update you on school supplies, our uniform policy and other important events in the planning as well as invite you to some of our important communication pages and platforms.

During the week of August 24 – 28, families participating in Face to Face or Home Connect instruction will be invited to a drive thru event at TPE where you will pick up an informational packet. If you are participating in Home Connect, you will also receive your child’s workbooks and other curriculum needs. Your child’s teacher will also be hosting a virtual meet and greet during this week with you and your child. Please be on the lookout for information on these events!
