Important Tidbits

Isabella Wisner/5th placed 3rd in the Annual Galveston City-wide Spelling Bee sponsored by the Rotary Club of Galveston. Congratulations, Issy…we salute you!

Admissions Update: Our Open House events held over the past two weeks for prospective student were awesome! Last week’s Kindergarten Open House was well attended. We had the interest of several new families. Thank you to our “hosting committee” for being on-hand to greet, entertain, tour and inform our guests that evening: Mark Ravelli, Amy Gaido, Francie Buergler, Arden Cragar, Vashti Thompson, Rachel Brown, Patti Munoz, Catherine Garrison, Jocelyn Sullivan and her children (Ella/6th, Mallie Jaymes/3rd, and Delaney/2nd), TES Student Ambassadors (Jane Charpentier/8th, Maddie Pattillo/8th and Sara Gabriel/8th). Yesterday’s PK2-8 Grade Open House event yielded continuous traffic all day with lots of interest for multiple grade levels. Thank you to Amy Gaido and Chloe Knauer for assisting all day with tours and pre-event preparations; Donna Cucco for organizing student volunteers for both events; Randy Woods, Roland and Rosa Mora for helping with set-up for both events; and more TES Ambassadors who did another fabulous job representing our school as they provided campus tours; Megan Maxwell, Mac Livanec, Maggie Cragar, Ryan Dorado, Maddie Haver, Maggie Farmer, Abby Pruns and Bethany Janson. Again, it takes a team to successfully host these events and a wonderful team we have. Thank you all for giving up your evening/afternoon and adjusting schedules to help us grow our school. – Thomala Walker, Admissions Director
