Open House: September 28, 2017
It was #LIT at Teachers Prep for its Back to School event on Thursday, September 28. Families gathered to meet their child's teachers and other school staff at the annual Open House that evening. If you missed it, then you also missed out on the waffle and chicken meal being served up by our peer leaders as well as a natural homemade juice whipped up by Ms. Palmer, who was not giving away her recipe. It was a fun filled event that included singing by our Assistant Principal, Ms. Backer and a meditation session for parents. There was a noticeable pleasant atmosphere that gave Principal Simon "a positive outlook for what this school year will bring." Some staff were excited that we made it on to the student's Snapchat video and Facebook Live feeds. It is night's like this that make our school special and we look forward to more events like it.

OneGoal I College Graduation. Period.
TPS has a slew of programs starting up this school year. We are proud to announce OneGoal as one of these programs. Under the advisory of Ms. Fundi, with the support of OneGoal staff, our 11th grade students will be getting a college ready experience unlike no other program available. Students begin their college exploration in the classroom and receive the support and advisory they need to:
- develop the skills that will help increase their GPA and college entrance exam scores, which in turn increases acceptance rates into more selective post-secondary schools.
- plan and sign up for important exams such as the PSAT and SAT
- complete the FAFSA form
- identify seven best-fit colleges.
- develop the non-cognitive skills and mindsets needed to graduate from college
- understand and put into practice OneGoal’s Leadership Principles: Ambition, Resourcefulness, Resilience, Professionalism, and Integrity
- apply to at least seven best-fit colleges
- enroll in a best-fit college
- accomplish academic, financial, and social Steps to Success
- enroll in the first day of sophomore year with the mastery of the skills, mindsets, and experience that will lead to college graduation
This is a three year program that will follow them through the start of their second year of college. For more information about OneGoal, please visit their website by clicking here.

Movie Night 10-30-17
E.G.O. sponsored their second movie night at TPS on 10-30-17 and it was a bigger success than the first! Keeping up with the Halloween theme, they featured the 2014 thriller 'Annabelle' and had everyone in chills. Those in attendance received a complimentary snack and beverage with their movie ticket purchase. In total 49 students attended the event. Principal Simon made a brief appearance, but quickly exited the room out of fear! E.G.O. members were satisfied with the turnout, but are eager to make their events bigger and better. They hope the next movie night will be shown in the gymnasium to give a real theater feel. Keep an eye out for future E.G.O. events on our school calendar. Thanks again to all of you who came out to support E.G.O.
