Research shows that if a student doesn't read during the summer, they can lose reading and vocabulary skill. Unfortunately, this loss tends to build up summer after summer, so that by the time this student reaches middle school they can be two years behind their classmates in reading and learning skills.
To combat this problem, TES has started a Summer Reading Program! Click on the link for details and a special challenge by Mr. Poell. Turn the form in to your teacher for a treat!
At the March 11 meeting of the Board of Education, HTK Architects presented a PowerPoint with preliminary information on the elementary construction project. The presentation includes an initial budget, a variety of architectural drawings, and interior designs, among other things.
Since we are still very early in the project this information is preliminary at best. The designs will no doubt be updated over time as various factors affect the project.
The district publishes two different types of calendar each year:
An academic calendar, approved by the Board of Education.
A 16-page Athletics and Activities Calendar, designed primarily for parents and patrons, contains the school-year schedule as well as athletic events, school activities, meetings, and a variety of other information.
Printed copies of these calendars are available at the District Administrative Center and in the school buildings.
This online calendar is updated as changes occur; it will always be more accurate than the printed version.
The calendar for the upcoming academic year was approved at the February 11, 2013 Board of Education meeting.
The district is excited to be able to offer the option to pay online for enrollment, student nutrition, transportation, and other fees, all in one transaction!. We now use E-Funds, which links directly to Skyward in real time, so balances will always be current. Feel free to use the Online User Guide to make setting up your account as easy as possible. Of course we take cash or checks as well.

At their September meeting, the Board of Education approved new policies and procedures for requesting district facilities.
A Facility Use Packet has been developed to help patrons with the proper forms, contact information, and billing procedures.
If you currently use, or plan to use, district facilities, please take a look at the packet to help insure that the proper procedures are being followed. Feel free to print the packet so all the information is readily available.
To reserve a district facility:
- Call or visit the scheduling coordinator of the facility you wish to request. For TES, call Carlie Puhr at 913-845-2290. For TMS, call Mark Altman at 845-2627. For THS, (except the Chieftain Room) call Brent Smith at 845-3042. For the Chieftain Room, call Julie Bernard at 845-2654. They will be able to tell you if the facility is available when you need it.
- Once you have determined that the facility is available, fill out the Facility Request form and get a signature from the scheduling coordinator or administrator at the appropriate building.
- Send the completed and signed form, and insurance waiver if required, to Larry Easter at the District Administrative Center. Fees will be assessed and you will be contacted about payment to secure the facility.
