A huge thank you to all who volunteered with the PTO this year.  From cultural arts assemblies, school store, staff breakfasts, attending monthly PTO meetings, making casseroles, Trivia Night and much more, we all pulled together to provide many wonderful opportunities for the students and staff of TEMS.  Wishing you a relaxing summer break.  For those of you moving on to high school, best of luck and for those returning families, see you soon.  Enjoy!

TEMS is Recycling
USED Empty Binders from
Wednesday, June 13th - Friday, June 22nd 
If the binder is in good shape - please consider reusing it next year.  
A collection box will be available in the front entrance of school.
Please do not send in other types of office supplies like folders, notebooks, dividers, pencils, pens, or loose leaf paper.
The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into metals, fibers, and plastics. Metals are melted so they may be recycled. The fibers (such as paper or wood based products) are recycled or composted. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products. 
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please contact Heather Hill at 610-640-3805 or send her an e-mail at
For more on recycling visit TEMS Green Initiative link.

Welcoming Committee

The Welcoming committee would love for more parents to get involved! We match new TESD/TEMS parents with "veteran" TE parents whose kids have similar interests, i.e., where do you take piano lessons? If you speak a second language, etc.  
We could use your help.  All Welcome!  
Please email Claire at
or Angela Chapson at 
TEMS School Store Information

Traffic Safety Reminders

With just a few weeks of school left, TESD urges all parents to exercise traffic safety around schools.  At this time of year, more students walk to and from schools.  In addition, with the bridge closure on Old Lancaster Road, we are anticipating new traffic patterns and additional delays in the mornings and afternoons around TEMS.  Please be reminded to:  Drive slowly and carefully in school parking lots and nearby roads, and discuss pedestrian safety with your children (look both ways, don't "walk and text," use crosswalks, etc).  Thank you!
