TPS First Day 2022!
Day one is in the books!! We have so much to celebrate as we welcome students back into the classroom. Thanks to the voter-approved bond measure, students at Downing and Skyline Elementary Schools started in their brand-new buildings. While Bryant’s students began school at a temporary site while construction begins on their building. Across the district, there were happy tears, high fives and lots of school spirit. Here’s to a great year, we are better together!
