Mission Statement for School? Yes. For family? Hmm.

What I love about this article is that “family” gets raised to the level of any other important organization or community. As we at TPS seek to reaffirm our mission, so too, can parents do so with their children. Each year at Grandparents” Day, I implore our Grandparents to tell their grandchildren their stories. This last year at TPS, we have had many of our alums tell their stories. What a great way to create connection and a sense of something larger than themselves for our students!
