    Each semester of the academic year, TPS - in partnership with community educators and organizations - offers a variety of extra curricular enrichment opportunities, such as language instruction, instrument instruction, Girl Scouts, and more. The offerings are different each semester, and we always post information as soon as we have it available. Please consult the list below to see current classes. Please note - these experiences are offered by the individuals listed in the materials; they are not offered directly by TPS except where stated. If you are interested in the possibility of offering an extracurricular program, please contact Ms. Kristin to share your thinking.
