The 2017-2018 school year is underway but at Toledo Public Schools, we're always happy to have new students join our TPS Proud family.

Parents and guardians are asked to download and fully complete these registration documents and bring them to the Student Data department at the TPS Educational Campus, 1609 N. Summit St., (419-671-0200):

Old West End Academy third graders were recently invited to a Book Tasting event so they could 'sample' great books across various genres.

The purpose behind the event - spearheaded by teachers Sheryl Pitsenbarger and Sandra Chittum - was to spark the reading interest of the students, who have a goal of reading 40 books each this school year.

Reflection on family engagement is a great way to understand strengths and challenges that can be used in developing a plan to create or enhance a family-friendly environment in all Toledo Public Schools.

That's why a committee has created a list of questions designed to get the input of families, community members and TPS employees about their experiences at TPS schools.

There's still time to register your students for the 2017-2018 school year.

Parents and guardians are asked to download and fully complete these registration documents and either bring them to the Student Data department at the TPS Educational Campus, 1609 N. Summit St., (419-671-0200) or drop them off at the school where their students are to attend. (There are staff members in the high schools now and all schools will be fully open on August 3).
