Parents and guardians of Toledo Public Schools are being asked to fill out a Parent Survey so the district can collect parent perceptions related to a number of key topics.

Those topics include engagement, possible barriers to engagement and the overall culture of their children's school. It is critical to gather this feedback in order to provide a learning environment that respects a culturally-diverse community.

The survey results will determine what resources parents might need to better support their students' academic success and what obstacles that may impact their participation. The information will be used as a key driver as the district works to align programs and resources.

In addition to the link on the district’s website, parents and guardians can fill out the Parent Survey by texting @pxtps to 35134 - the survey can be taken on any texting device. The survey can also be taken using a QR code. Finally, there will be some paper versions available but it is hopeful as many people as possible will use one of the electronic versions to reduce the need to manually enter the data.

Bowsher High School sophomore Jayla Perryman did such a great job in the We Are TPS Proud video we released a couple of weeks ago (check it out on our YouTube channel if you missed it) that Dr. Durant decided to surprise her with a couple of gifts today. Here's a little video. #tpsproud #discovertps

Dennis Hopson, ex-NBA player and TPS Proud graduate of Bowsher High School, admits he can be picky.

So it’s doubly impressive when he praises the recent work that was done on his truck by seniors in the Waite High School automotive collision program. The two-year program, taking during a student’s junior and senior years, currently has about 30 students.

What started as an animated movie is now a musical.

This weekend, high school students at Bowsher are bringing Shrek to the stage.

"We're trying to bring our own kind of taste on it," said Nick Perry, a High School Senior who played Shrek. "We don't want to be like the musical or the movie. We want to bring our own kind of flavor to the actual musical."

You'll see all the fairytale characters from the original movie, such as the Gingerbread Man, Dragon and Donkey.

The teenagers at Bowsher say they're up to the challenge of pulling off the show.

"There have been tears," says Senior Ava Witson who plays Princess Fiona. "There has been sweat and tears, but they're always there to support you. So, I think we're definitely ready for this weekend."

Shrek The Musical has one final performance at Bowsher. It's today, Sunday, March 26, 2017 at 2:00. All tickets are $10.00.

When Kevin Jewell, a 2007 TPS Proud graduate of Bowsher High School, signs emails, he puts the word Sensei before his name.

Behind that simple word is a lot of hard work and effort that has made Mr. Jewell a force to be reckoned with in martial arts tournaments.
