Welcome T-K Parents and Families,

This is definitely a different start to the 2020-2021 school year, but it will still be great! It will be great because we have teachers who are super excited to be back working with students, even if it is through the computer for now. Our staff is ready to serve the needs of ALL students, and we look forward to continuing to work with your children and inspire excellence throughout the year. Every day we look for ways to inspire excellence in every child and to make a positive difference in their learning and social/emotional well-being, and that is no different in this COVID world. Thank you for entrusting your kids to us and for allowing us to partner with your family to be sure that learning happens every day in every way. 

We would like to encourage all families to be involved in your children’s education. We invite you to attend school and community events, parent-teacher conferences, and any other events we are able to offer at this time. Also, Temperance-Kutner has an extremely active Parent Teacher Club who helps to support co-curricular activities, athletic teams, student trips, and more. Though we are not sure what this year will look like entirely, we know that a working relationship with our families is key to student success. It is important that we work together to provide the best environment and greatest opportunities for our Trojan students. 

UPDATE DECEMBER 2020:  We are thrilled to have some of our students back on campus working on an In-Person Hybrid schedule. We realize that this schedule is not ideal, especially with only being able to offer AM/PM times and with limited days at this time, but we are looking forward to the days when we will at least have our AM/PM schedule four days per week starting mid-January. As for now, we continue to navigate uncharted waters and do everything possible to make learning accessible, fun, and successful for ALL students!


We Believe We Can, and We Will!
