It’s all smiles in the Little Theatre as students and community members come together to celebrate newly reclassified fluent English speakers during the annual TPMS English Language Development Reclassification Ceremony. To celebrate their success, reclassified students receive a certificate of achievement and a congratulatory gift from businesses around the Poway area. This occasion is a perennial symbol of the hard work and dedication to academics found in our students and their families.

This year, seven 8th grade students from Leslie Fisher's RAM class used Arduino coding technology to solve real-world problems of their choosing. On Thursday, May 25, 2017, they presented their final projects at the PUSD CTE Department's first annual "CTE Expo", held at Petco Headquarters in Rancho Bernardo. The student projects were a Parkinson's tremor sensor (Ian Hoerr), a dirt bike fuel sensor (Tanner Castle and Tanner Spohn), an electric motor that can be mounted to any wheelchair (Ben Langer-Weida), a Monster can piano (Ellie Grismer and Haley Phillips), and a VEX sorting robot (Amayah Shinholster).

It was wonderful to have Dr. Kelly Burke attend this prestigious recognition ceremony for our schools!
