Response to Annual Surveys

Lynn Ingegneri - Wednesday, May 27, 2015

Recently, TPCA sent out annual surveys to parents, students, and teachers. Thank you for your thoughtful responses. The information from the surveys, along with other internal measures, will help the board and staff define priorities for next year. The surveys included some positive, affirming responses and some great ideas for improvement. Some concerns and misperceptions were also noted. On behalf of the board of directors and administration, the accountability committee would like to address some of the concerns and misperceptions to ensure members of the TPCA community have accurate information.

Successes and Celebrations Third Quarter

Lynn Ingegneri - Monday, March 09, 2015

Dear Twin Peaks Charter Families, 

Thank you TPCA parents and community, we’ve come a long way in 18 years! TPCA was created by parents who were passionate about offering families a quality choice in education. As a result of their vision and the continued involvement of families today, our students have a unique educational opportunity that prepares them for college and successful lives. As we complete our third quarter in the 2014–15 school year, I’d like to share some of our successes and celebrations.

Message from Doug Bean

Lynn Ingegneri - Friday, September 12, 2014

I am very excited to be the Dean of Students at Twin Peaks. This is a great school with a strong tradition of excellence both in and out of the classroom. I am looking forward to helping our students continue to grow and apply the Six Pillars of Character (Responsibility, Respect, Citizenship, Fairness, Trustworthiness, and Caring) to all areas of their lives. Most importantly, I want to inspire them—as they say Monday mornings in the Six Pillars Pledge—to be the best that they can be.

I also get to work with Facilities. We are making great improvements to the school to enhance the educational process by finishing out the East Campus second level classrooms as well as adding athletic fields on our north side and updating the existing facility’s security. We are in an incredible place right now at Twin Peaks; it is a great time to be a Timberwolf!

Service Learning Hours

Lynn Ingegneri - Thursday, August 28, 2014

Did you know that your high school student needs to earn a minimum of 100 service learning hours for graduation from TPCA? It is highly recommended that they earn 25 hours each year of high school, and not wait until their senior year to fulfill the 100-hour requirement.

Please check your student's hours on Infinite Campus and inform Mrs. West when adjustments need to be made. Bring in documentation or pick up an SLH log at the high school office to record your time. If you or your student needs ideas on how to earn SLH, consider the following:

Help in the elementary library at TPCA

Childcare for PTO meetings

The OUR Center

Round Pantry Food Bank

Humane Society

Habitat for Humanity (must be 16 for a build site; they also have a thrift store to volunteer in)
