We are still looking for a few more volunteers, if interested please email Shell Smith

Parent’s Choice Fundraiser packets were sent home with students in Monday folders on September 28th. If you are choosing to participate through a voluntary donation, you can donate online with a credit card or your bank account through PayPal (set up a monthly payment) at The PTO can also take your contributions by check or cash (envelopes provided with your package). Parents can choose to do a voluntary donation or place catalog orders through Signature Fundraising with family and friends (or even choose to do both) help to finance PTO funded programs such as Art Corps, Classroom/Library Grants, Science Fair, Science Lab, Playground-to Plate (Gardens), Running Club, and more.  Just a reminder that if you are voluntarily choosing to fundraise through the Signature Fundraising catalog, order forms and payment are due Monday, October 12th. Please turn in your forms to your student’s teacher or to the PTO. Please contact Claudette Steinhauer with any questions about Signature Fundraising. Thank you for supporting the students at TES and their school programs! Thank you for supporting TES students.

The Playground to Plate/TES Garden program is responsible for all the wonderful gardens on the TES school grounds. Every student at TES will receive gardening instruction from our volunteers at least once a month. The garden program is always in need of volunteers and also accepts donations of gardening supplies but is especially in need of gardening soil. The Gardens is also in desperate need of volunteers to help with watering on Monday and Friday. Please contact Kristina Hepburn if you can be of assistance for either day. A garden program leader will help watering volunteers and them what needs to be watered.
