PARENT’S CHOICE – Voluntary Donations

WE NEED YOUR HELP to fund programs like Art Corps, Science Fair, Science Lab, Running Club, School Gardening, Classroom Grants and more.  ANY voluntary donation amount helps!  TES has over 400 students at TES, and if families could give just a voluntary donation of $20 per student we would reach our goal of $8,000 to fund Art Corps and help keep this program going. This is also the last week to get t-shirt(s) with your Parent’s Choice voluntary donation of $175 or more.  If you haven’t participated yet, please consider making a voluntary donation of any amount.  You can give your voluntary donation online with a credit card or your bank account through PayPal at or you can send a check or cash in to the TES Foundation. Pay Pal also has an option of setting up monthly payments too! We are very grateful to all the generous donors who have already given to our students. Thank you from all of the kids!

If you or your spouse/partner work for a company that has a matching donation program, please request the matching funds in order to double your own voluntary donation!  Several companies offer this as a benefit for their employees, and last year matching funds really made a difference.  Please email Martha at with any questions.
