FIFTH GRADE ACTIVITIES
We need fifth grade parent help! If you did not turn in your form in the fall to be added to our email list and would like to be added please email Lisa Saward so we can include you on all future messages. We put on several events during the last week of school to celebrate our children’s last year at TES. We have parents who have volunteered to chair these events but we need some additional parent help on the day of the events. If you are available to help on May 6th in the early evening or June 16, 17, 20, 21 during the school day, please let us know. Contact Lisa Saward.
APEX FUN RUN
The APEX Fun Run is a month away and nearing quickly. The APEX Fun Run will help provide our kids with a leadership program that will run 2 weeks in the classroom leading up to the April 22 date of the race. It is one of TES Foundations’s biggest fundraisers for the school.
This year we are seeking out corporate sponsors within the Tierrasanta community that may want to make a tax deductible donation. TES is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. In addition the corporation can hang a business banner the day of the race that the company can supply. Do you own a company in the community or know of someone that does please have them contact Diane Chung for more information.
We look forward to having a great FUN Run and are eager to work with many of you in the community. If you would like to volunteer the day of the race please contact Diane Chung

We are looking for parents to join the committee to nominate candidates for the next PTO executive board. If you are interested in helping find TES parents and guardians who might be willing to become the next PTO President, Vice President, Secretary or Treasurer, please contact Amy Day.
NOON DUTY SUPERVISION NEEDED
Lunch supervision personnel are still needed at Tierrasanta Elementary! Do you live in the area and are available between the hours of 11:20 and 12:15 (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday)? If so, TES needs you! Help your school and make a little money at the same time. Starting pay is $11.19 per hour and entails supervising children during their lunch period (both on the playground and at the lunch tables). If you can work all 4 days per week great, if you can only work 2 days per week that will work too! If interested, please contact Janet Brooks in the front office. Thank you!
