The TES Foundation – Parents, teachers and the community
working together for the children of Tierrasanta Elementary School!
On behalf of the TES Foundation, welcome to our 2017-2018 school year! We would like to thank you for your support and involvement in your child’s education. Parents, staff and administration working together brings a well rounded educational experience to our TES students. This partnership is vital to the success of TES and our children!
This week marks the start of our “Fall Fund Drive,” formerly called “Parent’s Choice.” In the parent/community satisfaction survey the school gave last spring, only 34% of you said you would like to see the Parent’s Choice Fall catalog sales continue.
Well, we heard you loud and clear and are eliminating the catalog sales and are renaming our number one fundraiser to the “Fall Fund Drive.”
The Fall Fund Drive supports every child at Tierrasanta Elementary and every donation is tax deductible. By donating to the TES Foundation you help provide the following for your child:
- Art Corps art classes
- Spanish Instruction (Spanish materials for those already in the Spanish Immersion Program)
- P.E. classes every other week led by YMCA instructors (new this year!)
- Daily lunchtime activities led by YMCA instructors (new this year!)
- Gardens Program
- Grant money for every classroom teacher (extra funding for science)
- Specialized assemblies and field trips
- School beautification
- And much more!!!
Our goal this year is for 50% participation.
Yes, we know – it is a big, hairy, and audacious goal – but we believe we can do it! We have a huge range of donors, and everything helps. We’d just love to have you as a donor at any level. If it needs to be a small donation, then give small, but give. (If it doesn’t need to be small, then by all means, give big!)
Write us a check, fill out this form: Fall Fund Drive Form and drop it off at the school office or send it back in your child’s Monday Folder
