2018-2019 TCPS PTA Board and Open Committee Chair Positions!

It's not too early to start thinking about how to get more involved with the TCPS PTA next year! A position on the PTA Board is a great way to meet parents and TCPS staff, and make decisions to better the school experience for parents, teachers, and students!

 

All board positions are voted upon each year. We are particularly needing to fill our 2 Co-Vice President positions for next year: Co-Vice President (Volunteer Coordinator) and Co-Vice President (Digital Coordinator).

 

As a PTA Board Member you:

  • attend 2 meetings per month (Board Mtg and General PTA Mtg);  

  • are the point person for a small group of Committee Chairs; 

  • get the opportunity to participate in State and National PTA Conventions; 

  • and you get to play an important and active role in your student's educational experience which is invaluable!

As a Committee Chairperson you:

  • partner with other committee members to plan and put on events, activities, or services for the students and TCPS staff;

  • meet other parents who care about their student's educational experience;

  • build TCPS community!

So grab a friend and join the Board or become a Committee Chair! We need you! Your student needs you!

 

If you're interested in any PTA Board or committee positions please reach out to Stephanie Gettel, TCPS PTA President, for more information or to find out what's the best fit for you! Her email address is stephaniegettel@yahoo.com.

 

Staff Appreciation Week News!

We will be honoring the staff of TCPS during our annual Staff Appreciation Week celebration during the week of May 7-11.  We will be celebrating with a Hollywood theme this year!  "NOW PLAYING: Staff Appreciation Week - Celebrating the STARS of TCPS!"  

 

In addition to gifts and goodies that the students will bring in each day to their teachers, the PTA also provides meals and snacks that week.  The staff really look forward to this week every year, so please consider donating a food item or paper product to the meals we will be providing.  And look out for more details about the fun ways your student will be able to participate!  We love our TCPS Staff!

Opportunity To Raise Funds for TCPS!

An anonymous parent donor has proposed that they will match every dollar of stock you dontate up to $5000!  

 

Did you know that when you donate stock you've had for at least a year to charity, you can take a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock. And because you are donating stock rather than selling it, you don't have to pay capital gains tax.  And because the PTA is a qualified non-profit organization, they don't have to pay the capital gains tax either!  

 

If you have any questions please contact Nicole Alexander at nicole@unionactive.com or Stephanie Gettel at stephaniegettel@yahoo.com.

Remember to Re-Register to Volunteer!!

New WLWV District Volunteer Registration System!

With a new school year, comes a new and improved process for volunteer registration and sign-in. If you want to volunteer in any capacity at Trillium Creek then you need to register (or re-register if you are a returning volunteer)! 

 

 Simply visit http://www.helpcounter.net/wlwv and click Start to fill out your application. Your registration will be received at the district office where it will be processed.

 

Until your registration is processed, you won't be able to sign-in and volunteer at the school. This process could take 2-3 days to complete. When the processing is complete, you will be notified by email.

 

Please register to volunteer! We have many volunteer opportunities coming up, including Staff Appreciation and the Hoot n Scoot Fun Run in May !
