Calling All Businesses! Do You Want To Sponsor Our Upcoming Hoot ‘n’ Scoot Fun Run?
Our student-driven Spring fundraiser is scheduled for Friday, May 17th, 2019. The Hoot ‘n’ Scoot marks the culmination of our year-long Forest Flyers-Marathon by May recess walk/run program, which is part of Trillium Creek’s “Owl Be Fit” health and wellness initiative. It is also one of the biggest fundraisers of the year for our school.
Sponsorships will support year-long activities including Art Literacy, Garden programs, 5th Grade Biz Town, technology, literature, student scholarships, assemblies, and activities like Field Day. We have a variety of sponsorship levels that are all tax-deductible.

Family Education Night on Social Media and Digital Life Citizenship!
TCPS PTA hosted a Digital Safety and Citizenship Family Workshop on April 11th. This workshop was made possible by the 2018 PTA Connected with Facebook Grant. TCPS PTA was 1 of 200 PTA’s nationally to be awarded this grant, amongst even more applicants!
Parents and students came together for an evening of learning and conversation. We hope to build on what we experienced and host this event again next year on our own.
Thank you to our PTA for applying for this grant and hosting this event! A huge thank you also goes out to our lead facilitator, Amanda Stein, and her co-facilitators, Scott Stein, Tawnya and Scott Landis, TCPS Librarian-Erica Hironimus, Brenna Burke, and the West Linn High School and National Honor Society students who were so super helpful! We hope the families who participated will keep this important conversation going. Keep talking to your kids about their role and responsibilities when using their tablet or mobile phone.
