Fundraising News and Opportunities
We invite all families to become a member of the Trillium Creek PTA. A $15 membership allows you to vote on the yearly budget and have a voice in all meetings. The goal of the PTA is to fund programs and equipment for students that they would not experience without our PTA's help.
Last year TCPS PTA was able to:
Purchase $35,000 in technology including 60 Chrome books
Provide each teacher with a $200 stipend to purchase classroom supplies
Fund 3 Art Literacy projects for the entire student body
Fund TIME For Kids-weekly periodical of current events used in classrooms to support reading and comprehension
Fund IXL membership for each student-website/app for Math fluency
Sponsor Harevest Happenings, Pizza Bingo, and other family fun events
Fund 5th Grade Biz Town
Hoot n' Scoot Fun Run!
Last year's Hoot n' Scoot Fun Run raised over $26,000. Thank you to students and families for supporting our programs! We were able to put this money towards grade-level based books, technology, and headphones for all students. This year's Hoot n Scoot will be Friday, May 17th, 2019. We will use donations towards year-round PTA events and activities, plus Artist and Author Residencies, field trips for students, and Garden Literacy. We also hope to put donations towards enhancing and extending the forest trail to make it a 1/4 mile path creating a safe-route to school to students.
Ways to Get Involved in Raising Funds for TCPS and TCPS PTA!
The goal of the TCPS Annual Fund is to directly support the PTA programs without having to participate in traditional school fundraising (ie. selling gift wrap, cookie dough, etc). We ask for a recommended one-time per year $125 per student donation to the Annual Fund at the beginning of the school year. The only other fundraisers throughout the school year are the student-led Hoot n' Scoot Fun Run and the Adult Social. Please consider the Annual Fund and donate HERE.
