Friday November 1st is the next Smart-E Pants Day! Students bring $1 to wear pants or skirt of your choice, with a uniform top. These $1 donations go towards technology upgrades for our classrooms!
We've had lots of questions on what you can wear for Smart-E pants, so here's the skinny:
*Elementary can wear any kind of pants, shorts, or skirt (no sweats or lounge pants); middle school can wear any denim shorts, pants or skirts.
Skirts and shorts must still come to the students finger tips with arms at their side.
The new Timberwolves spiritwear store is up and running! The TPCA dress code now allows students to wear TPCA spiritwear any day of the week. Purchase t-shirts, long sleeve shirts, and hoodies here. Visit the spiritwear store

What are the funds used for?
With the funds we raise, the PTO is able to provide free events throughout the year to promote school community.

We also use funds raised for special projects, like water bottle filling stations, playground shade, or a new piano for the music room.
Why should I track my volunteer hours?
All volunteers will be entered in a monthly drawing for gift cards or other prizes! We also like to show how involved our parents and guardians are in our school.
