A huge thank you to everyone who donated to Teacher Treat days this year! The last Teacher Treat Day of the Year will be Friday, April 9th, and is sponsored by Santiago's. Stay tuned for next year's PTO-sponsored Teacher Treat Days.
Don't forget to enter your volunteer hours (remember that every $10 donated equals one volunteer hour!) to help us keep a yearly total and for a chance to win the rights to the PTO Volunteer of the Month reserved parking spot!
A written record of our volunteer participation may help us to receive grants. By taking time to enter your hours, you may be helping even more!
The first Friday of each month is 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!
*Elementary can wear any kind of pants, shorts, or skirt (no sweats or pj 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.
TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK

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
Log Volunteer Hours
Please help us keep an accurate yearly total, by logging your volunteer hours. Each month we we will do a drawing for the PTO parking space. Enter your hours to win the super convenient parking space for a month or a local gift card! Records of our excellent parent involvement may help us qualify for grants and also encourage community support. Thank you!
**All TPCA families are asked to volunteer 10 hours per year. If you are short on time, each $10 donation of food or supplies also counts as 1 hour of time. Thank you for your support of TPCA!!**

How do I get involved?
There's something for everyone! Every parent can and should have a hand in making this a great year for all our students. Sign up to receive email updates, follow the TPCA PTO Facebook group, click on a sign-up link above, attend a monthly meeting, or email us for more info or to share your ideas.
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. Additionally, money raised through the Trot and Silent Auction cover the cost of field trip transportation and help us reimburse teachers for some classroom supplies. 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 a gift card or special parking spot! We also like to show how involved our parents and guardians are in our school, and a written record of volunteer time and involvement is important to have when we are applying for educational and non-profit grants. Your hours are not published and are only used for these purposes. Thank you for taking time to log them!
