TPCA PTO

*** PTO Special Report! ***

Our new water bottle filling stations have been installed in the school! Thanks to everyone who purchased items in our spring online auction to fund these water stations!

We'd like to say a HUGE thank you to BJ Alps and Alps Contracting! Thanks to Bj's very generous donation of free installation for our water stations, we were able to use the money raised to purchase FOUR stations instead of three!! Be sure to call Alps Contracting at 303-264-9112 for help with your next contracting project. We'd also like to thank Leslie George for coordinating the installation and connecting us with BJ.

Students and staff are already enjoying the bottle fillers and just one station filled over 100 water bottles in the first day! These stations will save time, reduce germs, and and reduce waste, as students reuse and refill their bottles easily.

^^ Bj and crew install four water stations at TPCA on Friday, 9/13.

Every student will get a school shirt and have fun on the day of the run!

Thank you for helping raise money to fill in our funding gaps!

<-- Here's this year's schedule! Parents are welcome and encouraged to run or cheer on our students on 9/27!

The Box Top program is switching to paperless, so clip and send those little guys in while we can, and watch for coming details about the new Box Tops program!

Smart-E Pants

Friday October 4th 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.

Spiritwear Store

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

PTO FAQ

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, join the parent 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 gift cards or other prizes! We also like to show how involved our parents and guardians are in our school.
