TBS Families: Thank you for supporting the One & Done Fundraiser

Thank you to the many families who donated.  We raised approximately $6, 300.00 – just under 50% of our $13,000.00 goal for the 2018-19 school year.

Remember: You can still turn in your One & Done form ANYTIME throughout the school year.    Money collected from One & Done helps fund programs like individual PTO-sponsored stipends to faculty and staff to off-set classroom costs, support for the TBS Musical, copy center, cultural programs, end-of-year grade level events, and equipment and building improvements.

Simply print out the attached form and send in with your student to school anytime.  Thank you for your support!

Thank you for Submitting Your Box Tops…Keep Them Coming in!
We submitted just under 3,000 Box Tops at the end of October, earning TBS $296.40! Keep on clipping and sending them in. Our next submission date is March 1st.  The Box Tops collection box will remain in the lobby area near the main office. Thank you!
Have a great week, TBS!
