Fifth Grade Parents: We Need You!  End-of-Year Field Day is Coming!
Fifth Grade Field Day is a fun way to celebrate the year, and see your student and their peers in action at school before summer is underway.  The PTO is looking for two volunteers to take the lead in coordinating this event.  It would involve working with the teachers to schedule the events of the day, lead set-up and take down, recruit volunteers to run events and make sure everything runs smoothly.  The date for this event will be determined shortly. Both committee chairs and committee members are needed.   If you’re interested, please contact Jesse Aguilar and/or Amy Alamar at jesaguilar@att.net 

Sixth Grade Parents: End-of-Year Social Date is Set: June 6th.  Please Volunteer!
This year, the 6th Grade Social will be at TBS on June 6th. With the change in ownership at Farmington Farms, we are not able to hold this much anticipated event there this year but…we are hoping with the help of many to make this a celebration to remember!!!

We are looking for creative and energetic people to transform the school into a FUN ZONE!!! We have lots of ideas and need your help! Are you interested in chairing one of these committees?

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!

Have a great week!

Your TBS PTO Executive Board
