Join the TBS PTO Board for 2018-2019!

The TBS PTO Executive Board is looking for 5th grade parents to team up and be a part of our Executive board next year! These are the positions we are looking to fill: President, Treasurer, and VP Website/Marketing/PR.

Please consider joining the team and helping out our fabulous school! Ideally, all positions are held by a 5th and 6thgrade parent. We meet once a month and, depending on position, only a couple of hours per month are needed.

President – it’s not as difficult and time consuming as it may seem, and a great way to get to know the staff and teachers at TBS. Current Co-Presidents are available to help with transition and management through the year.

Treasurer – knowledge of quick book is very helpful! With our One & Done fundraiser – this job is much more ‘low key’ than RBS/PGS.

VP Website – knowledge of WordPress is very helpful. Great job for a working parent – work from home and help maintain our awesome website!!

Directory – help us introduce Konstella to TBS, and get our directory out paper free!

Contact us with any questions about interest and positions details!

Join the Banks family (Jane played by Leah Cuyler, Michael played by Kai Logan, Mr. Banks played by William Nusom, and Mrs. Banks played by Sydney Caso) as they encounter adventure after fun-filled adventure with their curious new nanny, Mary Poppins, as well as chimney sweep Bert (played by Brendan Harris). Adapted especially for young performers, this musical includes favorite Sherman brothers songs such as “A Spoonful of Sugar,” “Feed the Birds,” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” as well as wonderful new songs by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe. With colorful characters and an irresistible score, Mary Poppins JR. is sure to be a crowd-pleaser for all ages!
