Name *
Class Parents
When a teacher has support, s/he is able to do a better job for her/his students: our students, our kids. The primary goal of class parents is to make every family at TCCS feel connected to our community. In addition to supporting and building community within the classroom, class parents also serve as communication liaisons between classroom families, the classroom teacher(s), and the PA. We are called upon to make things happen in the classroom, whether it’s acting as a resource to other parents, raising money, rallying volunteers, or assisting on a field trip
Social Events Committee
Social Events bring the TCCS community together as well as the TCCS fundraising and/or arts events that may have a social component.
Fundraising Committee
This committee serves as an outreach for gaining maximum potential fundraising participation for various events:
Grants Committee
Looking for all grant writers who can help with research of funding opportunities as well as writing grants on behalf of PA committees. We would like to shoot for the moon and land on the stars. This is a numbers game. The more we write the more we’ll get granted. This could be research and connections or it could be writing and editing.
Non Profit Committee
This committee will spearhead, apply and file for 501(c)(3) status on behalf of the TCCS PA Board. Becoming a non-profit will create many more fundraising opportunities for our PA.
