We were delighted to get this email:
" Dear PTO, 

I wanted to express my sincere gratitude for all of the wonderful things you do for the teachers at TCGIS. We are so very, very appreciative!

Wishing you all the best for the holidays!"

Did You Know?

O ur Yearbook committee needs help! They're in need of some new equipment. 
We (the PTO) are looking for a few cameras or cash to help buy used cameras.

Do you have a DSLR sitting around that could be put to better use?
Do you have some money you could spare for our yearbook?

Frau Brask wants to teach the kids how to properly use a DSLR, how to correctly use cloud storage, and how to safely distribute photos (even what to share and when.)

Right now, the committee relies on parents and staff to provide pictures for the yearbook. Just think how much better it could be if we could get a few cameras into the hands of the kids that are right there every day. 

You can message the PTO if you have any questions or email  tcgispto@gmail.com

Thank you so much!

Special thanks to Tony Radecki, parent of a fourth and second grader. We have been lucky to have his creative input in many of our marketing materials this year, especially his help with this year's Maskenball. Thanks Tony!!
