Thanksgiving Pies for Staff

TESCA plans to continue our tradition of distributing pies to all staff prior to Thanksgiving.
These pies will all be secured through a commercial source. The primary source for this year’s pies is the fantastic Kimberly Mayer from Kim’s Bake Shop at the Wooden Nickel. She has developed a mouth-watering menu of pies this year and we are excited to partner with her for this event. Although Kim cannot accommodate specific dietary requests and all her crusts contain gluten, we will purchase alternatives from commercial sources for those who need them.
In addition to donating a big chunk of the proceeds from the staff pies back to TES, Kim’s Bake Shop is offering a special discount for TES families! You can order pies for your own family at a discount of 15% and the amount of the discount will go back to TES! 

To contribute towards the $1500 we need to raise to provide the Thanksgiving pies for staff, use this PayPal link and make a note that it is for the pie event. Thanks in advance for helping us let TES staff know how thankful we are for them!

Keep up with the number of pies funded by checking out our "pie chart" and help us get to 100%. TESCA has submitted the staff pre-order for all 60 pies. 

A message from Kimberly Mayer at Kim’s Bake Shop:
Hello TES fam!
My bake shop is once again partnering with our school to help send the TES team home with a freshly-baked pie for their holiday celebrations!
And just like we did last year, when you purchase any pies for a teacher or staff member (all listed at $25), we’ll be donating $10 per pie back to the school! In addition I’m offering a 15% off discount to any TES family who wants to order any pies, cakes or goodies for their own celebrations at home, and we’ll donate your 15% savings back to the school too. That way we’re helping the school raise funds, and everybody gets pie!
To place an order for yourself, just follow the link below to my online order menu and write “TES parent” in the Comments section when you order. The 15% off discount will automatically be applied to your order.
Thanks so much for considering making a pie donation to our awesome TES staff. It brings me great joy each year to bake fresh pies for them, and for so many of you in our local community.
Here’s the order link:

Volunteer Asks

Please find our current volunteer asks for TESCA outlined below:

One-Time Volunteers: Cocoa and Cider
Cocoa and Cider is coming up, a chance to connect socially before the winter break! We need a handful of volunteers to help with set-up, serving cocoa and cider, and breaking down when it is finished. Please consider pitching in and sign up at the link here: Cocoa and Cider Volunteers

One-Time Volunteers: Thanksgiving Pies
TESCA plans to continue our tradition of distributing pies to all staff prior to Thanksgiving. A few volunteers will need to be on hand to help unload, organize, and label the pies in the Maker space. We will need approximately 3 other volunteers on the delivery date. This will take approximately 1-1.5 hours. Contact Jen at for more information or to volunteer.
