Staff Gifts and Favorites List

Many factors may contribute to making it more difficult to coordinate dropping off a token of appreciation to teachers during the season of giving this year. Families may be limiting shopping trips, thinking ahead in hours or days rather than weeks, or not gotten close to finishing that to do list. To help reduce the stress at least a small amount this year, TESCA is coordinating an optional school wide collection for teacher and staff holiday gifts.
TESCA will be collecting funds from November 28th - December 12th via PayPal and splitting the funds raised across all the TES teachers and staff.  Any donation amount is appreciated. Gifts to teachers will be from TES Families as a whole community to honor that our TES teachers and staff have worked incredibly hard to make magic happen in this year. All teachers, administrators, and staff will receive a gift card.
Families may also give gifts directly to teachers or staff members, either in lieu of or in addition to a donation made through this activity.

Here is the link for TES Staff Favorites List for 2022-23
