TZ Fall Fundraiser--August 16-28
Students brought home the fall fundraiser packets today. Please return the packet if you choose not to participate. This fundraiser is an order now and pay when items are delivered. Items will be available for parents to pick up during parent-teacher conference week, Oct. 9-12.
One of the roles of the TZ PTO is to provide support to the students and staff of Tzouanakis Intermediate School through fund raising. The TZ PTO provides many different opportunities for families to help support these efforts. The TZ PTO certainly appreciates any support that the TZ families and community may provide, however, we don't expect families to participate in all of the different opportunities. The TZ PTO tries to provided different options that would appeal to different people. There is always the option to give a direct donation to the PTO, as well. Some of the TZ PTO initiatives include:
- Box Tops for Education--Send in All Year
- TZ Night at Local Restaurants--Eat Dinner & Earn Dollars for TZ
- Fall Fundraiser--Aug. 16-28--Cheese/Sausage/Candles/Trash Bags & More
- Spirit Wear--Sale Begins Soon
- SCRIP Gift Cards--If you buy gift cards...this is the fund raiser for you. No extra cost for you, but TZ earns dollars.--November/December
- Kroger Community Rewards--No Cost to Parent--Just link your Kroger Plus Card to TZ to help TZ earn dollars. (See Trailblazer or TZ Webpage (PTO Link) for more information.)
- Book Fairs--November & March
- Santa Shop--December
- Spring Fundraiser--March
- Puttin' on the Hits--April
The TZ PTO also has the option for parents that would like to just donate and not participate in any of the fundraising opportunities.
Again, we appreciate any support you may be able to provide, whether that is with your volunteering an event or participating the different fund raising efforts.
Volunteer in the Classroom, Eat Lunch, or Field Trip--Need Background Check On File--Good for One Year
At TZ we appreciate parents/guardians that would like to volunteer to assist in the classrooms and/or go on field trips. As a part of any volunteer activity, we must have a cleared background check on file for each person wanting to assist here at school or accompany a class on a field trip. New this year, we will require anyone going beyond the office that will have any interaction with students to have a cleared background check on file. Also new this year for all GCSC schools, a background check expires at the end of the school year, and a new background check will need to be completed at the start of the new school year.
I wanted to take time to clarify the limited/volunteer background checks. These background checks are free to our volunteers. A limited/volunteer background check is only good for one calendar year. If a volunteer wishes to continue volunteering after one year, they must submit a new application.
A link to the form that needs to be completed and turned in to the TZ office is below. You may also come by the school to complete the form. We do need to have a copy of your driver’s license to process the request.
Again, we appreciate your willingness to volunteer.
