Fundraiser Note:

Students will bring home packets today (4-6-16) for the Yankee Candle Fundrasier. Sale is April 6-18. See attached flyer for more information. You may also order online. Money should be collected at the time of taking the order. Checks should be made out to TZ PTO.


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.


The TZ PTO also has the option for parents that would like to just donate and not participate in any of the fundraising opportunities.


Students will bring home the candle packets today. Please return the packet if you choose not to participate.


Again, we appreciate any support you may or have been able to provide, whether that is with your volunteering at an event or participating in the different fund raising efforts.

Thank You DePauw University!

Thank you to DePauw University for donating very nice used tables for use in our TZ art studio. Mrs. Frank is thrilled to have a more appropriate setting for her art students. We are so appreciative of the donation, the delivery, and moving of the tables. We are so blessed to have a great community partner.

Volunteer in the Classroom or Field Trip--Need Background Check On File--Good for One Year

Greetings TZ Parents/Guardians!

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.

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.


Mr. Strube

We are looking for a few good men to volunteer their time at TZ.

Men can play an important role in the lives of our students. Please consider volunteering an hour of your time each month to help students, and support TZ. We are looking for volunteers to help welcome students as they start their day, provide classroom support, and help with special events and spirit days. If you are willing to help, please fill out the form below. If you have questions, please contact Jim Ensley at jim.ensley@gmail.com or jstrube@greencastle.k12.in.us. Any men interested in volunteering would need to have a current background check on file. Please request a background check form from the TZ office or you may go to printable forms on the TZ webpage to print your own form.
