Check This Out...How the iPads are being used to enhance instruction and student learning at TZ

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

Now is the time to ENROLL or RECONNECT your Kroger Plus Card to Help Earn FREE Dollars for TZ


For those that already have a Kroger account and a linked Kroger Plus Card


Note: Each December you will need to reconnect your Kroger Plus Card to the organization you wish to support. If you have already connected your Kroger Plus Card to TZ, we ask that you take a few minutes to reconnect your card to continue to support TZ.

Are you looking for an easy (no extra cost way) to HELP TZ?

If so...you may send in these to help TZ earn dollars for our school.

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 Brian Cox at briancox@gogreencastle.com or Jon Strube at 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.
