More on ReadyGen

ReadyGen helps connect reading and writing every day. At the heart of ReadyGen is the reciprocity between reading and writing. Students write to sources and cite evidence, developing close reading habits. They write in different modes, including Informative, Narrative, and Opinion writing. The writing process guides students with a clear approach.

69th Annual Chili Supper & Silent Auction

The Big T PTA would like to thank all who attended this year’s Chili Supper and Silent Auction. We had well over 600 guests and made over $20,000! This is the most ever raised at this event and we cannot thank you all enough! A special thanks to those volunteers who put countless hours into making this happen. Without you, this event would not exist. Thank you all again and we are so excited to be able to put those funds right back into our incredible school!


November PTA Meeting: Our November PTA meeting will be Tuesday, November 19th at 6pm at the Big T Library. We will provide a pizza dinner to thank all of our volunteers for their hard work during the Chili Supper! Don’t miss our last meeting of the year as we’ll celebrate a successful fundraiser and talk about all the upcoming events for 2020! Daycare will be provided.

The VIP Parking Spot: As a reminder, please do not park in the VIP Parking Spot that was auctioned off at this year’s Chili Supper and Silent Auction. The winning family made a generous bid to have the right to park in the spot for the year. Please leave the spot empty if you are not the winning family, even if it is a quick pick up or drop off. Unfortunately, the family has had to park elsewhere as someone had parked in their spot. If you would like to park there, please attend next year’s silent auction and it could be yours! Thank you!
