One Step Closer To Our Dream Library

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the library campaign so far and to the PTO fundraisers this year!
Not only will the PTO’s contributions support the operating expenses of the school for our kids (teacher development, supplies, etc.) but the PTO  made very generous donation toward our library as well. We could not express our gratitude enough to our TKS community and families for helping make our school stronger each year!
While the donations we’ve received so far for the library get us one big step closer to having a great library for our kids to read and study in, we’re not done yet.
Our initial estimates show that we’ll need somewhere between $40,000 - $50,000 to complete the project, so we STILL NEED YOUR HELP! We plan to share a high-level estimate with you soon so you can see the parts and pieces we need to build the new heart of our school.
In the meantime, please continue to share the Generosity online fundraising site with your family and friends. TKS Graduation ceremonies take place within two weeks – what a great graduation gift!

And thank you to these families for kicking off the online fundraising portion of our campaign:
The Culaks   The Kochs   The Spains   The Ullmans   The Valencias
When our community comes together we do great things!
