Tesago Elementary School was the No. 1 ranked public elementary school in the Capital Region, according to the Albany Business Review's
ranking in the 2015 Schools Report. The rankings were compiled using
data for math and English test scores for grades three, four and five,
and science test scores in grade four from the 2013-14 school year.

Together Everyone Shares A Great Opportunity
We invite each and every Tesago family and teacher to join the PTA for the 2020-2021 school year. Membership is open to parents, grandparents, neighbors, friends and members of our community.
We hope you will consider renewing your membership or join the Tesago PTA for the first time this Fall. You don't have to attend meetings or even volunteer. Your membership dues alone help us provide programs and funding to all of our students. It's only $7 to join. Everyone is welcome to join and each member will be listed in the Tesago's PTA directory which is a wonderful resource to have on hand when you need to contact a fellow Tesago PTA parent.
The benefits of membership include:
Membership is being done online this year. There will not be a form sent out. To become a member, please visit https://tesagopta.memberhub.store/.

The normal School Banking Program is on hold while everybody adjusts to a new school routine.
However, CAP COM is continuing some of our Fall activities. Please share the items below and the attached flyers with your school community.
Fall PTA/PTO Cash Incentive: CAP COM continues to support your school by donating $5 for each new school banker enrolled at your school between September 1- November 30, 2020 (up to $300).
Tesago is again participating in the Box Tops for Education program and there is a new and improved program this year! This year our goal is to raise $1,000 for the wonderful programs for our children.
Box Tops is going digital with the new mobile app! The Box Tops app will scan your store receipt and automatically find products and instantly adds Box Tops to our school's earnings online. No clipping required! Download the app on the App Store or get it on Google Play!
1- Can I still submit the traditional Box Tops that are clipped to our school?
Traditional Box Tops clips are being phased out of production, but they may continue to be found on many products throughout the store. Unfortunately due to COVID-19, Box Tops may not physically be brought into the school.
2-What does the new digital Box Tops label look like on participating products?
Eventually the Box Tops program will become digital only. Participating brands are starting to change their packaging from a traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Top label. If you see this label below, use the new Box Tops app to scan your receipt. Box Tops are still worth 10 cents each for our school. The app will find participating products purchased at any store and instantly add cash to our school's earnings online.
