Welcome to Tesago Elementary School PTA

Together Everyone Shares A Great Opportunity


Welcome to Tesago's PTA home page!

We made it through the school year! 
The PTA board would like to thank everyone for their support during a challenging year. We look forward to getting back to hosting events next year.  
We welcome our new board for the 2021-2023 term, we wish them the best of luck. 

Here is the schedule for this week.
Mon  6/21 & Tues 6/22- regular school days
Wednesday 6/23- 1/2 day (AM K attends)
Thursday 6/24- 1/2 day- LAST DAY OF SCHOOL  (PM K attends) 


The Yearbooks have arrived!


Most yearbooks that were pre-ordered have been distributed. Check your email for an order confirmation from Jostens to confirm that a yearbook was ordered.  Please email the yearbook committee if your student has not received their pre-ordered yearbook.


We have a limited number of yearbooks available for purchase. First come, first serve. Yearbooks may be purchased for $30 cash. Please contact Heather Boltz at [email protected] to purchase a yearbook or with any questions. 


Capture the memories with Digital Yearbook Signing Pages!

One of the best parts about the yearbook experience is the notes and signatures from friends. Now, with Digital Yearbook Signing Pages, all students have the opportunity to take part in that tradition with a fun, free, interactive experience that results in a permanent keepsake.


It’s free to all students and is a great way to bring our school community together and remember the school year!


Check out this video to see how it works.  Get started today at yearbooksigning.jostens.com!



Have a great summer!

The benefits of membership include:

  • A complimentary directory of the names, phone numbers and addresses of other PTA members at Tesago
  • Occasional PTA member perks and discounts at our sponsored school events

Box Tops for Education

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!

FAQ

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.
