This event is a highlight of Tesago’s spring season. It features many fun activities for the children, lots of food and fun with friends.
This sale promotes school spirit by giving families the opportunity to purchase Tesago/Shen sportswear. For those new to Tesago, the shirts offered in this sale are worn by students at the monthly BEST Assemblies (each grade level wears a different color t-shirt). In addition, Tesago/Shen logo items make great gifts for family and friends. The sale kicks off at the Tesago BBQ in September and order forms will be sent home early November.
The School Banking Program helps students get in the habit of saving money. Sponsored by CAP-COM, the program allows students to make deposits in the school, one morning a week.
Have your children join fellow Tesago students for fun-filled Movie Nights throughout the year. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Bring your pillows and blanket, enjoy dinner and a movie (pizza, popcorn, soda, bottled water and desserts are available for a small fee). Check the calendar throughout the year for upcoming Movie Nights!
Ice Cream Social
This event is held in the spring during the “Spring Walk-About,” a Tesago school event where the students invite their families and friends to their classrooms to see their work. Visitors are invited to the cafeteria to enjoy make-your-own ice cream sundaes at the Ice Cream Social organized by the PTA.
The Back-to-School BBQ is our first social event of the year. Tesago families are invited to join us for our annual BBQ featuring either a chicken, pulled pork sandwich, or hot dog dinner prepared at Tesago by Giffy’s Barbecue. After an action-packed summer and the busy start of a new school year, relax and visit with friends and enjoy a delicious barbecue.
Fall Family Fun Night / Monster Mash
This event offers an opportunity for your entire family to have a lot of “FUN.” You get to mingle with other Tesago families and meet many of your children’s newest classmates and friends. Have your goblins come dressed for Halloween, they play games and, if they dare, play in Tesago’s new haunted playground. The purpose of this event is to foster school spirit and a sense of community.
Staff Appreciation Week
This is a sweet and fun way for the children and Tesago families to thank our fabulous teachers and staff for all they do. Tokens of gratitude are presented throughout the entire week. Each student is asked to write a short thank you note to their teacher(s) and staff members on theme based cards which will be posted throughout the school for all to see. Families are asked to bring in food items for the staff to enjoy throughout the week and a small gift is given to each teacher as well.
Popcorn Days are in-school events for the kids. On Popcorn days they will receive popcorn during their lunchtime that is freshly popped by our expert PTA popcorn poppers.
These are just a few examples of what the PTA sponsors for Tesago students. Please look for more information during our Walk About in the fall and at other school events.
