 Reading Library for Heritage and Native Spanish Speakers

Help us make a difference for heritage and native Spanish-speaking students! For the first time, TCPS offers a class designed to meet Spanish-speaking students' instructional needs. But there's still work to be done. Many high school-age heritage and native speakers lack access to literature in their home language. With your donation, we can create a diverse and interesting reading library that will enhance their literacy skills and encourage a love of reading. Help us build a more equitable reading library and make TCPS a more equitable place for future generations of students! 

Leaders of Equity & Diversity Enrichment Program

Join us to support the new LEAD (Leaders of Equity and Diversity) enrichment program at St. Michaels Elementary School and St. Michaels Middle School! The cultural leadership program is designed for students with leadership skills and an interest in social studies. The program includes trips to Historically Black Colleges and Universities, field trips to the Reginald F Lewis Museum, evening events for students and families, such as Indian Heritage Night, and multicultural and diverse assemblies. Your donation will help us ensure that all students have equal opportunities to gain and celebrate cultural awareness of themselves and others.

6th Grade Math Manipulatives

Help us give Easton Middle and St. Michael's Middle School students a hands-on way to apply real-life situations to their math lessons! 6th-grade teachers wrote a grant requesting class sets of math manipulatives to help students increase their understanding, giving them a tactile learning modality and the opportunity to solve and show their answers in multiple ways. Manipulatives increase student engagement and promote mathematical conversations. Please donate today to help our teachers with additional tools to lay the foundation for success in higher-level math courses and increase students' confidence!

Career & Technical Education Outreach & Senior Recognition

Attention all supporters of Career & Technical Education! Join us to recognize and market our programs by supporting the CTE Department's Outreach and Senior Recognition Grant. Our proposed activities include:

  • Hosting a senior recognition banquet for CTE completers.
  • Conducting outreach to 5th and 8th-grade students through field trips to CTE classrooms.
  • Providing better support for senior capstone projects.
  • Purchasing CTE shirts for staff and ambassadors.

We hope to reach more families through these efforts, to inform and build excitement around CTE opportunities! 

Engineering Collaborative Workspace

We need your help to fund the Engineering Collaborative Workspace project! The current classroom setup is not conducive to the collaborative nature of an engineering class. With your donation, we can replace the fixed counters with tables that can be rearranged as needed for collaborative work. The requested tables are specifically designed for science classes and have a black top that can be written on with chalk, allowing students to plan and share ideas quickly and efficiently. 

Instruments for Easton Middle Band

 Help us provide more musical opportunities for students at Easton Middle School! This year, the band has over 160 students and needs basic instruments such as flutes, clarinets, and trumpets and repairs and overhauls of their tenor and bari-saxophones. Middle schoolers have used these instruments for over 20 years, and they need cleaning, rod and pad replacements, and key realignment. With more families struggling to make ends meet, the need for school-issued instruments is greater than ever.  We want to continue to support our students who are passionate about making music with their peers and contributing to the community!
