March Madness Fundraiser 2019  


Are you ready for TES March Madness?  Starting March 11th, TES will officially be in the race to crown the Class Champion. We’re bringing a new format to the coin collection this year and keeping our favorite spirit days, friendly competition between classes, online sports-themed silent auction and an ice cream social to really bring out TES’ March Madness.

From March 11th-15th, we are asking students to bring in coins, cash, check in a provided plastic “basket” (aka: container) each day.  A friendly competition between classes based on the highest total participation will end with teachers vs. students’ basketball game! All donations will go toward  the TES PE program.

All donating will occur daily by the students bringing their coin “basket” to class and you will receive daily communications participation standings. By Friday afternoon, March 15, the class that has the highest participation with win the teachers vs. students’ basketball game!
