The TJPTO is a not-for-profit organization made up of ALL TJ parents, guardians, and teachers, working to promote the welfare of children in the home, school, and community. Through fundraisers and volunteers, the PTO brings extra social and academic enrichment activities to the school.

 

 


 

 

Thanks to the collaboration of our Principal, Cristina Frazzano, our Teachers, and our Parents, the 2023-2024 school year will be filled with many wonderful programs and events.  Our teaching staff develop and implement these great programs for our students…. and our parents and the TJ community help bring them to life with fundraising and volunteers! The calendar of TJ School Programs & Events is included and updates are provided on TJPTO.org.

 

The TJ PTO operating budget for this school year is $20,000 (~$67 spending per student), consistent with previous years. An overview of program spending and fundraising is included.  Financial updates are provided at PTO Meetings and within weekly enewsletters.  Your participation in fundraising efforts is critical to making these programs happen! 

 

Parent involvement is as critical to our organization as fundraising! Please consider volunteering your time to support these wonderful programs and events.  Volunteer information and sign-ups can be found on TJPTO.org.

 

Looking forward to a great school year!
