About Teach Boosters

WHO WE ARE

Teach Boosters is a parent-led, not-for-profit organization providing formative educational experiences for Teach School where students love learning and choose the challenge of accelerated academics.

Our desired outcome is that through these programs our students grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, and creatively and develop into future contributors to our diverse, global community.

All parents and legal guardians of current Teach students are members of Teach Boosters!  There are no forms to fill out and no membership fees.

Governance:  In accordance with the Bylaws, Board Officer & Member nominations are held by the May meeting and elections are held by the June meeting for terms effective July 1-June 30 of the following school year.

We invite you to attend our monthly Teach Boosters Board Meetings, volunteer at one of our many exciting events and share your ideas for the future of Teach School.

Teach Booster Board Meetings are held monthly on the 2nd Friday of every month from 9am-10:30am on Feb 10, Mar 10, Apr 10 (Monday evening) and May 12.  The schedule is subject to change.  Updates will be reflected in the Teach School calendar.  Past meetings were held 1:30pm-2:50pm on Sep 12, Oct 10, Nov 7, Dec 12 and Jan 9, 2017.

PROGRAMS

These extraordinary opportunities of discovery and learning during overnight study trips to Catalina Island Marine Institute (6th), Yosemite (5th) and Camp Ocean Pines (4th), Innovation & Exploration Initiative projects, celebrating the arts (artist-in-residence, 6th grade play), day field trips, and more are estimated to cost $110,000 for 2016-2017 or approximately $600 per student.
Last year, 93% of Teach School parents surveyed agree that these trips are worthwhile enrichment experiences for their children.










The ability for the Boosters to provide these programs at ~$110,000 annually is contingent upon the success of the Tiger Challenge donations and fundraisers during the school year.

SUPPORT

Teach Boosters is committed to providing the above programs for all our students.  The programs are funded by voluntary donations and fundraisers.  Boosters rely on Tiger Challenge donations as the primary funding source for the programs, because traditional school-wide fundraisers for our small school (6 classrooms) do not generate as much funding as those of larger schools.

We gratefully accept donations via check payable to "Teach Boosters" at Teach School office or via online donations at the Teach Booster store which has 2.5% handling fee to cover ecommerce/Paypal costs.

  • These donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law as Teach Boosters is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit Federal Tax ID# 77-0384261.  Consult your tax advisor for specific details.
  • Corporate Matching can double your donations! Does your employer match your donations to not-for-profits like us?  A partial list of companies that match can be found here or searchable here.  Find out from your Human Resources/ Benefits department!
We are a registered charity for donations and corporate matching on Benevity, GuideStar, PayPal Giving and Amazon Smile.

Other ways to support our school are listed here.

VOLUNTEERS 

The high level of parent involvement at Teach is one of the strengths of our school, and we are eager for  you join in the fun!   Your involvement helps Teach School make a profound, positive impact on our students as they grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, and creatively and as they develop into future contributors to our diverse, global community.

THANK YOU

Thank you for being a part of our wonderful Teach School community.  We -- especially our students -- are grateful for your volunteer time and financial support.  We could not provide these formative educational experiences for our students without you.
