This March, the Timber Creek High School Foundation (TCHS Foundation) heats up our fundraising efforts with March Madness, our version of the classic basketball tournament. At Timber Creek, March Madness is a community effort to “Celebrate Smart” by raising funds needed by classroom teachers at our high school. During the entire month of March, students, parents, faculty and staff at Timber Creek work together to support the TCHS Foundation. Last year’s March Madness raised more than $20,000, which went back into the classrooms of participating teachers.
The Foundation’s previous fundraising initiatives have included renovation of the Performing Arts Center, including new carpet and a new sound system, renovation of the Media Center that included new carpet, paint, and a new projection screen, and extensive technology additions to classrooms and laboratories. The Foundation also purchased the electronic marquis at the school’s entrance to advertise school events and student/faculty accomplishments with the community, and is currently installing new benches and charging stations in the courtyard.
We need your help. Please consider helping Timber Creek classrooms by sending a donation with your child during the month of March. Please make checks out to the “Timber Creek Foundation,” and place them in an envelope. Students can bring donations to the teacher of their choice.
Another way you can contribute to March Madness is to provide in-kind donations of small gifts or gift cards as prizes for top fundraisers. Donations can be delivered to me in the Media Center, or to Colleen Hemann in the main office.
If you would prefer to make a donation via our Foundation PayPal online, please visit tchs.ocps.net and look for the Timber Creek Foundation section. If you would like the donation to apply to a particular teacher, please include that teacher’s name in the comments section of the PayPal payment page.
Thank you for your consideration. Feel free to contact me via telephone at 321-235-7800, or e-mail for more information at Patricia.firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to join the Timber Creek Foundation, we meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 6pm in the main office at Timber Creek.
