Easy Ways to Help
The TDS Parents’ Association organizes a number of ways for parents to support the school in the local community. Please support our school by utilizing the programs described below.
When Shopping for Groceries:
Box Tops for Education
View a list of products with BoxTops! Send in box tops to your child’s teacher. TDS earns ten cents for each box top.
When Eating at Restaurants:
Information about Dine-Outs is posted in the Parents’ Association section of the weekly newsletter. Enjoy a cooking-free evening with friends at a local restaurant, and a portion of what you spend is donated to TDS.
