Dear STES Families and Friends,
Now, more than ever, we’re so grateful and thankful for the community that surrounds St. Thomas Episcopal School with support and love! At a time when a lot of things seem uncertain, we find encouragement and comfort knowing that you care about our school, our children, and our teachers!
Whether you are brand new to the school or sending your youngest child through STES, we can all agree that there are extras that make St. Thomas special. The cost of these are not all covered by monthly tuition. They come from our vibrant community of parents, grandparents, and friends ready and willing to support our school by donating to the Tiger Fund!
A current family shares WHY they give to the Tiger Fund. Our goal for the 2020 Annual Tiger Fund Fund is 100% participation from each Tiger Family to raise $15,000. What can we accomplish as a community, giving what we all can to support this school and beyond.
Our family chooses to give to the STES Tiger Fund each year. We trust the leaders and staff to be good stewards of the resources they have, which looks like stretching every dollar and getting the most out of the supplies and assets at their disposal. We agree with the school’s mission and vision by sending our son to STES, and by contributing what we can to the Tiger Fund, we’re like their cheerleaders, saying, “Yes! Go! Keep up the great work!” Specifically, we also contribute to the STES Tiger Fund because we want students and teachers to have access to all the resources they need. We want STES to be able to continue to recruit and maintain talented, servant-hearted teachers and assistants. We also recognize that other STES families gave before us which provided the equipment and tools that our son enjoys today. Our desire is to continue that legacy for the students that will follow us. Finally, we simply want to give back, beyond the cost of tuition, out of sincere appreciation for the investment STES has made in our son during these formative preschool years.
