Programs we Support

 

It's not all fun and games...we support vital academic and enrichment programs to give our children the best possible educational opportunities.


Below are some of the resources and events the PTA pays for with membership dues and fundraising proceeds. Without the TMPTA and the tireless work of our volunteers, the school would not be able to offer these enrichment activities:


  • Brain Pop
  • Hands On Science Lab
  • Meet the Masters
  • Moby Max
  • Mystery Science
  • Team Kids
  • Technology Grants​

Jog-A-Thon

 

The Jog-a-Thon is our primary fundraiser and the source of most of our budget for the year. An ambitious fundraising goal, and entirely volunteer-run event, ensures the maximum amount of funds go to Trabuco Mesa's enrichment programs. 

 

If we reach our yearly fundraising goal with this event, we do not need to hold a second fundraiser later in the year.  

Watch for kick-off information in early October!
