As part of our celebration, we are asking each student to make a collection of 100 things, such as 100 buttons, 100 pennies, 100 paper clips, 100 pompoms, etc. Be sure that the collection is of the same item. Bring them in a zip lock bag with your child’s name on it by February 21st.

Everything we do on the 100th day will involve the number 100 and we need your help sending in snacks. We would greatly appreciate any food donations or volunteer help you can provide us for this activity. Please sign up online using the following link:

A Message from the PTO

Hello Trevvett Tiger Parents, Grandparents & Guardians,

We appreciate all the support we received from your signing up for classroom events and parties at Back to School Night in September, however, we would like to try a new system to streamline the communication.  We ask you to “forget” what you signed up for in regards to the Valentine’s Party and to use the following Sign-Up Genius instead. This way, you know if you are the one bringing a specific item.

Every classroom is represented. Scroll to find your teacher (in alphabetical order), then sign up for what you’d like to donate to the party or to volunteer in the classroom.

All food items must be store bought and peanut-free. Number of students will be different for each class based on enrollment. Please check with your child’s teacher for an accurate student number. 

Thank you for all your support in everything we do!

Your Trevvett Tigers PTO
