Staff Holiday Celebration -- Volunteer Opportunities

Every year the parent community at TIS rallies together to throw a wonderful holiday party for our teachers and staff. It’s our way of thanking them for their hard work, dedication, and love for our children. This year’s party will be on Saturday, December 3rd, 7:00-10:00 p.m. at Tom and Karla Nutt’s home in SE Portland.

Since this event is sponsored entirely by the parent community, we are relying on you for help. Here are ways you can contribute:

1. Serve at the party – it is an incredibly fun evening and being a server is the only way a parent can attend the party. (Servers arrive at 6:00 p.m. and help clean up after.)
2. Create a homemade appetizer or dessert for the party – we need only finger foods this year that are easily passed on a serving tray

3. Donate beverages – wine and non-alcoholic beverages are needed
4. Donate cash – this helps us buy items that are not donated

The holiday party is a wonderful evening that the staff and faculty look forward to every year, and is made possible by the generosity of our parent community. Thanks in advance for your support!
