Each fall, the Thornton Creek Parent Group sponsors our Annual Appeal fundraiser to solicit and replenish these much relied upon funds. Today, we ask for your support. This year, we aim to raise $175,000 with 100% participation in support of TC. We need you to help us get there so Thornton Creek can deliver on its mission to engage students in academically rigorous exploration and discovery through expeditionary learning.

Why We Fundraise

Option schools like Thornton Creek require additional support to provide this level of exceptional learning. The resources deployed for teacher professional development, academic support (e.g. tutors and reading interventionist), supplemental specialist instruction beyond what the district provides (e.g. art, music, library), and our reinvigorated commitment to Expeditionary Learning (professional development for teachers) are made possible in part with contributions from our generous community. Simply put, Thornton Creek won’t be the school it is without your help and support.

Schools are human-powered endeavors, and keeping our programs intact requires significant spending on certificated staff and hourly assistants to support students who need it most. Here’s a breakdown of the TCPG budget for the current year.
