We still need your help! Donate to TSMS!

Dear TSMS Families,

I would like to thank all of the families who responded to my most recent letter. Since my last email we have been able to raise $6,000 more towards our goal and this will give us some breathing space. For those of you who have still not had a chance to give, there are still a number of trips that will be touch and go. As many of you have already heard from your children, these funds have paid for valuable and exciting educational  experiences outside of the school walls. NYC Center for Space, Camp Ramapo, American Museum of Natural History, Constitution Works (mock trials), Ballet Hispanico, Lion King, To Kill a Mockingbird, to name a few were all paid for by PTA funds.


In order to be able to fund these trips I am asking that the remaining Non-Title I families who have not yet donated this year to please contribute by April 1st so we can plan our trips for the rest of the year.  

(A Non-Title I family is one who makes over $30,000).


While we are asking each non-Title 1 family to contribute $550 this school year, any amount you are able to give will help. (The only gift too small is no gift at all!)  If you feel your family can donate an even larger amount to this effort, we would very much appreciate it.

Please make a donation online (via this link at Donate to TSMS PTA) or via check made out to Tompkins Square Middle School PTA.”  All donations are tax deductible.


Thank you for being part of our community and thank you for supporting our vision to make TSMS an equitable and just school.
