Finally, our biggest community event and fundraiser of the year: the TCS annual Basketball Tournament! This year’s tournament will be held from Monday, February 22nd to Sunday, February 28th. The weekday games will run from 4:00 pm till 8:30 pm, and the weekend games begin at 9:00 am, running till 3:00 pm on Saturday and noon on Sunday. Our newly formed PTO met with the Friends of TCS earlier this month to talk about how we can work together and encourage class parents to become involved. We decided that each night of the tournament will be “dedicated” to a grade at Taos Charter School. Parents from that grade will be encouraged to donate volunteer time at the concession stands, the admission desk, or inside the gym helping with scoring or refereeing. At the end of the tournament, each class will receive $200 to spend on field trips or play equipment.
