Teacher Support


The PTA supports TJMS teachers and staff in many ways. We host Teacher/Staff Appreciation lunches during the year, mobilize parents to volunteer for pop-up opportunities when requested by teachers, and administer teacher grants to provide funding for classroom needs and instructional resources.

The TJMS PTA Teacher Mini-Grant Program provides discretionary funds to teachers to enhance the educational experience at the school. The funds are intended to cover areas not covered by existing budgetary allotments or dedicated funds. All teacher grants must be approved by Principal Boggan in advance before being presented to the PTA membership for approval by member vote.

To submit a grant request, teachers must download and use the TJMS PTA Teacher Mini-Grant Application (PDF).
