The Tarleton Parents Association (TPA) is a 501c3 group dedicated to providing educational programing and events for Tarleton School Students. The TPA not only sponsors the Enrichment programs, but additional monthly events for the students and their families. In September, the TPA hosts a play-date to introduce the incoming students to each other and provide an opportunity to meet, mingle and play. Also, the TPA sponsors the annual Fall Family Festival, a seasonal event featuring outdoor activities such as pony rides and pumpkin painting. In November, we take the children and their families on a hayride through the local apple orchards. We wrap up the calendar year with our festival of lights, tree-lighting and children’s caroling in December. In the Spring, we hold several family fun events including a dance, a museum visit and art activities. The TPA holds its Annual Spring Fundraiser in April each year. All proceeds from the Spring Fundraiser benefit the children’s programing throughout the year.
