TPMS PTA and DIfference Makers Auction!

Help us make a difference for our students by bidding on these wondeful items!

TPMS PTA supports our students through provided enrichment for students and support for teachers. We are working with our student service organization, Difference Makers, raising money together for the benefit of our students. Thank you for your support!

It has been especially during COVID 19, and we need your support to make TPMS and it's students continue to be supported by the PTA.

We hope you will bid on many items and tune in to our student/staff talent show. Find links at

You can also make a direct donation through our website:

Proceeds go to support the many programs of the PTA (mini grants, arts enrichment, school mosaics, clubs, learning incentives, 6th grade picnic, and more) and of our student service group Difference Makers (TPMS food pantry, student service projects, snow angels, DM convention, and more). Thank you!

Where does the money go? Into teachers and kids of course! Here are a few things PTA (and this auction) support:

Teacher ideas for learning incentives through our mini grants program
Music instrument repair
Gorgeous school mosaics and experience for students to work with the artist
Arts and cultural enrichment for Outdoor Ed

Copier costs for additional teacher support
and so much more!

All the best,


Gretchen Weigel Doughty, PTA Pres '19-20 and Auction Organizer
