A registered non-profit dedicated to providing Enrichment Programs for the TK-8th students of Trinidad Elementary School. We support the school's exceptional Art and Music programs as well as many other special projects, such as Photography & Gardening.
TSEF is run entirely by volunteers and we welcome parent participation. We generally meet on the first Tuesday of every month. Please contact the Trinidad School front office to confirm meeting times.
TSEF is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to funding enrichment activities for the students of Trinidad School.
The Trinidad School Education Foundation (TSEF) partners with Trinidad School to fund the school’s art, music, drama, photography, and organic gardening programs. We also fund other projects designed to enrich the experience of all students of the school’s diverse student body. While some of the activities we fund are electives, such as photography and drama, TSEF’s fundraising helps support an accomplished artist in residence full time to teach art to all grades. In addition to teaching music twice a week to grades TK through 8th, the school’s music teacher provides electives like steel drum band, percussion, and band lessons before and after school. The successful organic gardening program provides fresh produce for student lunches. TSEF also provides one-time funding for teacher requests, such as the five wooden picnic tables we recently purchased so that classes can learn outside in good weather or the score board we purchased for the gymnasium. We also provide stipends to all the teachers at the beginning of the school year.
