It is with pleasure that the TCS Parents’ Guild welcomes you to an exciting year at Trinity College School. We look forward to seeing our returning parents and would like to extend a warm welcome to new parents. We know that before long you too will feel comfortable and at home in our school community. As the parent of a TCS student, you are automatically a member of the TCS Parents’ Guild.
This is what the guild can do for you and your child:
- You will have an information network for resources
- You can keep up with the major events in your child’s school life
- It is a fun way to meet other parents
- Enhance your child’s TCS experience through volunteering
- Enjoy guild organized lunches, spa & golf days
If you would like to be added to our members list to receive informative, regular updates on social events, meeting reminders and minutes then please contact Lisa Baker, guild secretary, at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, email address, where you live and phone numbers (home and cell).
The guild was founded in 1902 with a mandate, “to complete the chapel and other interests of the School.” While the chapel has continued to hold priority, the guild has evolved over the years to reflect the contemporary needs of the School community. In May of 2015 we celebrated our 113th anniversary. In the coming years, we will continue to enrich the lives of TCS students by providing special touches which enhance their physical, social and general well-being.
Our funding comes from membership dues, donations and profits from such fundraising activities as:
- Our tuck shop, "The Bear Boutique"
- Bear Fair
- Poinsettia sales
- Hospitality canteen
- Birthday/care packages
- Exam packages
- A huge Valentine's Day celebration
Being service-oriented as well, other guild activities include decorating The Memorial Chapel for Thanksgiving and Christmas Carol Services and serving refreshments on Open House days.
Each year we have several guild meetings which are held at the School. Some members are extremely active because their geographical proximity to the School makes this possible; many other parents who are scattered around the globe lend their support through membership. Both are vital to the strength of our organization. If you, as the parent of a TCS student, would like to be actively involved in the TCS Parents’ Guild, please come to our scheduled meetings and be sure to fill in the Volunteer Opportunity Form.
