It is done, and the TCSD Foundation extends a hearty thank you to this amazing community! Our students are great. Our schools are great. Our supporters are outstanding.

Please join us in our celebration. We made our $10,000 fundraising goal. Actually, we did better than that, receiving $12,500! It takes a great amount of determination, cooperation, and teamwork for this kind of success – something our student athletes experience every day. You helped us spread the word, you shared your financial support, and you cheered us on. Go T-burg!


KIDS DISCOVER THE TRAIL – Grade 2 Visits the Sciencenter!

KIDS DISCOVER THE TRAIL TRUMANSBURG – a program of the TCSD Foundation in collaboration with the Discovery Trail and the Trumansburg Central School District.

Sciencenter grouped

After reading “Energy Island” by Allan Drummond; Trumansburg’s Grade 2 traveled to the Sciencenter, where they explored climate change and energy through demonstration and hands-on activities that address the need for alternative energy sources. Each student received a copy of “Energy Island,” and we thank the Trumansburg Elementary PTO for funding the book, as well as our TCSD Foundation supporters.

The students divided up into groups, worked with partners to engineer their own windmills, and then they explored the rest of the Sciencenter. Enjoy the photos, and be sure to ask your students what they remember from their visit. Thank you to Mr. Baxendell and Ms. Dennis for letting us join in the fun!
