Telstar Middle and High School staff are working on a project for the district called 'A Portrait of a Graduate'. The high school is in the middle of their accreditation process, and through that schools need to have a Portrait that they use as a filter for programming, philosophy, and wants for our students. A big piece of this process is soliciting feedback from our community. District Staff and students have done similar surveys, but now we are looking for the input from our families and our community members who care about our district and our educational offerings for students. This information will be used to craft a vision and plan for our district going forward in what we want and can expect for skills, abilities and experiences for our students up and through graduation from Telstar High School. It is a brief Survey Monkey survey to fill out, we would appreciate your feedback! Here is the link: final version of the community survey If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. The survey will only be open until Wednesday, October 13th at 10am. Thank you! Mark

On behalf of the Telstar All Sports Boosters I am reaching out. We recently took on the Football Boosters/Snack Shack. Our community is very excited to have Football again and we want to support it anyway we can. That being said, we need volunteers. We need volunteers to donate food and time to run our snack shack during games. This season the high school only has 3 home games. The snack shack in the past has made hand-cut fries, burgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese, crock pot items, baked goods and beverages. We need people to set up/cook/take down from about an hour before games until the game ends. We recommend working in 1-2 hour shifts. Many families and community members come to our games and are there for 3-4 hours. Offering food is a must, however we cannot offer food if we do not have the volunteers to help. Keep in mind all money we make goes back to the students and athletes. In the past we have been able to purchase batting nets, water bubblers around the school, provide lunches for away games, donate money towards uniforms, give t-shirts for Athletes of the Month and we also put on a Sport Banquet for Senior Athletes each year as well as plaques for athletes. There is a home football game this Saturday the 11th. We are looking for volunteers/donations for our limited menu until we get more volunteers. Please let me know if you can donate an item or your time. You can email me at email@example.com Thank you, Koral Fraser
