School Supplies

Teller’s School Supply eliminates the headache of school supply shopping by providing the items required for your student. Our amazing volunteers are able to use the large quantity purchasing power to get school supplies you need at a price that rivals even the large discount stores! No more shopping around for the best prices or standing in long lines wondering if you have everything you need plus a portion of each purchase goes to the PTA.

Supplies can be purchased at registration and will be delivered directly to your student’s classroom prior to the first day of school. PTA volunteers will have a list of supplies needed for each student with a price for us to purchase the list. Checks can be made out to Teller PTA and credit cards are also accepted.

MightyNest

You can purchase a subscription to receive a monthly item from the MightyFix (it’s only $10/month!), or you can shop from a ton of different sustainable, reusable, family-friendly supplies. You can help to protect our environment with reusable water bottles, lunch boxes, sandwich bags and more, while also raising funds for Teller! MightyNest will donate 15% of your purchase to our school!

ABC Fundraiser

Held in September of each year, the ABC Fundraiser is a chance for parents, relatives, neighbors and friends to get a head start on holiday shopping. Items for sale include wrapping paper, food items, plant bulbs, small gifts, gadgets, candies and more. As an added plus, the organizer of the fundraiser is a Colorado based company; Colorado products and companies are promoted in the sale. Teller PTA receives a percentage of the total value of the items sold and 100% of any cash donations. Students look forward to this fundraiser for the fuzzy toy pig offered as an incentive for top sellers.

Taste for Teller

A wine tasting and silent auction that brings the Teller community and the Congress Park neighborhood together. Participants must be 21+ years of age. The wine tasting is sponsored by Marczyk’s Fine Wines, and items for the silent auction are donated by parents. In past years, auction items have included tickets to sporting events, certificates to local restaurants, spa packages, weekend getaways, and the students’ favorite – sleepovers at Teller chaperoned by teachers and office staff. Wines are also available for order from Marczyk’s that night and a portion of the proceeds are donated back to Teller.

Tellerpalooza

A rock-concert fundraiser started in 2004 by music-loving Teller parents, the event has grown into the school’s funnest FUNdraiser. The all ages, family-friendly event is held at the iconic Bluebird Theater – right in the Teller neighborhood. Tellerpalooza shows what makes our school special. The event typically features five local bands, with exclusive performances from the Tiger Voices, Teller Band and Violins. Friends and family spill onto the street to grab a bit from the food truck or to get some fresh air and color the sidewalks with chalk. In addition to enjoying the bands, concert goers enjoy the bake sale, hair braiding/chalking, face paint and try their luck at the wall of wine.
