The PTO hosted a Fall Activity Night on Oct. 21, which was a success on many levels.
"Brandi Little, the PTO president, made this event possible with the support of several PTO volunteers, including Stacey Parente, Erica Cove, many room parents and other parents of current and former TVES students," said Principal Kris Lindsay.
Lindsay, along with several staff members, including Rose Angeloni, Dave Lacroix, Sheila Roberti, Elyse Mortensen, Joe Amodio, Lauren Trinkaus, also attended this event and offered assistance as needed.
The price of admission was one non-perishable food item and with generous donations, TVES collected more than 700 items which were all donated to the .
"It was a wonderful event," said Little. "It's not surprising at all that our TVES community came though in a big way."
The event also serves as a fundraiser that helps the PTO support student activities and events throughout the year. More than $1,200 was raised through the PTO's basket raffle.
Students enjoyed music thanks to Anthony Esposito, who was the event's DJ, and a haunted house set up by John and Shelly Leone in the music room, which was the "hit of the evening," according to Little.
"John and Shelly are parents of former TVES students, which makes their participation even more special," said Lindsay. "The event was very successful, and everyone had a great time."
