Our Mission

The mission of the Tolland Education Foundation (TEF) is to inspire – and fund – innovative, creative learning experiences in Tolland Public Schools that enrich academics and build life skills for our youngest to our oldest students of all abilities.

Our Goals

The Tolland Education Foundation (TEF) seeks to sustain its 15+ year track record of being a consistent resource for the Tolland Public Schools’ superintendent, principals, teachers, paraprofessionals and staff members. Through the generosity of local residents and businesses, TEF is able to ‘show up’ for them when their unique ideas to provide ‘life skill’ lessons to students surpass their funds.

Who Benefits

Our youngest to our oldest students of all abilities, of course! And when your school system is strong and builds life skills for Tolland’s youngest generation, the community as a whole grows stronger, too!

Tolland Education Foundation was pleased to present a Grant to Lauren D’Agata, 2nd Grade teacher at Birch Grove school last week! Ms. D’Agata, along with Sarah Hayes seen here on the left and another Birch Grove 2nd Grade teacher, are implementing the Secret Stories program with their students. This program gives second graders the chance to read and learn the stories, and then act them out for the first graders and kindergartners, so all Birch Grove students get to enjoy the stories! It’s a fantastic program that TEF is proud to support. Thank you, Ms D’Agata! ... See MoreSee Less
