Tualatin Elementary Arts Foundation, or T.E.A.F., is our amazing after school arts program! Now in its 15th year, TEAF provides the opportunity for students to stay an extra hour after school to participate in a variety of fun, exciting, and enriching classes and activities. T.E.A.F. offers three terms per school year (Fall, Winter, and Spring) during which students can pick from a variety of classes - including the arts, athletics, performance, academic intervention, and STEM. Currently our program offers classes such as: Lego Robotics, gardening, marimba, drama club, hip hop, homework club, arts and crafts, Earth science, Black Bear T.V., chess, and more to students after school.
Students at Tualatin Elementary LOVE the T.E.A.F. program!
Tualatin Elementary Arts Foundation (T.E.A.F.) is a school enrichment program with emphasis on the arts and academics. It is designed to provide children with a variety of artistic, cultural, academic, recreational classes and clubs.
T.E.A.F. is an hour-long class, running from 2:45-3:45 p.m. T.E.A.F. begins with snack time from 2:30-2:40 in the cafeteria. At 2:40 p.m. T.E.A.F. teachers escort students from the cafeteria to their T.E.A.F. classrooms. At 3:40 p.m., students are escorted to the library for dismissal. Students must be checked out by their parent, or guardian, or wait for the T.E.A.F. bus to be transported home.
Snacks are available for students preceding class. Two snacks are made available, and students may choose one, or both, options. If your student has any dietary restrictions, or allergies, please make a note of it on the registration paperwork. If families would prefer, students are welcome to bring their own healthy snack from home, but all snacks must be nut-free.
We expect students to follow the same rules that are in place during the school day of being safe, kind and responsible in their after-school classes. Disciplinary procedure follows that which is outlined in the Student Handbook.
There is a bus provided for all students wishing to take a T.E.A.F. class. The route is specifically designed for T.E.A.F. students based upon their registration addresses – if your student needs to be dropped off at a childcare provider, please provide that address on your registration form. All addresses must be within the regular school boundary.
The T.E.A.F. Bus leaves Tualatin Elementary at 3:55 p.m. and may drop students off as late as 5 p.m. depending on the length of that day’s route. Please call Student Transportation of America at 503.372.4801 for issues after 4:30 p.m.
