Teach Boosters

Charles E. Teach Elementary School is an open enrollment, public elementary school that offers an accelerated learning environment for 4th-6th grade students in the San Luis Coastal Unified School District.  (See also Great Schools profile.) 

Charles E. Teach Booster Club is a parent-led, not-for-profit organization (Federal Tax ID# 77-0384261) providing formative educational experiences for Teach School where students love learning and choose the challenge of accelerated academics.  Our desired outcome is that through these programs our students grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, and creatively and develop into future contributors to our diverse, global community.

These extraordinary opportunities of discovery and learning during overnight study trips to Catalina Island Marine Institute (6th), Yosemite (5th) and Camp Ocean Pines (4th), Innovation & Exploration Initiative projects, celebrating the arts (artist-in-residence, 6th grade play), day field trips, and more are estimated to cost $109,000 or approximately $600 per student. 

The ability for the Boosters to provide these programs is contingent upon the success of the Tiger Challenge donations and fundraisers during the school year.  Tiger Challenge donations is the Boosters' primary funding source for our programs, because traditional school-wide fundraisers (e.g., Genevieves, book fair) for our small school (6 classrooms) do not generate as much funding as those of larger schools.

We gratefully accept donations via check payable to "Teach Boosters" c/o Teach School at 145 Grand Ave, San Luis Obispo, CA 93405 or via online donations with 2.5% handling fee at checkout.

  • These donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law as Teach Boosters is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit Federal Tax ID# 77-0384261.  Consult your tax advisor for specific details.
  • Corporate Matching can double your donations! Does your employer match your donations to not-for-profits like us?  A partial list of companies that match can be found here or searchable here.  Find out from your Human Resources/ Benefits department!

Thank you for being a part of our wonderful Teach School community!  We -- especially our students -- are grateful for your volunteer time and financial support.  

We could not provide these formative educational experiences for our students without you.
