Community Impact - TEF Gives A+ Effort!
My Big Day has had the opportunity to creatively connect with the Thompson Education Foundation for the past couple of years. We have worked to build engaging events and fundraisers, and we also create, curate, and maintain their social media marketing.
Thompson Education Foundation works closely with the Thompson School District and community partners to help improve students’ lives as well as recognize the importance of the treasured schools’ staff, teachers and principals.
“Thompson Education Foundation (TEF) enhances educational opportunities for students and educators in Thompson School District (TSD). TEF removes barriers and supports experiences that students need to more deeply engage in their academic environment.” - TEF’s Website
