Families helping Families at TIS

Families Helping Families is a new group of TIS parents that provides organized support for other TIS families that are dealing with a life-altering event, major illness, a death in the family, etc.  The intention of this group is to step in and help with day to day responsibilities when our friends and their families are struggling.  This is not a school program but a parent group that will work within the school community.

Many of us know families at TIS that are going through a tough time, but often it is hard to figure out how to best help.  It is also hard for our friends to ask for help.  This group offers an opportunity for you to get involved in any way that works for you, whether that is cooking, picking up kids or donating funds.  This group also offers families an easy way to seek support in an organized fashion. 

Visit to see what we will provide, how we will do it, how we will fund it (we are not a non-profit but we definitely accept contributions:), 


Our first fundraiser is December 16th from 3-4:30pm at Yoyo Yogi in the Pearl.  Join me for a 90 minute Vinyasa flow (any level welcome) to support our fund. To reserve your mat space go to and donate ~   $20 suggested donation.   Space is limited! 

Thanks so much,

Megan Barnett,

(This program is independent of TIS; it is not a school program.)
