The Tewksbury Education Foundation (TEF) is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization established to enhance and expand educational opportunities for more than 600 students in the two schools of the Tewksbury Township district.
The Barn Dance has been a marvelous community and school-wide tradition for two and a half decades! On Saturday, May 14th, join us as we “ReBoot” and also honor 25 community leaders who have made a lasting impact on TEF and our schools during the past quarter century. The Barn Dance is not only a TEF signature event, but is also Tewksbury’s biggest event of the year, and we are thrilled to be back! We invite you all - parents, administration, alumni and friends - to celebrate with us. We promise this will be an affair to remember, and we look forward to sharing the night as we recognize our students, staff, schools and all that we have accomplished together. This event serves as our largest fundraiser and is a wonderful opportunity to raise our glasses and dance the night away while raising funds to support curriculum-enriching programs and mini grants for our Tewksbury Township public schools. Contact event chair, Carrie Martinelli, below with questions or to volunteer.

Although we were unable to bring providers in-person, we managed to accomplish quite a bit and raise funds through exciting events and generous donations. In 2020-2021, we saw Astronomy Night, Show Some Love to a Teacher, a Holocaust Speaker, Kentucky Bourbon Tasting Event, and Mini Grants including a virtual field trip with a zookeeper for our remote 2nd graders and wind Instrument try-out kits for our 3rd graders.
