 The NFSI K12 Pathway community generously supports our TAs throughout the year in a number of ways.  All families are encouraged to reach out to all the TAs, particularly the TA working directly with your child’s grade.  You don’t need to be formally involved in the TA program to invite a TA over to your house for dinner, or invite them on an outing (TAs are always impressed by winter activities!).  This is a great way to hear your children interacting in Spanish and learn more about what your child is learning at school.

If you're not sure how to contact a TA you can reach out to us at

Invite a TA to spend time with your family!

All TAs are looking for new opportunities to connect with American families and experience American culture and traditions.  Some ideas include inviting a TA to join you for:

·        A sporting event (high school, college or professional)

·        An afternoon at the apple orchard, pumpkin patch or regional park

·        A weekend adventure

·        Dinner with your family

·        A trip to a local museum, theater production or musical performance

·        A fishing excursion

·        Ice skating, skiing or snow tubing



This year, we challenge all NFSI families to provide at least 2 rides to a TA during the academic year.  Most of our TAs come from urban communities and find it difficult to rely on families for their transportation in a suburban environment.  The only way our TAs get around to experience Minnesota culture and community is by asking our NFSI community members for transportation.  Most ride requests are local to the Woodbury and Cottage Grove area.

New ride requests are emailed out using SignupGenius.

As our TAs reside in K12 pathway members' homes. For privacy reasons, we require our volunteers to register via Signup Genius. If you don't already have an account, please click the button below to sign up! It takes only seconds!
