Wednesday Folder – April 23, 2014

Hello Thunderbirds!

We had a great turn out last week for the promotional video we are making for THES. Thank you to everyone who shared your stories with us! I am so excited to see how the video turns out. I know it will be awesome. Today we are doing a little catch up and sending out some info from last week too because I was so focused on volunteering on the video last Wednesday that I completely forgot to send out the efolder. Sorry!

As you probably know STAAR tests are happening this week. We are sending thoughts and well wishes to all those kiddos and teachers. Good luck guys!

This Friday after working so hard on the tests the 3rd – 5th graders get to blow off some steam at Family Fun and Fitness Day! Whoop! Whoop! Details in the fliers below. Be sure to read it to see what your grade level is assigned to bring. It’s always a great time to run around and play with the kids. Take some photos and send them to communications @ travisheightselementary . com and we will make a gallery of the day online.

Next week on May 1 is the Kinder/First Grade performance and PTA meeting. Don’t miss it!

Have a great Wednesday!!
