Welcome Back Thunderbirds!!

Travis Heights Elementary School

Wednesday Folder – January 21, 2015

Happy Wednesday Thunderbirds!!

It’s another full folder today, lots of stuff happening in our school community.

Free Thermometer

Some of you may have noticed a brochure in the efolder last week for a free thermometer. This week the brochure is also in the paper folder and it’s a pretty cool little item.

Our school has been chosen for a cutting edge flu-fighting program called FLUency! The thermometer plugs into your smart phone and is controled by a free app called the Kinsa Smart Health Tracker. The thermometer is fast, accurate and simple to use, and the app tracks illnesses over time, helping users diagnose and treat more effectively. And by connecting all thermometer users in our school, we’ll be able to see aggregated, anonymous information that will help us know what is “going around” our campus.

If you download the app to your smartphone you will receive a FREE smartphone thermometer (also available on Amazon or at the Apple store for $30) in the mail!

Learn more in the attached brochure or visit the Travis Heights FLUency website.

Girl Scout Cookies!

This year is the first year (since I’ve been here) that THES has had their own Daisy Scout Troop and guess what?

It’s Cookie Time!!!

You can order your cookies before and after school on the next two Thursday and Fridays. You can also order by contacting our Troop Leader Alicia Lyn Kasprzak or email me (I’ve got a little scout eager to sell cookies. ;) )

75th Anniversay Picnic

The date for the school-wide celebration has been set and planning is underway. It sounds like it is going to be an amazing event! We need your help to make sure this event runs smoothly and has a large turnout so that we can really honor the 75 year history of our school. For more information read the flier below and contact Julie Ulrich to volunteer and or with any questions you may have.

Drink healthy for your school!

Don’t forget to swing by Juiceland and pick up an Atomic Fireball (I can vouch for their tastiness!!) During the month of January 50% of the profits from all purchases of Atomic Fireball smoothies goes to THES!
