This is an important meeting to learn about and discuss the future and direction of the Dual Language Program at THES. Please don’t miss it!

Childcare will be provided.

Drink healthy for your school!

Go to JuiceLand by this Saturday – Jan. 31, buy an Atomic Fireball, (remember 50% of the profits from this drink go to THES) take a picture of yourself drinking it and go to our Facebook page and post it in the comments of this post so everyone knows you support THES!

This drink is awesome – it tastes just like the candy it’s named after but in a healthy smoothie form! Make money for your school and drink deliciousness – Win! Win!

 

Free Thermometer

Get your free thermometer before the offer ends!

Our school has been chosen for a cutting edge flu-fighting program called FLUency! The thermometer plugs into your smart phone and is controlled 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!

You can order your cookies before and after school, in the front foyer, on Thursday and Friday. You can also order by contacting our Troop Leader Alicia Lyn Kasprzak or email me.
