Wednesday Folder – November 4, 2015

Happy Wednesday Friends!

Travis Heights Art Trail – Volunteers Needed

The Travis Heights Art Trail is a grassroots art show, created by and for the artists of Austin. Each year, this city gem showcases some of the city’s longest practicing artists as they open up their homes and studios to the public. The first stop on the Art Trail features art from Travis Heights Elementary Students as well as hands-on art activities for kids.

Volunteer Need: We need 2-3 volunteers per 2 hour session to help preschool/elementary age kids with art activities. Location: 1419 Travis Heights Blvd, corner of Bonham Terrace (Note: NOT at the Elementary School; we are out on the front lawn of a private home.)

Amazing Food & Fun People!

Travis Heights Elementary School parents Molly Cain and her husband, locally renowned chef John Cain, would like to invite you to a casual but elegant dinner in their garden under the Live Oaks. This is event is in support of THES.

Enjoy a delicious, 3 course meal prepared by John himself, while having a fun, kid-free evening with neighbors and friends. Proceeds from this event will support the growth and development of the Dual Language program across all grades. We hope you will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity for current parents to celebrate our neighborhood school and for prospective parents to meet the community and learn more about it, all while supporting an excellent program.

Together, we can make the THES Dual Language program the role model and continued innovator for AISD. We look forward to seeing you there!
