Wednesday Folder – December 2, 2015

Hola Thunderbirds!

Hope y’all had a fantastic Thanksgiving and are settling back into the routine. How nice to have had a week off! And now there is only 2 more weeks of school before Winter Break!

Tamalada is back!

Join us for the return of this annual THES tamale making event, Wed. Dec. 9th 3-6pm. All are welcome and no experience is required. There will be children’s activities too. Sign up with the form in your Wednesday Folder.


Cultural Festival 2015 is less than 2 weeks away!

Join us Saturday, Dec 12th, 10-noon, as we celebrate the wonderful diversity of Travis Heights. There will be cultural tables, performances, tamales for sale (from our very own Tamalada) and a Mercado with a variety of handmade items-a great chance to shop for holiday gifts! If you would like to donate knitted items to be sold at the Mercado (proceeds going to the school), please contact

If you can host a Cultural Table, or volunteer that day, forms are available in the office or you can sign up online:
