Wednesday Folder – December 9, 2015

Hey Thunderbirds!

Are you ready to make some tamales? Because…

Tamalada is tonight!

Join us for the return of this Travis Heights holiday tradition! We will be making Tamales from 3-6pm in the Cafeteria. Never made Tamales before? No problem! This is a great place to learn while spending time with others in your school community. There will be activities for the children too, so bring the whole family and join the fun.

Then, be sure to come back Saturday, Dec. 12th for the…

Cultural Festival!

From 10am -noon we will be celebrating the diversity that makes up our school community. At the festival you will be able to:

  • Enjoy performances by the Choir, Ballet Folklorico and Korean Martial arts.
  • Visit tables representing more than 10 cultures.
  • Do some holiday shopping at the Mercado where there will be a variety of crafts and other items for sale.
  • Buy Tamales made at the Tamalada! (12/doz., while supplies last)

Cultural Festival is always a lot of fun so be sure not to miss it!
