Wednesday Folder – December 16, 2015

Happy Wednesday Thunderbirds!

Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate the diversity of Travis Heights Elementary at Cultural Festival on Saturday. It was such a fun morning. Let’s all give a big THES Appreciation pump (Pump! Pump! Pump!) to all the performers and families who hosted Cultural Tables. You all were awesome! Thank you too to all the volunteers who helped with Tamalada on Wednesday. Those tamales were delicious.
