Travis Heights Elementary School’s 6th Annual End of Year Celebration at Guero’s Taco Bar (Under the Oaks) is Tuesday, May 3rd from 5:30-8pm.
Come celebrate our remarkable neighborhood school in a Cinco de Mayo kind of way! We’ll have student performances from Ms. King’s music students and our very own Ballet Folklorico dance troupe starting at 6pm! Scott George and The Other Guy will be on stage at 7pm to fill the hour with great tunes.
Raffle prizes, taco bar, and beverages galore will be available for purchase*. A suggested donation of $5 goes to the Camp Champion Fund (read below for more information about Camp Champions). Hope to see our neighbors, friends, prospective families, alums, and current THES Thunderbirds there!
What is Camp Champions?
Camp Champions is based in Marble Falls, Texas and ranks as one of the best camps in the nation. As you may or may not know, our entire 5th grade heads off to Camp Champions every year with a crew of phenomenal THES staff/volunteers. The camp offers a 3-day/2-night life enriching experience that takes learning out of the school building and into nature.
A main focus of the trip is about building self-confidence, fostering leadership skills, and promoting teamwork, through outdoor sports/learning activities (archery, fishing bonfires/storytelling, insect/plant/start spotting, etc.) and challenging individual and teamwork activities (e.g., ropes courses). This is a once in a lifetime experience for many children. For more information about Camp Champions, visit www.campchampions.com.
Check out this a video put together by parent, Jim Canning about the THES kids time at Camp Champions.
*Guero’s will be donating 10% of sales from our purchases toward our Camp Champions funds. Other donations from this night, will allow ALL children from the soon-to-be 5th grade class an opportunity to attend Camp Champions, despite the cost, by providing partial/full scholarships to families who are experiencing financial hardship. The cost of this trip is $150 per child.
While this special trip is still months away for our soon to be 5th graders, giving time for many of us to save our pennies, it may be too costly for a number of families. That’s why we need your support. We are seeking 20 sponsors for the upcoming school year. Click here if you would like to sponsor a child. Please indicate Camp Champions Sponsorship with your donated amount. All donations of partial or full scholarships are tax deductible Questions? Contact us
Your generosity is very much appreciated!
