Super Successful Book Fair!

Did you hear? Our Used Book Fair was a huge success, with over 900 books sold!
Your donated books helped feed new readers and help them create their own home libraries.
But wait there’s more…the money raised will help us purchase the next collection of Texas 2X2 Award Winners for our PK-2 and Texas Bluebonnet Award Nominees for 3rd-5th.
We’ve got a lovely book life cycle happening at Travis Heights, and we’re thankful for all of you that were a part of it!

    Location: Travis Heights Elementary School, 2010 Alameda Dr, Austin, TX 78704, USA

    Description:

    Please attend this special training at our school on Monday, April 29th, from 4-5:30PM with Isabel Guerrero of Austin Interfaith. Please RSVP to Colin Clark at sprinklerintherain@gmail.com or Isabel at isabelcg.iaf@gmail.com.

    Isabel will train us in the tried-and-true organizing principles and practices that our school community has used in years past to win our in-district charter and help families facing displacement.

    We will learn how to host "House Meetings," where we identify issues of concern and identify new leaders for our school, as well as how to organize campaigns to win on our issues.

    As our school population changes, and as families face a variety of challenges, including housing insecurity, language barriers, and deportation threats, this training is foundational to organizing ourselves for the best outcomes for our children, students, faculty and staff.
