School Supplies
Would you be interested in being able to buy all of your child’s school supplies online in one easy to order kit? It could happen! There are many companies who provide this type of service. We need a volunteer to research the options and work with the school/PTA on selecting one that would work best for our school. If you are interested in helping with this project, please contact volunteers@travisheightselementary.com

Fundraising Team 💰
Are you interested in supporting the innovative educational programs at Travis Heights? Consider joining the fundraising team. Volunteers are needed to help with the annual PTA fundraiser in February. Please contact fundraising@travisheightselementary.com for more information.

Upcoming Events

  • Aug 18
    Ice Cream Social/Meet Your Teacher

    Time: 3:30 pm-5:30 pm

    Description:

    Annual Back-to-School Ice Cream Social: Find classroom assignments and meet your teacher at this annual event. Come by any time after 3:30 and stroll through your classroom. The cafeteria will have information about the school available and ice cream/non-allergen icy pops available to cool off from the heat. Please plan on stopping by the cafeteria with your child.

    The social is also a great time to bring school supplies to your classroom too! School supplies can be placed in a bag with your child’s name on it. Please do not place your child’s name on individual items/school supplies within the bag. If you cannot make the social, school supplies can be brought in the first week of school. Questions about supplies can also be posed to teachers at the social or during the first week of school as well, and purchased thereafter.

    Bienvenidos Thunderbirds! Please stop by the cafeteria after dropping off your new and returning Thunderbirds and enjoy a nice refreshment with others.

Hope to see you there : )
