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.

    Save the date and save your stuff! The 2nd Annual Thunderbird Thrift will take place in the gym from 8am-noon. This fun event was created last year to present a great way for our community to shop second hand and also help raise money for our school. 

    Please donate GENTLY USED CLOTHES, TOYS, BOOKS, HOUSEWARES, and ELECTRONICS. Ask your friends, neighbors & family if they have donations for the sale – the more inventory we have, the better the sale!

    Shop the sale early, and stick around for BEAUTIFICATION DAY! Just 30 minutes of gardening and clean-up can make a huge difference in how our campus looks and feels for our children.  The whole family is welcome!
    Contact Maria Bergh (mebergh@gmail.com, 512-585-2708) or Anna Roth (anna.m.roth@gmail.com, 832-498-2398) with any questions or to schedule a donation drop-off.
