A special grade wide treat will be distributed Friday. Key chains will also be distributed to each child who had a donation made in their name.
There is still time to donate if you feel moved to do so – we still need another $5000 to meet our $30,000 goal. You can drop a check in the PTA mailbox, located in the administration office, or go to www.travisheightselementary.com/donate
