You’re a superstar, yes, that’s what you are, you know it


🎶 Come on, [birds]
Let your body move to the music
Hey, hey, hey
Come on, [birds]
Let your body go with the flow
You know you can do it… 🎶

This Friday the 3rd through 5th grade thunderbirds will rock the evening afternoon away at the ☘ ShamRock Dance ☘.

$5 will get you an entry ticket, one drink and 2 cookies. Bring extra moolah for the photobooth, nachos, and popcorn. All funds raised will help fund the 4th grade field trip to The Alamo. The party starts at 4 p.m. and is over at 6 p.m. Tickets on sale in advance or at the door. (4th graders don’t forget your water and cookie donations!)

So grab your friends and get out on the dance floor! 🎶

PTA Rally Day was a Success!

Thank you to those who were able to come out and raise your voices in support of public education. Even if you weren’t able to make it to the capitol, you can still support the effort. Check out the Austin PTA Advocacy page (acptaadvocacy.org) where every Monday they post a letter you can send to state representatives to encourage them to support better funding for AISD.

Thank you, Beautification helpers!
