❤️ Teacher Appreciation Week is just around the corner! ❤️

Our annual celebration of teachers and staff is May 1-5th. If you have some ideas of how we could show our staff how amazing we think they are, please contact Willow willowb @ gmail.com to join the planning team!

We have an awesome T-shirt design for next year!

Congratulations to design #3! What a fantastic illustration this is! So excited to wear this new shirt next year!

Now we just need a Coordinator to organize sales so we can all rock our new Thunderbird gear. The Sales Coordinator organizes volunteers to sell T-shirts and other merchandise, tracks inventory, and publicizes and arranges logistics for sales.
Time Commitment: 1 hour/week to prepare for sales (more during sales) primarily in August/September

If you can help, please contact volunteers @ travisheightselementary.com
