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

Thunderbird Thrift Sale
Time: 8:00 am-12:00 pm

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 (firstname.lastname@example.org, 512-585-2708) or Anna Roth (email@example.com, 832-498-2398) with any questions or to schedule a donation drop-off.
