Wednesday Folder – April 12, 2017

No School THIS Friday!


Sleep in and enjoy your 3 day weekend!!

PTA meeting/K-1st Performance next week!

It’s a big one- We’ll be electing PTA officers and approving the budget for next year, so come if you can. Check out the flyer for details.

Principal’s Monthly Bulletin

Be sure to read the Principal’s Newsletter in the pdf below – there’s lots of important information in there.

We’re Still Looking for Leaders!

Especially needed are volunteers to organize T-shirt sales and run the ROCK store. See the attached flyer for descriptions or head to the volunteers page to see all our needs.

Keeping us Informed

Don’t you love how informative these e-folders are? And how easy it is to know what’s going on with all these new website features? We do too but it takes a lot of work! We’d love to split up some of the workload by creating a Communications Team. If you can share your skills in:

  • writing announcements
  • creating flyers
  • posting to social media
  • sending reminders
  • or tracking the communications calendar

we’d love to hear from you. Contact volunteers @ travisheightselementary.com.

We also need to give a HUGE Appreciation Pump! 💪! 💪! 💪! to Deb Lykins for all her hard work this year on redesigning our website and giving it so many amazing features that are helping us all to stay connected so easily!

(?? Awww… I promise I didn’t write that! Thanks Julie for the call out! 😘)

New Ways submit information to the PTA

This week we’ve added two new forms to the website. First if you have need to get reimbursed from the PTA for a school expense you incurred. You can now access the online reimbursement form to submit your information.

Do you have an announcement for a school event that needs to go on the website or the wednesday efolder? Now you can use the Announcement Submissions form to get your information where it needs to go.

“Poem in Your Pocket” Day

We will be celebrating “Poem in Your Pocket” day on Thursday, April 27, 2017.

It’s super easy to participate in the day.

  1. Students, write your own poem on an index card.
  2. Carry your “Pocket Poem” with you all day and read it out loud to at least five people.
  3. Ask each of your listeners to sign the back of your card.
  4. After you have five signatures on the back of your card, show it to Mrs. Underwood for a special “Poem in Your Pocket” day treat!

That’s all for this week! Happy Easter and Passover and have a fabulous 3 day weekend!!
