Thursday is Poem in Your Pocket Day!

It’s super easy to participate:

  • Students, write your own poem on an index card.
  • Carry your “Pocket Poem” with you all day and read it out loud to at least five people.
  • Ask each of your listeners to sign the back of your card.
  • 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!

Your Opinion Counts!

Join Us Thursday Night (April 27th or May 4th) to review our Title I Compact. As a community school we know that parents, teachers and students are all partners in the educational process. This is an opportunity to share thoughts about your role as a parent in our community school. Meetings start at 5:30 in the Cafeteria. Childcare will be provided. There will be hot dogs, bring a side to share!

Help Us Keep the Communications Flowing!

This is a quick and easy way to help ensure parents stay informed about what’s going on. We are looking for a volunteer regularly check the calendar and send reminders to event leaders that they need to prepare communications materials. It only takes about a half an hour each week but is essential to ensuring messages get to parents on time. If you can help, please contact volunteers@travisheightselementary.com

    Description:

    Please attend this special training at our school on Monday, April 29th, from 4-5:30PM with Isabel Guerrero of Austin Interfaith. Please RSVP to Colin Clark at sprinklerintherain@gmail.com or Isabel at isabelcg.iaf@gmail.com.

    Isabel will train us in the tried-and-true organizing principles and practices that our school community has used in years past to win our in-district charter and help families facing displacement.

    We will learn how to host "House Meetings," where we identify issues of concern and identify new leaders for our school, as well as how to organize campaigns to win on our issues.

    As our school population changes, and as families face a variety of challenges, including housing insecurity, language barriers, and deportation threats, this training is foundational to organizing ourselves for the best outcomes for our children, students, faculty and staff.
