Happy Valentine’s Day!

Don’t forget, there is no school this Friday due to a DOI Day and Monday for President’s Day. Your child’s teacher is counting on you for Parent/Teacher Conferences on Monday—please sign up if you haven’t already!

I ♥️ THES Fundraiser—ends Today!

February 8 – 14

Thank you to all who have shown your support! We are so very grateful for all of the LOVE. Thursday marks the last day for our annual I Heart THES Fundraiser, so please consider a no-hassle donation. PTA volunteers will be accepting envelopes before and after school, or you can contribute online at www.travisheightselementary.com/donate.

Read to Succeed

Six Flags Six Hour reading club logs are due today to classroom teachers! You have until Monday to get them in if you forgot them. Duplicate copies will not be provided by the school, but you can download an extra copy, and find out more program details here. Students who read at least six hours will earn a free ticket to Six Flags this summer!

Gifted & Talented Testing

The window for Kinder-2nd grade Gifted & Talented (GT) testing is now closed. If you have a student that you believe possesses GT traits, please contact Mrs. Underwood so she can add them to the list for testing next year:  julie.underwood@austinisd.org

Spring Beautification

Saturday, February 23, 9am–12pm

We need anyone and everyone to come together to work on beautifying our school! Bring your children to help and anyone else (grandparents, relatives, neighbors) who enjoys gardening, carpentry, grounds clean-up, etc. It’s lots of fun and a great way to get to know other families. There will be free breakfast tacos and coffee! Whether you can stay one hour or the entire day, that’s fine by us. Please bring a water bottle, gloves, tools (wheelbarrows are always needed) if you have them.

Young Writers’ Workshop

Tuesday, February 26

Students in every grade will enjoy a special morning at THES focused on the many cool, creative ways writing is important in our lives, our work, and our world. Authors, musicians, poets, and business people volunteer their time to lead these workshops and give Thunderbirds a glimpse into careers and creative pursuits that involve writing. PreK–2nd grades will attend a fun and inspiring assembly on music by Neal Kassanoff of Groundwork Music Project and 3–5th graders will each attend two 50-minute writing workshops! Day–of volunteers needed, please email volunteers@travisheightselementary.com

Spring Pictures

Thursday, February 28

These pictures are more casual than formal fall photos. Order forms will NOT be going home prior to Picture Day. Instead, every student who has their picture taken will receive a package of pictures for parents to preview.  If you like what you see, keep the ones you want and send your payment back to school. If you don’t want them, please return them to the office. Please note: there are no retakes for Spring pictures!

Please register for next year ASAP!

Online registration for the 2019–20 school year is now open—please register online now for the fall!  Our goal is to have 100% of our families registered by March 30th. It is crucial that everyone register by end of March as this will impact our staffing and funding. We will have the computer lab open on February 18th during parent conferences for parents who need access to a computer or assistance in filling out the forms.

If you would like to opt out of paper fliers, please be sure to check the box on the front of our child’s Wednesday folder. Please help us reduce waste and save money!

Upcoming Events

    Ice Cream Social/Meet Your Teacher

    Time: 3:30 pm-5:30 pm

    Description:

    Annual Back-to-School Ice Cream Social: Find classroom assignments and meet your teacher at this annual event. Come by any time after 3:30 and stroll through your classroom. The cafeteria will have information about the school available and ice cream/non-allergen icy pops available to cool off from the heat. Please plan on stopping by the cafeteria with your child.

    The social is also a great time to bring school supplies to your classroom too! School supplies can be placed in a bag with your child’s name on it. Please do not place your child’s name on individual items/school supplies within the bag. If you cannot make the social, school supplies can be brought in the first week of school. Questions about supplies can also be posed to teachers at the social or during the first week of school as well, and purchased thereafter.
