Steam Day planning is under way!

Hello and Happy 2019 Friends of Travis Heights Elementary School!

Last year we combined our Young Scientists Day and Young Artists Workshop into our first STEAM day, and it was a great success! We are beginning to plan for another amazing 2019 STEAM event at THES, and so we are reaching out to see if you or someone you know would like to be a presenter for STEAM DAY 2019.

The date is set for the morning of Tuesday, April 23.

The format: you facilitate two, 40-minute workshops in your assigned classroom. We will provide a catered lunch and great goody bag to show our true appreciation for sharing your skills and profession with our students…not to mention the satisfaction of contributing to the betterment of community! Our kiddos LOVE this dynamic day of learning from you!
Please let us know if you are able to participate, or if you have any questions. Also, feel free to forward this to others that you think would be a good fit to participate.

Thank you! Thunderbirds really rock!

Feel free to contact any of us with questions or direct leads,
