Prospective parents should bring a photo ID and are welcome to bring their child.

HOLIDAY COOKIES AT MAÑANA BENEFITING THES
Now through the end of December, South Congress Hotel will donate $1 from every purchase of a holiday sugar cookie created uniquely for Travis Heights Elementary by the pastry chefs at Mañana. Stop by for a cup of coffee and a holiday treat while benefiting your favorite school. Be sure to let the staff know you came for the cookie and thank them for their partnership! Go early as they have been selling out fast.
If you are interested in purchasing cookies by the dozen, the kitchen needs at least 72 hours notice. Please email Sophia Stout: firstname.lastname@example.org
AISD is a District of Innovation (DOI) which gives all AISD schools some of the benefits that charter schools enjoy, such as setting aside days for additional teacher training, what we call DOI PD Days (you can read more about it here: www.austinisd.org/districtofinnovation).
THES teachers will spend the day adding to their skills with professional development, a discussion about best practices, analyzing student data, Project Based Learning and planning. We look forward to using this learning in the classroom!
