PTA Meeting — 09/30/2021

For those of you who were unable to attend our virtual PTA Meeting last Thursday, you can view the recording here. Learn here what the PTA does and how you can join in activities while we are keeping the children safe.

To become an approved volunteer, you must go through a background check.  Here are the steps to do that.

Volunteering at Travis Heights is Easy!

Step 1: Let us know you are interested 
Let us know your interest to be an official Travis Heights Elementary Volunteer!  Currently we are in need of Parent Lunch Monitors.  Complete this form to let us know your availability.  https://forms.gle/65MSrrToKSUaqLjQ8

Step 2: Annual Background Check 
All volunteers should request a background check each year. This process can take a couple of weeks, especially at the beginning of the school year, so submit yours early! (Note: Background checks do not check immigration status & information is not shared with other agencies.)
