What is the Wednesday E-folder?

Wednesday E-folders are the main form of communication for the school. The Wednesday E-folder is a weekly electronic newsletter sent to subscribers via Mail Chimp every Wednesday and available on the school website.  Parents will also receive a link via ClassDojo each Wednesday.

The E-folder groups together all information and communications related to their child’s classroom and/or the school. This includes class-related events/teacher-related requests, Principal Newsletters, lunch menus, School-Wide Special Events (e.g., Picture Day, Fall Carnival, Tamalada, Family Fun & Fitness Day), and school-/district-related policies and procedures. Take time to read through everything and fill out any necessary forms.

What happened to Paper Wednesday Folders?

In our ongoing effort to reduce, reuse and recycle at Travis Heights Elementary and help you keep your paper load low at home, we are switching to a Wednesday E-folder system. All of the paper documents that you used to receive in your child’s Wednesday Folder will now be available on the website and through a weekly emailed newsletter.

If you need a print out of any form, ask the front office or your child’s teacher for help.

How Do I Submit to Wednesday E-folders?

Deadline for Submissions to Wednesday E-folders is each Monday at 5pm.

In order to submit to the E-folder, your information must meet the Guidelines (see Guidelines listed).  Fill out the form on the website at https://www.travisheightselementary.com/announcement-submissions/.
