What a year! From an auspicious start thanks to Harvey, to more than a few hurdles along the way for our own Travis family, to the challenges facing our wider HISD community, this year was one for the books. Despite all of this, the generosity and fortitude of our school family always shined. For that reason, it has been a pleasure helming this year’s PTA, and I look forward to another year of education, engagement, and excitement when we all meet again on August 27th.
This is our last Tiger Beat of the 2017-18 school year, but be on the lookout for a special summer edition to hit your email in July, chock full of important information and helpful resources for the upcoming year. If you know of an incoming Travis family, please spread the word and encourage them to sign up for Tiger Beat emails at http://www.travispta.org/news/. You can also follow us on Facebook at www.fb.me/TravisElemPTA.
The end of school is always bittersweet. For Shelley Roselius and Wendy Tull, who helmed Tiger Beat the past two years, this issue marks their last as co-editors. Please join us in thanking them both for bringing all the latest Travis news directly to your inbox each week. While we are sad to say goodbye, we are also excited to welcome Gaby McBride as Tiger Beat editor for 2018-19. Have a wonderful summer -- we’ll catch you on the flip side!
