Your Travis PTA has been working hard, even this summer!
A $40,000 check was written for EverydayMath, the new curriculum Travis is adopting school-wide this fall. Why $40,000? The Houston Independent School District (HISD) is using GoMath! as its curriculum, but our Travis teachers prefer EverydayMath for their comprehensive approach. The PTA stepped up to cover the cost!
A $20,000 check was written for the Science Lab and its teacher. The Science Lab will once again be staffed full time, and the PTA was able to fund that. This enables the teachers to have a resource of materials and knowledge when they go into the Science Lab.
A $15,000 check was written for Learn to Code. The PTA, thanks to the Auction Challenge 2015 Donors, has provided enough iPads for each student in the computer lab. We also are providing protective cases for the iPads and a locking cart for storage. Mr. Karam will incorporate it into his curriculum school-wide this fall.
