Whether it feels like your summer is zipping by or dragging on, know that your PTA is here for you, and on August 26th, as our kids head back to school, we’ll be right there by your side to reassure you or to celebrate with you…and maybe a little bit of both.

The Travis PTA has been busy this summer crafting fun and fabulous 2019-2020 plans. Read on for dates and details, and check out our Facebook page for updates throughout the year. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at president@travispta.org. Also, don’t forget to join the Travis PTA! Our membership link will go live on August 1, 2019.

In other community news, Travis Foundation President Shelly Anello, Mr. Day, and I have already begun working together to refine the roles that the Travis Foundation and the Travis PTA will play in support of the school this fall and beyond. The Travis PTA will maintain our focus on advocacy and volunteering, and we will continue to run community building, family friendly events, like our upcoming Fall Carnival. (Mark your calendars for October 26th and email carnival@travispta.org if you would like to get involved.) The Travis Foundation will take on a primary role in fundraising for Travis and will coordinate our community’s fundraising events geared to parents, including a large FUN spring fundraising event. The school will also continue to do some in-house fundraising, including a Boosterthon Fun Run in early September. I hope that each and every one of these events is a resounding success, as they all support our Travis community.

We look forward to seeing all of you, old friends and new ones, at the end of August!

Tamara Steele, PTA President
