FRUIT BOWL CHALLENGE

Love our Travis teachers? What better way to show them some love than by providing them with healthy fruit to snack on during the week. Families take turns to to fill the bowl once a week on Wednesdays to help the teachers through hump day! Wednesdays don't work? Another day during the week is great, too!
