Tarvin Times

Oct. 29, 2021


We had such a great turnout for Trunk or Treat last night. It was great to see our community together and the kids having so much fun. Thank you, PTA, trunk decorators, and candy donators for making it a great success!

Just a reminder that November 2nd is a student holiday. We do have school on Monday, November 1st.

Together in Learning,

Christy Hilbun

Lost and Found

We are already collecting lost jackets and sweaters. Please write your child's name inside the jacket so we can get it to the right owner. If your child is missing something, the lost and found rack is in the cafeteria. Tell them to check it out.

Breakfast and Lunch Menus

Leander ISD school menus, along with complete nutrition information, are available through Nutrislice
