We are reaching out to the junior class and their parents for help with our Holiday Hayrides. We need to find more 16 foot trailers and adult drivers. Juniors can start banking Tiger Bucks this year for ProGrad night. Each trailer and driver will earn $1,000 Tiger Bucks per night.

If you can help, please reach out to Ms. Sandra Stanford for more information at (225) 341-0209 or email her at dakinediver@gmail.com.

PTO/YES Program

The YES table is every Tuesday during all three lunches. Students can look for us in the Commons with the red tablecloth labeled Travis YES Program. If students need a print-out of their hours for National Honor Society or for any other reason, they should fill out the request form available at the table and turn in to one of the YES representatives. Students will be able to pick up the print-out the following Tuesday at the YES table, so please make a note of your deadlines and plan accordingly!
