Week of October 21-25

Travis will be a polling site on election day. On November 5, staff members who normally park in the shared parking lot between Sam Houston and our school are asked to park in the back to free up parking spaces for voters. We will not use the auditorium to enter or exit the building on this day.

Travis Teachers Vote!

To put some fun in to voting for the upcoming bond, we are having an incentive for staff members. Bring your "I Voted" stickers to fill up our 100's chart by the end of the school day on Friday, Oct. 25. If we have 100% participation from all staff, everyone will have jeans through December AND an extra 30 minutes at lunch! You can bring your sticker, your neighbor's sticker, your significat other's sticker...all are welcome! All you have to do is place the sticker in a square and write your last name on it for every sticker you affix. The chart will be in the PLC Room.
