Information for Travis PTO/YES

Parents and Students – The Travis YES program, sponsored by the Travis PTO, is a great way to keep track of your student’s volunteer hours that are so important to colleges and universities. See the Travis website under Clubs and Organizations for more information, guidelines, and forms for YES.

Students – if you need a printout of your YES hours for NHS applications, come to the YES table in the Commons on TUESDAYS and fill out the request form. You may then pick up your printout the following Tuesday, but it is YOUR responsibility to keep track of your deadline and plan accordingly.

A Note Regarding Food Brought To School To Share

Just a reminder, students that are bringing food items to school for classroom or extra-curricular purposes that will be shared with other students may only bring store bought items that have packaging that lists the ingredients.


Also a reminder, students may not sell food items at school for any reason unless through a school approved fundraiser and only then at times specified via the fundraiser.
