Just a few reminders about upcoming events.

  1. The Halloween Party is coming up quickly! If you haven’t, yet, please return your child’s form for Halloween and Valentine’s day and help our kids have really great class parties!
  2. Got toddlers???  Travilah families with younger siblings are invited to watch the Halloween parade at 2:15 on October 31st.  Following the parade, students return to their classrooms for their class parties.  Younger siblings are invited to their own party in the multi purpose room.
  3. This Friday is the 2nd edition of the Dolphin’s Splash. Do you own a business, or know someone who does, and are interested in advertising in the Travilah ES PTAs monthly Dolphin’s Splash newsletter?
