Dear Travis Elementary Families,

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! We are very excited about the start of this new school year and are looking forward to meeting your child. Our school is known for providing our students with an outstanding education which leads to academic success! Our programs are inclusive, standards-aligned, and student-centered. We have established a positive school spirit and morale that fosters are students’ well-being! The cooperative partnership between school, home, and the community has made this possible.

One of the exceptional components of Travis Elementary school is the partnership that exists between the home and school. Travis Elementary has a tradition of supportive hard-working families. Throughout the year you will have an opportunity to support our school through participation in PTO, Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students), volunteering in the classroom, chaperoning a field trip, helping in the library or book fair, joining Site Council, or helping in other fun educational activities held on site designed to assist your child’s learning. 

This year we will continue to implement the No Excuses University program focused on teaching our students that they all have the ability to go to college in their future. Our belief is that all Travis students, without exception, will be proficient in reading, writing and mathematics. We will continue to support this effort with focus on these subject areas. This year we will focus on helping al students to develop a math mindset and expand their literacy skills. We invite parents to assist us with this goal by preparing a quiet study space at home, reviewing homework daily, attending family Math and English curriculum nights, and reading frequently to and with your child. Engaging your child in conversation about what they learned in school will foster their growth as a learner further. 

We invite parents to encourage students to practice school expectations by following the “Falcon Talon’s” of “Being Safe, Being Respectful, and Being Responsible.” We will continue to support these character traits through our “Second Step” and “BEST” programs as well as implementing Kagan Cooperative strategies in class. To keep you informed we will post our Newsletter on our webpage and our telephone and email message system will be used to convey other pertinent information. Please visit our website often! 

I am excited to be part of the dedicated staff and community at Travis Elementary school. As we continue this journey together, I am certain we will have an amazing year filled with fun, new experiences, new relationships, and learning for all of us!


Looking forward to meeting you and your children!
