A Thank You From Our Teachers
The Travis faculty would like the PTA to know how deeply touched we are by the expressions of gratitude and support sent to us during Teacher Appreciation Week. Words cannot express the satisfaction we all feel from the affirmations we received. Thank you for making the week special and memorable for each and every one of us. We also want to shout about our excitement over this year's auction. Every year it has gotten better and better. We appreciate all the years of hard work that have made the auction such a splendid event. Thank you for working for Travis' continued success.
