In April, 2019, members of the PTSA met and brainstormed about how to develop the organization more fully. One of the outcomes of this was the establishment of these committees: communications, fundraising, outreach, environmental, community engagement, safety/security/health, and college/career. We also provided breakfast for teachers and staff administering End of Course exams.
In March, 2019, the PTSA assisted the PTA in receiving a $500 mini-grant from Austin Council of PTAs to support the purchase of band instruments for Travis students. In addition to this grant, PTSA raised another $1000 for the purchase.
We organized and sponsored 2 student dances this year, purchased spirit items,
supported parents to attend an African-American leadership conference, procured items donated to the PE Department, helped with beautification day, sponsored faculty appreciation events, and helped support graduating seniors.
