PTA Membership Drive!
PTA is having a membership drive in September. First and foremost, PTA is for every family who has a child at Teravista Elementary. PTA is for moms, dads, caregivers, grandparents, teachers and the broader community! PTA dues directly support your child. PTA dues help fund essential school resources and curriculum needs, including computer programs for every grade like Brain Pop and Discovery Education and the literacy library. And this month the top two grade levels with the most PTA memberships by September 27, 2021 will win popsicles for their entire grade! Go to teravistapta.com and follow the link to the PTA store to join (membership dues are $8 for adults and $5 for students).
Library Volunteers Needed
Mrs. Doeckel needs volunteers Tuesdays - Thursdays. Early morning is preferred, but anytime is great. If you are interested, please email PTA Board Library Chair Sabine McCalla at firstname.lastname@example.org Staff Grant Funded
Teravista PTA funded the purchase of enrichment materials by TAG teacher Mrs. Schwab for use in all Teravista classes to help our students develop their problem-solving skills and be global thinkers.

Round Rock ISD Clothes Closet
Need volunteers and board member. One of the important activities the Teravista PTA helps with is the RRISD Clothes Closet. Each year the Clothes Closet helps over 1,000 students providing gently used clothing and new socks and new underwear. If you know a student who needs clothing please have them contact the school nurse for a voucher. The TvE PTA accepts donations of gently used clothing (must meet RRISD dress code and please no stains, rips, tears, or broken zippers) and new socks and new underwear (size 4T – adult). The Clothes Closet also accepts monetary donations. Donations can be dropped off at the TvE main office. TvE PTA also volunteers to work at the RRISD Clothes Closet once a month helping to fill the vouchers for students and their families. Our volunteer day is the third Thursday of each month at Voigt Elementary School. Our next volunteer day is September 16. If you are interested in volunteering at the Clothes Closet please check out https://www.signupgenius.com/index.cfm?go=s.signup&urlid=10c0c4ba5ad2fa3fd0-clothes4&use. Also, if you’re interested in serving as the PTA Board Chair for the Clothes Closet, please email email@example.com.
PTA Member Spotlight
Get to know Teravista Elementary PTA President Jennifer Jones Barbour
Why did you join PTA?
I joined the PTA because I wanted to learn a little bit more about Teravista and I wanted to help out at my children's school.
What’s your favorite thing about Teravista Elementary?
My favorite thing about Teravista is that it is a Lighthouse of Leadership school. Being able to connect with the ideas of leadership from the school as a family has been really fun and helpful. We talk about "putting first things first" ALL the time!
What grades are your kids in this year?
I have a 4th grader at Teravista and a 6th grader at Hopewell.
What are some of your hobbies and interests?
I read and do crochet and we camp as a family. We love to travel and one fun fact about me is that my husband and I got to travel to Kenya because I won a Safari to Kenya from the San Antonio zoo. I might have used up all my luck winning that trip.
