Electrifying News – Thank You Veterans!

This weekend we’ll be hosting Family Day on Saturday, which is also Veterans’ Day. Thank you to all TSBVI employees who have served our country. We’re grateful for the sacrifices you have made and your commitment to each of us. Please remember to reach out to the Veterans in your life and thank them as well. We really can never share our gratitude enough.

We have compiled a new staff photo directory as of October 15, 2023. We won’t be updating it regularly this year, but hope for an alternative next year that will allow us to add and delete staff as needed. We have it available for employees in digital and pdf format.

This Wednesday, we’ll be hosting our Annual 1K Duo Dash with the Girls School of Austin. The event will begin promptly at 4:30 pm behind the big gym with participants showing up earlier inside. You’re welcome to run with the students or cheer from the sidelines. I plan to be sporting running shoes myself.

Please save the date for our annual holiday events. We’ll be hosting Thanksgiving Dinner in the cafeteria on November 15th during lunchtime and our Holiday Party will be Friday, December 22nd. More information will be released on the Holiday Party soon. We’re shifting to a non-travel day this year so our Weekends Home team can join us!

Congrats to the TSBVI Goalball teams for a successful weekend and to Mark Gronquist and T Bradshaw for putting on such a fabulous tournament! Our students and employees really demonstrated the best of TSBVI with multiple departments pitching in to ensure we were exceptional hosts. Thanks to everyone for the long days and extra hours worked. You make me feel so proud to be part of this community.

Finally, Election Day is tomorrow! Be sure to get out and vote.

Have a great week!
Emily Coleman, Superintendent
