Best Holiday Tamalada

Travis Heights Elementary School PTA

What started out three years ago as a small project to involve non-English speaking parents in a cultural exchange at this near South Austin elementary school has grown into an extremely successful fundraiser every December. Families come to school and stay all day, making, cooking, eating and selling tamales for consumption during the upcoming holiday season. It's strengthened the social bonds among parents, teachers and students and raised the level of cultural awareness for everyone. And they make good tamales.
