Extra Special Excursions
WE are so excited our 5th graders get to enjoy T Bar M together! T Bar M (in New Braunfels) is a camp that provides a day-long field trip for the students. Students enjoy ropes courses and group games that encourage teamwork, cooperation and trust. Buses leave by 8:15 and return at 5:00pm. No parent chaperones will be needed for this fun day. More information & exact date coming soon. Thank you in advance for helping make this day fabulous and extra special for our 5th grade students and teachers! (NOTE: 5th graders pay BOTH 5th grade field trip fee + 5th Fun Fee, which includes Excursion, t-shirt, and several other items!)

Now and Then Photos
Parents are asked to provide a picture of their child when they were younger and a current picture. These pictures are shown side by side on a large screen at the Graduation Ceremony as each child walks across the stage. Watch for a form asking for these photos in March. They are due April 27..
5th Grade Video
Pictures taken throughout the past five school years are put together with music and made into a video to be shown at the Graduation Ceremony. A permission slip will be sent home at the beginning of the year to give permission for your child’s picture to appear in the video. The permission slip must be signed to be included in the video.
A Graduation Ceremony will be held in the Woodridge Auditorium. Prior to the ceremony, students will parade throughout the school one last time after morning announcements. Parents are invited to attend the Graduation Ceremony.
End of Year Pool Party
Following the ceremony students will enjoy a private pool party at the Alamo Heights Pool. Parents are encouraged to volunteer at the pool party. Contact Emily King, Leslie Mullins, or Libby McKelvain with any questions.
