T Bar M Field Trip
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 field trip. More information coming soon.
All 5th graders are invited to try out in the spring for this variety show, either solo or in a small group (skits, singing, piano, dance, puppet show, or anything creative). More information will be sent home at a later date.
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 by April 27. Please contact Lauren Pepping or RaeAnn Pieper with any questions.
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. Contact Christine Gaughan or Kacy Tozzi with any questions.
Pre-order your yearbooks now to preserve your child’s 5th grade memories for $30 by April 30th through Mule Market. We encourage parents to keep a copy of their receipt as a reminder of this purchase since yearbooks do not arrive until the last week of school. For more information, contact Cindy Puchalski.
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. For more information contact Shannon Turner, Mary Conger, or Christen Wommack
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 Carrie Lane, Elissa Sangster, or K'Lee Skaug with any questions.
