  • Bobcats,

    We are down to the final 4 days with our Bobcats this year. There is a lot going on next week and thank you in advance for sending your kiddos to school each and every day. Cross your fingers that the weather for next Tuesday and Wednesday holds out like they are projecting for our Powder Puff game and Field days.

    6th and 7th grade Bobcats will have Field Day on campus on 5/22. There will be a water bouncy house so if your Bobcat wants to get wet I strongly recommend wearing a bathing suit and bringing a towel. I also recommend bringing a hat to wear and a water bottle if they do not normally. 8th grade Bobcats will be going to the Buda City Park and they will be fed hamburgers and hot dogs by our amazing PTA. They are also encouraged to wear a hat and a bathing suit if they choose to play in the splash pad or choose to participate in the water gun battle. 8th grade student ONLY can bring empty water guns to campus and take them to the park. Any students who choose to use the water gun before we leave for the park will remain on campus in ISS that day. We will depart around 9:30 and return around 2:00.

    Reminder that anyone who wants to attend the Awards Assembly can come and sign in on Monday, May 20th, for the event the following day. If that is not possible I strongly urge you to arrive early for your student’s assembly so you can ensure that you get signed in. Parents who arrive early will be directed to the café to wait for their child’s assembly to begin. Please keep in mind that Athletic awards are happening on the 20th and are separate from the Academic awards on the 21st (some folks were confused on this). If you have any questions on whether your Bobcat is receiving an Academic award please contact me. Parents of students receiving an Academic award were emailed on 4/29 around 9:30 AM if you are looking for the email.
