6th Grade

Field Trip

On Friday, April 1 6th grade GT was able to go to Headwaters at the Comal for a tour (download the app to learn some facts about it here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/inaturalist/id421397028) and then headed to Landa Park for a scavenger hunt about our town. They ate lunch at the pavilion in the park and were able to play on the playground a bit before returning to school. The students had a blast! See photos below.

Texas State Field Trip

8th grade GT goes to Texas State as a way to wrap up their college/career unit from the last 9 weeks. They were able to take a tour, eat at the dining hall and shop the campus bookstore for Texas State swag. We hope this encourages them to continue to think about their futures.
