On Wings of Excellence

Hawaiian Falls Tickets
Hawaiian Falls Ticket Sales Have Begun
Celebrate the end of school with a fun outing to Hawaiian Falls, The Colony, on Saturday, June 4. Andrews families will have private use of the park from 6-8:30 p.m., but you may enter the park any time after 10:30 a.m. Unlimited drinks all day. If you’re not able to attend that day, the $20 tickets (with unlimited drinks) are good to use on any regular operating day for the 2016 season. Plan ahead for the summer and purchase as many as you need.
Please remember to stop by the clinic to pick-up your child’s medication on or before the last day of school. Medication cannot be sent home with the student. According to PISD guidelines, all medication that is not picked-up by the last day of school will be destroyed.
If you are planning to bring medication to school for next year, please remember to bring the medication in its original packaging, including the pharmacy prescription label if appropriate. Also, make sure the medication has a current expiration date.
The week before school starts, August 15th – 19th, is a good time to drop off medications, forms, and supplies.
