It's our favorite time of the year!

That's right! It's time to go to Schlitterbahn! Every year, our 6th grade students are able to attend a field trip to the New Braunfels waterpark. Sixth grade year is arguably one of the most difficult for middle school students. They have to navigate a bigger campus, make new friends, learn how to handle more responsibility, and manage a hectic schedule. We love getting to celebrate the end a BIG year!

Interested in being a chaperone for our trip? We would love to have you join us! We need 30 chaperones to help out once we get to the waterpark. What would you be responsible for?

Up for the challenge? Please out the form below: 

Because of the high level of interest in chaperoning this trip, we will be taking the first 30 people to fill out the form AND who have a background check through the school (required to chaperone). You will have to purchase a ticket through the school for admission into the park. If you are not chosen to chaperone for the trip, you may still attend at the park. Email Coach Breaux for more information.
