O. Henry E-News: Week of Jan. 26


HEB Camp 2015
We had an amazing trip to HEB Camp! Our students felt alive with the thrill of the outdoors for four days, nestled in a beautiful canyon next to the Frio River. They competed all week in various activities including raft-building, talent contests, scavenger hunts, trivia contests, and relay races. Despite some close results, the Yellow Team was victorious and claimed first prize: the Golden Throne! When not competing, the students participated in Archery, Fishing, Kayaking, Hiking, Music-Video Making, Ropes-Course Climbing, Crafting, and other Team-Building Activities.

Special Thanks to our parent chaperones: Jonathan Pattie, Su Kosub, Jeff Kosub, Debbie Kent, Renae Holden, Maria Vargas, Ron James, Irene Moore, and Louise Johnson.…

Revolution Foods Update
We hope your students tried the new food last week and found it enjoyable. The lunch lines have been reasonable and the students have had plenty of time to finish their meal in 30 minutes. We will administer a survey in the coming days to gather some data about their impressions. Remember, there are three different ways to pay for the Revolution meals:

1) pay cash at the register during lunch
2) prepay by bringing in cash in the morning to the cafeteria kitchen before school
3) prepay online at www.myLunchMoney.com (highly recommended)

Again, we want to offer all students and staff tasty, healthy food each and every day!…
