Preparing for our field trip to Elgin Tree Farm

Students should wear jeans and comfortable, closed-toed athletic shoes with socks – NO FLIP FLOPS OR SANDALS.

If your child is bringing a lunch from home, please pack it in a plastic zipper bag labeled with your child’s name; we do not want to keep track of lunch boxes.

We will leave campus around 9:00 am and arrive at Elgin Tree Farm around 9:45. We will leave the farm around 1:00 pm and get back to campus about 1:30. All students must return to school on the bus and dismiss from there.



Parents or family members attending the trip must provide their own transportation; the bus is for teachers and students only. Admission to the farm is $7 for visitors, and the parking is free.
Parents/family members are responsible for bringing their own lunch; there are no food vendors at the farm.


We suggest that those coming with us, follow the bus so you do not have to get directions. Otherwise, the physical address is Elgin Christmas Tree Farm, 120 Natures Way, Elgin, TX 78621.

All students must return to campus on the bus.

Thank you,

Pre-kindergarten teachers

I sent out a sign up genius email that invites you to sign up for a parent teacher conference. The conferences held on February 17th will be at Cottonwood ElementaryAll other conferences will be held at Hutto Elementary. All families are welcome to sign up for a date and time that is convenient for them regardless of where their child attends.

Cottonwood Creek Families

Early release will not affect the students in my class at Cottonwood since they regularly dismiss at 11:10 a.m.

Hutto Elementary Families

My students at Hutto Elementary will need to attend class in the morning from 7:30-11:10. At 11:10 Ms. Ross will dismiss students at the front of the school where students are normally dropped off. On this day, students must be picked up as there are no buses running at this dismissal time

Please let me know if you have any questions!
