District Fifth Graders Tour Future Campus

Fifth grade students at the nine elementary schools in the Los Fresnos CISD – the future Class of 2025 – received a dose of life as a high school student.

Each of the nine schools visited Los Fresnos High for a three-hour visit during the mornings of Feb. 14.

It’s a tradition started in 2010 by former LFHS principal Ronnie Rodriguez to let fifth grade students know to expect when they get to LFHS.

The fifth graders will attend one of the district’s three middle schools for the next three years after the current school ends before attending Los Fresnos United and Los Fresnos High School.

The first fifth-grade group who visited in 2010 graduated in 2017.

“It’s important for them to let them know what great programs we have here,” said Rodriguez, the Career and Technology Education program Director. “This gives them an opportunity to think about possible careers.”

The students were divided into six groups by a university name.

The areas visited included:

  • Agriculture Classroom, Wood Shop, Welding Shop, Agriculture Barn
  • Criminal Justice, Folklorico, JROTC, Mariachi and Band
  • Falcon Creations, Robotics, Media Technology and Quad
  • Athletics Weight Room, Locker Room, Gym
  • Science Labs, HOSA, EMT, FCCLA, and Art
  • Library, Bank, Go Center, Counselors and Theatre

The students were accompanied by their fifth-grade teachers and school counselors.

A group picture is taken of the fifth graders at each school at the start of the visit and a poster is presented to them before they leave. Nine posters, one from each elementary schools, have been displayed at LFHS to feature the Class of 2025.
