This is the image for the news article titled Future Ready Fifth Graders It may be the end of the school year, but it is clear that Aimee Carrasco, Lackland ISD’s Military Student Transition Consultant, wants to make sure 5th grade students are already prepared for their big transition to junior high. Mrs. Carrasco, with the assistance of counselors, teachers, administrators and district personnel, hosted a 5th-grade transition camp so that students could become familiar with their next school. Students ate lunch in their “new” cafeteria, toured next year’s hallways, heard about responsibilities and privileges from teachers, learned about the requirements of physical education, experienced performances by the high school band and drama program and received helpful tips and encouragement from current 6th-grade students.
 
“The ability to provide the students insight and familiarity into next year will hopefully ease anxiety and provide for a smoother transition for the students,” Mrs. Carrasco said, “we look forward to making this a Lackland tradition.”
