New Student Orientation 

Every year, we offer several orientation camps and meetings for new families. While these events are mainly geared toward incoming 6th graders, anyone in 7th or 8th grade who is new to our school may also attend any of these events:

  • Cougar Camp (a.k.a. Transition Camp): New students in all grades are welcome to attend. This affordable 3-day “transition camp” allows them to learn their way around the building, get an overview of how things work at Small, play fun games and socialize. The camp is 3 hours long each day, with two sessions available: 9 am-noon or 1-4 pm (The cost is $30 and includes a t-shirt). NOTE: If you missed Cougar Camp registration, please inquire about which session has space available. We do everything possible to accommodate last-minute participants, but we may run out of t-shirts.

  • Fast Pass to Success: This is new this year (2019-2020) it will be a combination of a parent information night and student walk so they can get comfortable with the school and where to find their classes. Save the date Thursday, August 15th, 2019. 

If you have questions about these events, please contact the front office at 512-841-6700. 

If you are unable to attend any of these events, do not worry! During the first week of school, the staff is always ready to help each child find their way, learn their schedules, and get used to the way things work.

If you are unable to attend any of these events, do not worry! During the first week of school, the staff is always ready to help each child find their way, learn their schedules, and get used to the way things work. On the first day, we post a list of the assigned PRIDE classes (this is like an advisory or homeroom class).

When students arrive on the first day of school, they need to find their name on the list and report directly to their assigned PRIDE classroom. The PRIDE teacher will guide them through their entire first day, and they will have a chance to visit each classroom and meet each teacher they’ll have for the first semester.

School Supplies

Teachers give out supply lists AFTER school starts because needs vary widely by subject and classroom. If you would like to stock up on basics before school starts, here the most recent list of recommended basics.
