Welcome back to school! On behalf of the San Antonio teachers and staff, we would like to extend a warm welcome to our new and returning San Antonio Hawks. We hope that you all had a wonderful, relaxing summer break with your family. The San Antonio teachers and staff are all looking forward to an amazing year and all that we will accomplish together.
San Antonio teachers are your partners in creating a school that encourages friendship, support, excitement for learning and community. We look forward to our hallways and classrooms being filled with laughter and new friends. Join us on the first day of school, Aug 21st at 8:00 am, for Back to School photo opportunities with our fabulous staff.
We are excited to share that we have new teaching staff and many returning staff members this year. The teachers have been busy preparing their classrooms for a fantastic year of learning ahead.

Nutrition Services Program
The price for school breakfast is $2.25 and lunch is $3.50. We encourage all families to apply each year for the free and reduced lunch program. In addition to providing a nutritious breakfast and lunch, enrollment in this program significantly helps our school receive needed funding. Returning students who qualified for free or reduced meals must fill out a new form for the 2019-2020 school year.
Kinder Club and Hawk’s Nest
San Antonio offers a PTO parent-pay after school program Monday - Friday. Hawk’s Nest registration begins on the first day of school. Hawk’s Nest hours of operation are from 2:30-5:30 pm. Kinder Club is available for our TK and kindergarten students from 1:00-2:30 on Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Friday. On Wednesdays, Tk and Kindergarten students go directly to Hawk’s Nest.
That’s it for now, Go Hawks!
