Getting a kick out of photos of themselves and their classmates from several years earlier are, from left, Port Aransas High School seniors Wylie Duxstad, Hefner Appling and Miles Parsons. Brundrett Middle School English teacher Michelle Parker shoots photos of her students every year and also has her sixth-grade students write letters to themselves, to be opened by those same students when they are high school seniors. Parker handed out the photos and letters to the seniors on Thursday, May 12. In the letters, sixth-graders write about such things as their favorite music, their goals and how they see their futures. Parker has been teaching the letter-writing activity for eight years.
