"Get in the Game" Community Softball Tournament


Four elementary schools in Kingwood have come together for a community softball tournament to help Woodland Hills Elementary reach this year’s annual fund campaign goals.  On Friday, May 8, Bear Branch Elementary, Elm Grove Elementary, Foster Elementary, and Woodland Hills Elementary will hold the first of four “Get in the Game” Community Softball Tournaments. 

These four campuses are in the same vertical pattern in Kingwood, with students progressing on to Kingwood Middle School and ultimately to Kingwood Park High School. The tournament will give students, parents, alumni and others in the community a chance to support their campus while supporting Woodland Hills.  

Woodland Hills Elementary will be the first up to bat to receive proceeds from this year’s event. As a community, the schools have decided to help each other for the next four years to raise private funds.  Campuses participating in future tournaments will rotate as beneficiaries for their school’s funding initiatives.

Woodland Hills principal Debi Beard said, “Our school is thankful for our neighboring schools for coming together to help us raise funds to update our school’s aging playground equipment. We have already seen our staff, students, parents, district PTA, and local businesses in the community support our efforts.”

Those who attend the game will have the chance to cheer on their school, hear Kingwood Middle School principal, Bob Atteberry announce the game and watch Superintendent Dr. Guy Sconzo throw out the first pitch.

The tournament will be played at Kingwood Park High School’s softball field on Friday, May 8 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Admission is $3 and concessions will be available. For more information please contact, Marilyn Mann at
