Top IXL Users Awarded

We would like to congratulate our top IXL users! We recognized the top IXL users at our awards assembly on Tuesday, January 8, 2019. Please encourage your children to practice and master skills on IXL. This a great way to practice skills, motivate students to continue to learn, and optimize use of Chromebooks and devices. For a listing of the recognized students, please feel free to check out our January newsletter.

Our kindergarten round-up is happening soon! Please join us on Tuesday, February 19, 2019, from 3:30 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. in the community room. We are looking forward to meeting you!

Community Volunteers Lend Helping Hands

Community volunteers will be lending a helping hand with students who need a little more one-on-one time building reading and math fluency skills. The intervention begins in February, and we will send parent notification and permission slips out soon. We are fortunate to have so many community members who are willing to help!

Free and/or Reduced Lunch Application

Families impacted by the federal government shutdown may qualify for free and/or reduced school meals. The Arizona Department of Education (ADE) has provided guidance for furloughed employees and the National School Lunch Program. 

Furloughed employees can submit an application for free and/or reduced school meals for their children. Applications are available in the front office. Use current earnings when reporting salary. 

ADE encourages currently furloughed employees to submit an updated application with the change of income when they return to work.
