WHAT WE'RE talking ABOUT
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!
We hope you’ve been having a wonderful summer. We have missed you and can’t wait for school to begin on Tuesday, August 1st.
Before school begins, here are some important dates:
- Back to School Skate Party at Great Skate, 6-9pm– Tuesday, July 25th. This event is open to students and their families! Admission is $8 and includes regular skates, a slice of pizza and a drink! Wear your 80s attire and join us for a great night of skating, laser lights and food. Teachers and staff will be on hand to join the fun! Great Skate is located at 10054 N. 43rd Avenue, Glendale, AZ.
- Meet the Teacher – Wednesday, July 26th – Students and their families are invited to campus to “meet their teacher,” complete necessary forms, and learn about the upcoming year. The times are listed below:
Meet the Teacher A-L
Wednesday, July 26th, 3pm – 5pm
Meet the Teacher M-Z
Wednesday, July 26th, 5pm – 7pm
Even though our instruction has received an A rating from the Arizona Department of Education, we will be upgrading each student's classroom experience to include enrichment opportunities in the areas of art, technology, language, music and health.
Free Programing Before & After School
Our successful before and after school programs will be enhanced with a new structure that highlights study time, skill review, and challenging brain games beginning at 6:30am each school day and after school until 6:00pm.
Fee based Extracurriculars
Our fee based extracurriculars will focus on athletics and the arts. K-4th graders will participate in recreational scrimmages with classmates while 5th-6th graders will compete in the Great Hearts Association sports leagues. All students will have opportunities to participate in traditional and performing arts which will feature performances at the end of each session.
Each classroom now has their very own Classroom Page which includes the teacher's email address, the class description, a link to the most current newsletter as well as fun classroom images.
