Good Day Families,

AZ Merit testing has begun for grades 3rd – High School. Please try to schedule any doctor’s appointments for a different day/time. Once a student begins taking a section of the AZ Merit test, they must finish that section during that school day. In addition, please make sure to arrive at school on time each day. Once testing has started your kiddo will not be permitted to enter the classroom until that testing session has concluded and will need to complete the test during a makeup session.

Spring Picture Day – Our school wide Spring Picture Day is Wednesday, April 11th. Preschool thru 12th Grade students will be photographed. There will also be class pictures for Preschool thru 5th grade. There is no need to pre-order pictures because a proof will be sent home after picture day. Our 8th Graders and 12th Graders will take a class Pan-o-rama. For the Pan-o-rama there will be a pre-order form. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Tatum at
