A message from the Principal.

Wade Carpenter held our fourth Family Engagement Night of the year on Thursday, January 17, at 5:00 p.m. in the Library.  The focus was for our ELA Resource Program and their families.  The event was hosted by our Resource Team of Ms. Oaks and Mr. Jimenez.  This was the second Family Engagement Night held by our Resource Team.   Ms. Oaks and Mr. Jimenez continue their focus on Vocabulary Words and how this can help their students improve in reading and writing.  

We conducted our second Interim Assessments from January 14 to 18 for our high priority areas of 6 and 7 English Language Arts, and 7 and 8 Math.  We shared these results with the entire staff on Wednesday, January 30, during our professional development.  We have witnessed growth in most areas, but we still need to make more improvement with our 8 Grade Math.  Our third Galileo assessments in English Language Arts, Math, and Science, will begin next week, February 4 to 8.  

Our Parent Council Meeting was held on January 31, in the Library.  Nogales Police Department School Resource Officer Hetherington shared with our parents the topics he has discussed in his Law Related Education classes.  The main topic he discussed with our parents was the increase in youth e-cigarette use.  This was a very thought provoking topic and the families in attendance were grateful for this information.
