Mustang Families!

I hope that all of you had an enjoyable 3-day weekend. We are back for a full week with 5 full days of school. We have some great “book ends” planned for a wonderful week.

  • On Monday, we will celebrate the students’ progress on our Million Minute Reading Challenge. As a school we have read over 700,000 minutes this year and this milestone will be celebrate with a “Wings and Gross Things” Assembly where several staff members (myself included) will be blindfolded while we eat chicken wings that have been dipped in a few suspect toppings. We love to have a few moments of fun to recognize the wonderful efforts of our Mustangs!
  • On Friday, we have our Annual BINGO Night sponsored by the PTO. This is always a great time for families and guests. It promises to be another exciting event this year with wonderful prizes and family fun. We hope to see you on Friday at 5:00 p.m.

As a reminder, if you purchased Harkins Summer Movie Fun Passes from our PTO, they will be available at BINGO Night for pickup. If you are unable to collect them at that time, we will keep them in the school office for pickup.

This week, all 3rd - 5th grade classes will continue the AzMERIT Assessments. 3rd Grade will complete part 1 of reading while 4th and 5th grade will complete part 1 of math. The testing days are outlined below by the name of the teacher:

MONDAY – Osuna, Little
TUESDAY – Graffius, Blakely, Banks, Bilbie
WEDNESDAY – Barth, Bocchinfuso, Moza, Wilson
THURSDAY – Cummings, Bilbie*, Blakely*
FRIDAY – Cordova, Kleinhanzl, Dean, Angel

*These classes have 2 testing sessions this week as they will be making up a test from last week when the computers were not available due to a network error.
