Important Camp Surf Information

Our Camp Surf trip is quickly approaching and we want everyone to know all the following details:
Drop off and Pick Up: Please drop-off your child at 5:00 AM, Monday, April 23rd at Main Campus (Lindsay and Southern). Located at 2834 East Southern Avenue, Mesa, AZ
If you are a chaperone, and you need to park your car at the school, then please come at 4:45 AM to NORTH Campus so we don't have to leave any parked cars at the main campus.  (we will use one of the white school-vans to shuttle chaperons from North to Main Campus). 
We plan to leave Camp Surf at approximately 1:00PM on Friday, April 27th and arrive back at Main campus between 7:00PM - 8:00PM that same day. 

Meals on the road: Students are responsible to either pack a breakfast or bring money for breakfast.  They may also bring snacks and a water bottle for the road.  We are collecting $10 dollars per person to cover dinner at Golden Corral in Yuma on the way back (for Dinner). I will collect the money for the dinner while…

Our Month of Many Dates and Activities

Dear Parents,
Now that we are finished testing, the weeks seem to be speeding by a little too quickly.  Please take careful note of the following upcoming activities and changes to some of them. Also, we have transferred the important dates to the enclosed calendar.
Luau Change Due to a schedule change with the people performing at our Upper Elementary Luau, we had to change the Luau to:
Friday, May 18th 2018 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM.
We will need help with set-up and tear-down and clean-up. Also, we still need people to volunteer to help organize and participate in committees such as, table committee, mayonnaise and condiments committee, people to help serve, people to help take tickets and a few other labor-type committees are needed. I will be working with Marlene to create an online sign up sheet for these items. We are happy to issue refunds for those who have purchased tickets and unable to make the new date.

State Testing this Week!

Dear Parents,
We hope all our families had a fun and restful and relaxing Easter!   We also enjoyed seeing many parents at the memorial service for Audrey.  We are grateful for all those who have been supportive during this difficult time for the family. Even the smallest acts of kindness mean so much. 
It really is hard to believe that state testing is upon us! Today, we have been busy today going over our final preparations and we are more than ready for the AZ Merit, tomorrow morning. Students were heartily encouraged to go to bed early this week, and there will not be any homework assigned.  We will administer the writing test on Tuesday and the language and math portions in the following days this week.  Fourth graders will take the science test the following Tuesday, April 10th.  Please have your child eat a nourishing breakfast each morning and make sure your child arrives at school before 8:30 so they are not missing out on any of our scheduled activities after testing. While gr…
