Peace Builder shirts have been sent home with all students who purchased in advance. 


If you missed or forgot to purchase a shirt, come by the office to pick one up. The cost is $10 per shirt. We have a range of different sizes. It is a first come, first serve basis. So hurry in to pick your shirt up!


Come participate in the fun of food, games and awesome company on Tuesday, August 28th at our Peter Piper Pizza Fundraiser from 5 pm to 8 pm at the Ina and Thornydale location. Invite friends, family, neighbor and anyone else! Funds raised will go towards school improvements (painting outside of buildings, wood chips on playground and replacement of carpet/tile in classrooms). A flyer will be sent home today and next week. The flyer MUST be presented at time of purchase for the sale to be counted towards our event.


Dress Code for Friday is navy blue bottoms with a red or white polo (maroon is NOT red). This is for EVERY Friday for the entire school year. Please make sure students are dressed accordingly. Being out of dress code not only affects the individual student but affects the squad team they are on.


Reporting an absence is required by all families. To report an absence, call 520.293.6661 by 9:00 am. Without a notification, the absence will be considered unexcused.


Who doesn't love NACHOS?!?!

The traveling DC students are selling nachos for $1.50 from the office EVERY Friday at 2:30 pm to raise funds for their trip in March.

Thank you for the support!
