Hello Power Campus!

Welcome to MAP testing and final three weeks of semester 1. All assignments for first semester are due to teachers Friday, Dec. 10 and semester 1 finals will be on Monday-Tuesday, Dec. 13-14.

Thank you to all the families who joined us last week at our Charlie Brown Thanksgiving event and for your donations to our culinary department.  It was a really nice event on campus with our students and families. Tomorrow on campus we have fall picture re-takes and senior pictures happening in the main gym. This Friday we host our first home basketball games and our JH athletes this week start their winter season contests.

Re-enrollment is just around the corner. This year we will re-introduce paper packets and the Online Registration forms through Infinite Campus. We have very specific instructions for reenrollment in an additional email come out later this week.

Today is also #GivingTuesday—I sent out an email earlier today letting you know about all our teacher’s Donor Choose projects. Just on the horizon, we will also be rolling out our Arizona Tax Credit programs where you will be able to donate to all our great programs we offer on campus.

COVID Procedures

With the winter season upon us, just a quick reminder of our COVID procedures. If there is a positive COVID case within your household, please keep your students’ home and contact the school. We are doing our best to keep everyone healthy, so please notify us if anyone in your household tests positive.
