Hello Power Campus!

Watch this week for emails from school as we will be sending announcements regarding academic accountability—including student attendance and interventions for students who have fallen behind grade-level standards. We are excited to partner with families and offer resources to meet the challenge of re-returning students to the heavy rigor of preparing kids for college and career success in SY 2021-22. Speaking of academic success, our National Honor Society (NHS) will resume its bi-weekly meetings on Aug. 26. Meetings will occur on alternating Thursdays during your student’s lunches.

What great energy we had at last week’s Green and Gold scrimmages! Our high school volleyball and football teams, cheer squad, and culinary department put together a great event Friday on campus. This week we follow it up with a football scrimmage versus Sabino High School Wednesday at 6:00pm.

Next week we really get rolling with our all-school Fall Picture Day, sports picture day, and our first home football game of the season. The first home game will be a “White Out” with fans in attendance wearing white receiving discounted entry.

Fall Picture Day

Save the date for Tuesday, Aug. 24. School photos take place during the day while sports photos will occur during their practice time.
