Dear Hassayampa Family,
It is difficult for me to believe how quickly this school year is flying by! Our students have been learning so many great things each and every day. It is exciting to consider the academic and social gains they have made. Obviously, social gains aren’t easily quantified, but I am certain both teachers and parents have seen their students mature. Academically, we are able to quantify gains made based on Galileo, math fact fluency, and DIBELS. In our quarterly data review, we noted great growth in our students. We celebrated students who exceeded the standard on Galileo during our 3rd quarter honors assembly on April 1. Please join us at the end of the year when we have our final celebration of our great students!
Clearly, our students did quite well on their benchmark assessments in February. We are feeling confident that these gains will be reflected in how students perform on AzMERIT which is around the corner (next week!). To keep the testing process smooth, please make sure you work your family schedules around our testing times. It is additional work for everyone to make up tests that students have missed. Also, make sure your child gets plenty of rest the nights before testing and has a healthy, low-sugar breakfast on the mornings of testing. We want the best for all of our students!
Some of you may have already heard the rumor that Hassayampa is working on opening a preschool next fall. Well, the rumor is true! We have begun cleaning out the space and making it four-year old friendly! The state application and licensing will be completed in April, and we hope to have registration information available for families soon. We are excited about this endeavor and the service it will provide to our community.
As is typical, we have many great things happening at Hassayampa. Please review the calendar of events closely, and add the information to your family calendar. I look forward to seeing you all at any one of our many events!
Very truly yours,
