Safety on our campus continues to be of utmost priority.  Given recent events in the news we must stress to our families that deliveries must go through the front desk.  We have teachers monitoring at lunch, but they can’t keep up with all the deliveries that are being made in the parking lot as well as oversee the students in the lunch area.   We will continue to do our best to maintain a safe campus and appreciate our families’ support by checking all deliveries in at the front desk.

In addition, PLEASE DO NOT PICK UP OR DROP OFF YOUR SCHOLARS ON BASELINE.  We have had reports of near accidents due to such practices and we ask that you follow the law for the safety of everyone.  We recognize that you may be in a hurry, but please pull into the school parking lot or into the church parking lot for picking up and dropping off.

AZMerit Testing is April 2-5.  More than ever before, the school is greatly affected by the scores that our scholars receive.  While we continue to keep our teaching philosophy to not “teach to the test,” we would like to ask families to help take these tests seriously and encourage your scholars to do their best.

We will be offering the following incentives to our scholars.  Scholars will receive:

-A snack before testing if they show up on time the day of the test.

-A ticket for a free dress down day if they attend all necessary testing days/times and take test seriously.  Teachers monitoring the test will take note of good behavior during the test and the time taken to complete the test.   Dress down day will occur the next week.

-Scholars will receive a 5% increase in their final math or English letter grade at the end of the semester (or when scores arrive) if their score in that area improves from last year.

-Scholars will receive 10% increase in their math or English letter grade at the end of the semester (or when scores arrive) if they pass or exceed in that area on the AZMerit.  (Scholars will receive a maximum of a 10% increase in the grade, they cannot receive both the 5% and 10% increase together).
