A message from Superintendent Mrs. Cherryl Paul

Mrs Cherryl Paul

Students learn best in an environment that emphasizes understanding their unique learning styles and adaptation of the curriculum and teaching methods to meet those needs. Our dedicated teaching staff is working diligently to become more intentional in regards to using data to drive the content taught during the instructional time -- truly every minute counts! In the age of accountability, a focus on data is more evident than ever. Our team of hardworking, dedicated employees uses data to identify methods to meet the needs of all students. 


Assessment is an important aspect of teaching, and learning. We are responsible for maximizing every moment for students. The Arizona state-wide testing requires students to demonstrate proficiency in standards for reading, writing, mathematics, and science. These tests combine criterion-referenced and performance-based assessments. Assessment results need to drive the instruction and should be embedded into the instructional program. Our goal is to provide students with specific, timely feedback which will assist them in self assessment and goal setting. Teachers will continue to support testing for all students in an environment conducive to success. Parents can help by establishing a “take it seriously and do your best” attitude while helping students understand that parts of a test may be difficult. 


It is especially important for children to arrive at school ready to be successful during testing week. Some steps that can be taken at home to promote success include a balanced dinner, a good night’s sleep, and most important, attending school during the testing week. Please take the opportunity to meet with teachers during family/teacher conference week (week of March 12) to discuss your child’s educational goals and learn more about the AZMerit. Testing dates for the upcoming assessments are Elementary April 10-12, Middle School April 2-5, and 4th/8th Grade Science March 28-29. Have a safe, healthy and restful Spring Break (March 19-23)!

Make each and every day a "YES!" kind of day!
