Dear Families,

What an exciting time to b e a Brave! We have not let the pandemic slow us down. Many great activities across campus happen daily and we continue to look for opportunities to expand our learning. As we have been remote since school began, I am so proud of the growth our students and staff have made bringing learning alive in the online environment.

Our Pima Culture Night was a roaring success. Students and families participated in an exciting evening learning event from our special area teachers spearheaded by our Culture teachers Mrs. Hall and Mrs. Hymer. Students who participated received a new book.

The Gila River Indian culture is foundational to our school community.  We continue to embed the Akimel O’otham language and culture into our classrooms and we start our day with the Pledge of Allegiance in both the Akimel O’otham and English languages.

Our students travel the path of new experiences guided by our enthusiastic and committed staff who embrace new learning. STEM is a strong focus for us, and we are proud of our students who are State Semi-finalists in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Competition as well as the team who applied for and received the Good Idea Grant.

The Samsung Solve for Tomorrow submission is based on promoting healthy eating and decision-making around food intake to minimize the effects poor food choices have on the onset of diabetes, a significant community concern.  Using the Glycemic Index (GI) and other nutritional standards students will be afforded the opportunity to access information electronically that will allow them to make positive food choices each day.

The Good Idea Grant funding allowed us to purchase a Glowforge 3-D laser printer. The grant submission describes how QR Codes will be printed on metal signs for students to access help if they were feeling bullied, harassed, or thinking about suicide.  Using their phones students will use the QR Code to input information that will be sent to the School Counselor, and School Administration for immediate support. The signs will be placed around the campus to provide students with discreet opportunities to reach out for help.

We are excited to share that we are looking for another community member to join our front office team.  Our new position, Attendance Liaison, will team with Mrs. Pedro, our Attendance Aide, to monitor student absences and tardies. When students struggle to come to school our Attendance Liaison will meet with students and families to create an action plan to reduce or remove obstacles to consistent student attendance. If you or someone you know would like to be a Brave and support our students and families, please see the job posting on the Human Resources page.

We look forward to seeing our Braves when school resumes in-person learning.
