School’s out, the little tykes have been on vacation for a week, and they’re already bored. How are you going to make it to August? Here are some ideas on how parents and children can get through the summer and have a good time doing it just by planning fun things to do every day. It’s easier than you think.
You can help change lives. On June 9, 6-10 p.m., the Blair Charity Group is sponsoring a family evening of fun at Golf N’ Stuff. An all-inclusive ticket includes unlimited golf, bumper boats, laser tag, batting cages, and so much more. Proceeds benefit the Arizona Basketball Academy, providing underserved youth access to basketball camps where they learn essential life skills.
La Paloma offers free Title I Summer School, so kids don’t lose any reading, writing, or math skills over the long summer break. Space is limited! Download the registration packet below and bring your completed packet back to the front office as soon as possible.
Is home ownership right for you? It may be easier than you think! Parents can find out at our informational Home Buyers Class on April 25. April is Financial Literacy Month, and we’ll have real estate experts share their knowledge and provide you with tools to determine if home ownership is right for your family. Classes are from 6-7 p.m., with a Q&A session from 7-7:30 p.m. Dinner and childcare will be provided.
March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. A lot has changed in the 30 years since Ronald Reagan proclaimed the first Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month in 1987. The main change has come in education which, until fairly recently, had no cohesive plan for teaching the developmentally disabled.
On Thursday, April 6, AIMS (Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards) science assessment testing will be conducted for grades 4 and 8, while students in other grades will have the opportunity to make up any standardized tests they have missed. Parents, please be certain your student is present and on time the day of the test.
Wednesday, March 29, will be our third and final Parent-Teacher Data Night of this school year. Parents of students in grades 3-8 will receive information on their children’s progress, District Formative Assessments, and Galileo Benchmarks. Incentives will be awarded to parents who attend this event. Please contact your child’s teacher for further information.
