We hope everyone is having a relaxing and fun Fall Break!
A big thank you to all who participated in last Friday’s Dress Down Day brought to you by our school’s National Junior Honor Society. We raised $766.70 for the Veterans Community Integration organization.

Great work, Champions!
Last Friday’s Dress Down Day raised $920.48 for Hurricane Irma victims in Florida!
Inspired by third grader Dominic, who proposed a Dress Down Day a couple of weeks ago for Hurricane Harvey victims in Texas – our school’s National Junior Honor Society (NJHS), third grade student Bobby and kindergarten student Zachary each individually stopped by the office on the same day to propose a Dress Down Day for those in Florida affected by Hurricane Irma.
Administration approved the Dress Down Day, and it was set for this past Friday. Zachary volunteered to make a poster to advertise the day.
We got all the Champions who proposed this recent Dress Down Day together on Friday to snap a few pictures. *Not all NJHS were able to jump in for the picture.
This week, students who proposed the Dress Down Day received “Matter of Pride” t-shirts for demonstrating a positive example of helping others and being a leader.
Thank you, Champions, for being so caring. We are proud of you!
Dress Down for the Veterans

Way to go, students! Our recent Dress Down Day raised $852.69 – and a lot of pet items – for the Humane Society of Southern Arizona.
During last Friday’s Dress Down Day, the Humane Society’s Public Relations Coordinator Sara Gromley visited our school to talk to students about the Humane Society. In addition to discussing the Humane Society’s mission, she also talked to students about how donations help homeless cats, dogs and other animals receive medical services, facilitate adoption events and run educational programs for children and adults.
Students and staff donated more than money during the Dress Down Day. They also donated pet toys, treats and food for the animals at the Humane Society.
