The 2018-2019 School Year starts our journey together. The primary goal is to increase the capacity of all students. Together, let's build their social and academic skills. Parents, if you have a concern, please work with your child's teacher first to resolve the issue. If the problem cannot be resolved, please contact your school principal. If the problem continues, please contact the superintendent. All of us can be reached at 928.683.2225. Remember, we RISE together.
