8th Graders to Visit Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson
 
As a part of the Humanities 8 & 8 Honors courses, all 8th graders have the opportunity to visit one of the country’s largest collections of aircraft, spanning the entire 20th century.
 
This outstanding museum includes hangars devoted to WWII in the European and Pacific theaters, another hangar dedicated to the development of spaceflight technology, as well as a general hangar focusing on the development of aircraft throughout the 20th century.
 
Outdoors, an airplane yard with over 150 planes, some military, others commercial, allows students to walk up close to each aircraft.
 
All 8th graders will bring home a detailed permission slip that will include instructions on how to pay the field trip fee on-line by Tuesday, April 10th. The cost per student is $28, and includes transportation, admission, and a boxed lunch. 
 
We need parent chaperones!  If you are interested and available, please email Mrs. Baird at davina.baird@horizonclc.org

PARENT INVOLVEMENT
Middle School Travel Club is looking for a donation of a carry-on sized suitcase. We bought games while delayed in Boston by a Nor'easter. Since our trips annually head to New England or the mid-Atlantic states, there's is always a possibility of snow days or delayed flights due to storms. We would like to be able to take along a suitcase of games every year to avoid repurchasing them as needed. If you have a suitcase to donate, please drop it off in the front office. Thank you!
AZ CHARTER SCHOOLS RANK HIGH ON NATIONS REPORT CARD
If Arizona charter students were their own state, they would rank first in the nation in eighth-grade math, and second for eighth-grade reading, according to scores released today from the National Assessment for Educational Progress or Nation's Report Card.


Some findings:
  • If AZ charter students were measured as their own state, our eighth graders would rank first in the nation in math, second for eighth grade Reading for NAEP scores. 
  • 2017 Nation’s Report Card shows AZ charter school students continue to set the pace – outperforming non-charter peers in every grade & subject statewide
  • NAEP scores confirm what thousands in AZ have known for years: our charters schools & students are raising the bar & improving public education.
