A Message from Ms. Arnold

Dear GAA Families

As you may have heard, Maricopa county has met the benchmarks set for schools to be able to reopen.

GAA will reopen as scheduled on October 12, 2020. At that time, we will begin our hybrid schedule discussed at the beginning of the year. For now, we will continue moving forward with our plan that is currently in place.

Last week, we completed our MAP Benchmark and we tested over 95% of our students! You will be getting reports this week on how your child performed as well as a video on how to read the reports. Teachers are using this information to inform their whole group and small group instruction for these last 4 weeks of Q1 and also into Q2.

October 1st & 2nd will be parent/teacher conferences. At these virtual meetings, you can discuss with your child's teacher how Q1 went and how to support your child transitioning into Q2.

Next Monday, we will be sending home a survey regarding reopening. Most of you filled out a similar form prior to school opening in August. However, I know opinions about whether you want your child to participate in the hybrid schedule or remote only may have changed. I want to note, and will explain more in a video next week, remote learning during Q2 will not look like it has in Q1. If you are considering remote only for Q2 (and further), please make sure to watch the video so you know what to expect.

As always, we are here for questions, concerns, and support. Please contact the office if you need anything. Thank you to everyone for your grace, patience, and teamwork during this time!

Note on School Messenger- It's the same code for all districts and schools. ie: if you have students in another school you'll receive messages from both schools on the same text number. Ours will start off with "GAA Families" or "GAA Mustangs"- something like that so you know it's from us 📱😉

We also recommend saving our school phone number in your phone so you know it's us calling 480-325-6100
