Week of January 20th - 24th

Phoenix Zoo Field Trip

We had a wonderful time last Friday at the Phoenix Zoo! We were able to snap this quick group photo. THANK YOU to our chaperones: Mr. Dunigan, Mrs. Smoot, Mrs. Popham, Mrs. Hardy, Mr. Tracksler and Mrs. Lara.

Guest Reader

We had the incredible privileged of having Scarlett's Day, Mr. Perez, read to our class today.

Mr. Perez is in the Army and has been stationed overseas. He returned home earlier this month after 9 months away. He read a story called Hero Dad. We were able to ask questions and give Mr. Perez letters we wrote in class.

Leadership Day

Our school has an upcoming Leadership Day on February 27th at 8:30 a.m. This event will showcase the incredible culture of student empowerment we have at Auxier with the Leader in Me program.

We hope that our Leadership Day will allow Auxier more opportunities to build partnerships with our community members, businesses and families.
