Dear Pirate Families,
I am thrilled to share some exciting news with you. Once again, Norterra Canyon school has earned an "A" as our letter grade from the Arizona Department of Education.
As a staff, we want to extend our sincere thanks to you, our dedicated Pirate families. Your unwavering support, encouragement, and collaboration continue to be an essential part of our success, and we are truly grateful for your partnership.
I would also like to acknowledge and celebrate our entire Pirate staff. They have cultivated a learning culture at our school with high expectations, innovation, and a commitment to excellence. Their passion for education and your children's growth is truly remarkable, and it is a privilege to work alongside such exceptional professionals.
Last but certainly not least, our students deserve to be celebrated! Let's give them a round of applause for the perseverance, grit, and growth mindset they demonstrate each and every day in our classrooms. We are immensely proud of you!
