Waiting For The Ester Bunny!
Hello Phoenix Families,
Last week, we enjoyed a wonderful Poetry night where our students presented their wonderful original creations. See pictures of the event below.
Tomorrow night, Hersh, Ryan, and Alex will be honored at the Board meeting for their wonderful accomplishment winning the Congressional App Challenge. Our fantastic educator, Mrs. Sandoval will also be honored for going "Above and Beyond" during this Mid Cycle WASC visit. They will be honored at the beginning of the meeting, promptly at 5:30. Please join me in congratulating these incredible members of the Phoenix family.
This week finds us finalizing our graduation speaker, preparing for prom, and welcoming our incoming students by meeting with them to develop their education plan. Our busy journey to the end of the year continues!
Have a wonderful Easter weekend, Phoenix families!
