Wright Flight Fly Day!

Civano Community School Wright Flight Program Fly Day is this Saturday, April 21, 2018! This remarkable group of students has worked hard to set and achieve goals, studied for and passed many tests, and attended every meeting. They have earned the right to fly!! If you see a light aircraft in the air Saturday morning, look up and wave!!

AzMerit Assessment

Students in third grade through high school will take the AzMerit assessment in April. This assessment will be computer-based. Students will be tested in ELA (writing & reading) and math.

Attendance is very important. Unless there is an emergency or your child is sick, please make sure your child is on time to school and stays until dismissal. Once your child begins a portion of the test, he/she cannot exit the test until all of the questions have been answered.

Remaining AzMerit Testing Schedule

  • April 18th 4th Grade Science
  • April 19th Lower School Reading & Math Part 2 (3rd- 4th grade)

How Parents Can Help

  • Ensure your child has eaten a healthy breakfast and is rested for testing day.
  • Ensure that your child arrives to school on time and stays until dismissal.
  • Encourage your child to give his or her best effort and to maintain a positive attitude.
