Co-Host Community Time

If you would like to co-host Community Time with Lydia, please sign up for one of the slots on Sign-Up Genius. There is space for two students + Lydia each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday Morning. For right now, please only select only one date. We'll keep update availability in next week's newsletter. This is for ANY Grade and ANY Civano student!

The Having of Wonderful Ideas...

Next week's crew principle is "The Having of Wonderful Ideas."

What are you curious about?

What kind of big, interesting, audacious, "If I could do anything, I would do this" ideas do you have? could draw a picture or make art about The Having of Wonderful Ideas and share those with us next week during community time?!

Need Books?

Of course you do! And kids especially are missing out on the benefits of browsing through books and selecting their own reading material. To help support developing readers, the Pima County Library is assembling Book Bundles of 10 books for specific grade levels and reading interests. You can enjoy the books that interest you, ignore the ones that don't, and return any of the books whenever it suits you. You can request a Book Bundle at your favorite library branch and check it out with your library card.

And you can currently get a library card online! Visit for more info.

RETURNING Student Registration....

Online registration for the upcoming school year is now available! This process replaces the paper forms sent home at the beginning of each school year. You will use the PowerSchool Parent Portal to access the PowerSchool Registration.

How do I get started?

Click HERE to get to the PowerSchool Parent Portal (also available on the PowerSchool mobile app). Once logged in to the Parent Portal:

  1. Select the student you wish to register along the top tabs.
  2. Select the PowerSchool Registration Student Registration Icon on the left side for the 2020-2021 school year.
  3. Agree to the terms and conditions.
  4. Click Begin Forms.

I can’t remember my login for the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
If this is the first time you have ever logged into the PowerSchool Parent Portal please contact your school's front office to find out your user name and temporary password.

If you aren’t able to retrieve your login credentials using the “Having trouble signing in?” link on the Sign In page, please contact your school directly for assistance.

Do I have to answer all the questions?
Questions marked with "required" must be completed.

What if I make a mistake?
If you would like to make a change prior to submitting the form, you can either navigate back to the page using the “< Prev” and “Next >” buttons or if you are on the Review page click on the underlined field. If you have already submitted the form you will need to contact your student’s school so they can make the changes for you.

I’ve completed the form, now what?
Once you have finished entering your information click “Submit.” This will send all of the information you’ve entered to the school. If you cannot click on this button you will need to make sure that you have answered all required questions.

What if I have more than one student in the district? Do I need to do this for each child?
Yes, you will need to provide information that is specific to each child. Make sure to select each child from the top of your PowerSchool screen and then click on the PowerSchool Registration Student Registration link on the lower left hand side. We recommend that you complete and submit one form and then start another. This will allow you to snap (or share) selected family information, which saves you time.

Help! I’m on the PowerSchool Registration form and I’m having technical difficulties.
A link to Powerschool Enrollment Family Support can be accessed here. You can email support at or call PowerSchool phone support at 1-866-752-6850, Monday through Friday, 8-5 pm EST.
