Hózhó Academy Newsletter
For the week of November 7th - 11th, 2022
Dear Hózhó Families,
It's been a great start to Native American History Month with students and staff celebrating the Native American culture at school. Reminder, there will be NO SCHOOL this Friday, November 11th in honor of Veteran's Day. If you have not received your child’s report card by the end of this week, please reach out to the office and we will resend one.
Veteran's Day - We are asking families to send in a photocopy or photo we can keep of a Veteran related to your Hózhó student. We will display these photos in our front office in honor of Veteran's Day. There will be a special program at the assembly on November 10th.
Please refer to our online handbook for information on Hózhó Academy's policies and procedures.
If you have questions, please reach out to our front office at (505) 722-8922.

Support Hózhó Academy through Amazon Smile
What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a simple way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. To shop at AmazonSmile, simply go to smile.amazon.com on your web browser or activate AmazonSmile on your Amazon Shopping app on your iOS or Android phone (found under settings on your app).
How to generate AmazonSmile donations
The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible smile.amazon.com purchases. Tens of millions of products are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages at smile.amazon.com or with AmazonSmile ON in the Amazon Shopping app. Recurring Subscribe & Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible to generate donations.
Remember, only purchases made at smile.amazon.com, (not www.amazon.com) or with AmazonSmile turned ON in the Amazon Shopping app on your mobile phone will generate AmazonSmile donations.
How to activate AmazonSmile on your iPhone or Android
Step 1: Join AmazonSmile
If you aren’t yet an AmazonSmile member, sign up at smile.amazon.com using a web browser (mobile or desktop). You’ll sign in with your Amazon credentials, and the site will walk you through the process.
Amazon will ask you to choose your favorite charity. This is where you search for and choose “Aequitas Education”
Step 2: Open the Amazon Shopping app on your phone
If you don’t have the app already, download it from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
Step 3: Open Settings within the app
Open Settings by tapping the three horizontal lines (aka the “hamburger”) at the top left and tapping “Settings.”
Step 4: Tap AmazonSmile
Step 5: Tap the button for “Turn on AmazonSmile”
You’ll need to follow the three-step setup process. Note that Amazon requires you to turn on notifications to be able to use AmazonSmile on your phone.
Step 6: Make note of your renewal date
Amazon asks that you renew your AmazonSmile donation every six months. This is easy but required. When six months are up, you’ll have to choose your favorite charity again. If you don’t, purchases made until you do will not count.
Step 7: Confirm that AmazonSmile is active before your next purchase
Look for AmazonSmile at the top of the app as you browse. You’ll also see your chosen charity on the confirmation screen.
