Fine Arts Virtual Festival

The AFUHSD Fine Arts Department is proud to celebrate the diverse talent and creative expression from the student artists who are part of the Agua Fria Union High School District community. Together we adapted to the many challenges presented during the 2020-2021 school year. Performing and Studio Arts flourished in new ways through content adaptations, connections to new technologies, and pure perseverance throughout the academic year. Considering all of the unpredictable challenges this school year, our students rose up and created spectacular and significant art.

Please take a moment to enjoy the students’ work by exploring the AFUHSD Fine Arts Virtual performances and art gallery exhibition website and sizzle reel video. Find your favorite performances and visual art pieces. Celebrate with the student artists and recognize their talents by sharing out their accomplishments through all types of social media.

Incomplete Improvement Contract

Last week in Advisory all students received information for an opportunity to improve Incomplete (I) marks earned during Spring 2020, Fall 2020, and 3rd Quarter 2021. We highly encourage students with Incompeltes to work with their teachers during class, Jaguar Success, and teacher office hours. Improving the Incompletes will prevent the students need for summer school -credit recovery.

Now is the time, register for summer school enrichment and credit recovery. Please contact your students school counselor to review and discuss the best options for your student.
