Campo Verde’s AFJROTC competition drill team (a varsity sport) joined 11 other schools on Saturday January 25th, for the annual “Padre Skills Match” at Marco de Niza High School. The Skills match consists of competition drill and ceremonies, marching, color guard competition, personal inspections and knowledge quizzes, as well as physical fitness tests.

Campo’s JROTC (AZ-951) entered teams in four events: 10-person armed and 10-person unarmed regulation drill competition, color guard competition, and personal inspection/knowledge quizzing. The competition was fierce, as it always is, and nerves were tight. During the awards ceremonies, the team was pleased to learn that the weeks of early morning (A-hour, 6:30am – 7:25am) practice in the dark and cold had aid off! Campo placed third in color guard competition and placed FIRST in 10-person unarmed regulation drill!!

The next competion for AZ-951 will be the Sons of the American Legion West-Mitchell-Workman Invitational Drill Meet on Saturay, February 15th, at the Barry Goldwater Air National Guard Base at Sky Harbor International Airport. It will start at 8:00 AM. Come on out and support our teams!

Our Outstanding Student Council of Distinction

AP Exam Ordering Deadline

The final deadline to make any changes to your AP exam(s) is February 28th. This includes additions and cancellations, both with a $40 LATE fee per exam. For example, if your student marked "no" to an exam originally, but would now like to take the exam, he or she has until February 28th to sign up and pay with a $40 late fee per exam. Also, if you your student marked "yes" and paid for an exam and now no longer wants to take it, he or she has until February 28th to change their answer to "no" and get refunded $58 of the $98 per exam. Any cancellations after the 28th will result in no refund.

For those students in AP Microeconomics or AP Government this semester, since it is a semester class, there are no late fees. Students in this scenario can elect to take the exam in College Board and make their payment here: until February 28th.

Library News


The month of January is National Hobby Month. The library made a display that showcased numerous nonfiction books for students to learn about new hobbies or gain more skills on hobbies they already enjoy. It included books on cooking, photography, guitar playing, yoga, drawing and more.

The Book Club helped Mrs. Flaherty create another display in the library. The students called it a “Pick Me” display. They are all books that the members of the Book Club recommend. They are titles not everyone has heard of, but are promised to be good reads. As books are picked off of the display by students to read, Book Club members and other avid readers fill up the openings with more recommendations.

Digital Citizenship:

It’s common for teenagers to multitask while they are doing homework. They could be listening to music and texting friends all while working on their homework. However, “Productivity suffers when switching rapidly between different tasks because the brain has to re-focus every time it switches to a new activity.” Read the article, Should I be concerned about my teen's constant multitasking during homework? for more information on the topic.
