Our next school dance will be Friday, February 19th from 4:00-6:30. It is a semi-formal themed dance where we encourage our students to dress up a little! The cost at the door is $5 or free with Event Card. Event cards will still be available at the door for $10. Snacks and pizza will be available inside for purchase, and a DJ will be there to provide the entertainment. We hope to see all our students there!
Spring pictures will be on February 16th at Cooley.
Applications may be turned in at the campus you wish your child to attend.
CMS Athletics Banner Fundraiser
The CMS Athletics Department is selling advertising banners to generate funds to support the athletic program. The banners are white vinyl and measure 4 feet tall by 8 feet long. These banners can be customized using your company's logo and information. The banners will be printed in vibrant color and will be displayed all year long at a Cooley sports venue. This is a great way to promote your business while supporting Cooley Athletics. If you are interested in purchasing a banner, contact Mr. Josh Vanderflught at email@example.com or 480-279-8300.
AZ Merit Update
In Spring 2015, Higley Unified School District and schools across Arizona administered the first AzMERIT assessments. These assessments were designed to cover language arts and math.
Over the last few weeks, districts, schools and parents received results. Several different reports are available to help families understand the results. The district has put together an AzMERIT Parent Resource page to provide additional information.
To use ParentVue, parents need a personal code created by their student’s school. Please visit your school office for more information.
