  • Year End Reminders

    To Williams Field Parents,

    As the school year begins to wind down, I would like to take this opportunity to remind our shared community of common expectations for the learning environment.

    Food and Drink

    For reasons of students safety as well as maintaining a healthy learning environment, students are only permitted to bring bottled water into the classrooms and on campus.

    Deliveries will no longer be accepted for food or drink items.  In order to ensure a safe and sanitary environment that supports and maintains the health and welfare of all of our students, they are welcome to pack a lunch or purchase a prepared meal. 

    As a reminder, our high school is a closed campus.  Please visit with your student about what that means in terms of not being able to leave the school, unless checked out by a parent or guardian, during their school day.  Once a student arrives on campus, they are required to stay on campus until their school day comes to a close.

    Dress Code

    We encourage students to take pride in their attire as it relates to the school setting.  Students should dress in a manner that, in addition to the following guidelines, takes into consideration the educational environment, safety, health, and welfare of self and others.  Clothing that immodestly exposes the chest, abdomen, midriff, genital area, or buttock is not permitted. Clothing may not display or suggest obscene language or symbols. Clothing may not display or advertise alcohol, drugs, tobacco, or any illegal or controlled substance or item. 

    Please ensure that your student dresses appropriately for school success. Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter.

    Student Attendance and Participation

    Attendance and participation in class are key to student success.  For these reasons, we ask that you ensure your student is here, ready to learn every day.  Interruptions to instruction will be minimal and we ask that students utilize passing periods or lunch time for personal business.  To this end, students will be asked to keep backpacks safely stored under their seats and cell phones away during class time. 

    Please let me know if you have any questions as we head into the final weeks of the semester.

     

    Respectfully,

    Dr. Terri Wattawa

    Principal

    Williams Field High School

  • AZMerit Testing

    The state of Arizona has moved from AIMS testing to end of the year assessments.  This new testing has been labeled AZMERIT or Arizona's Measurement of Educational Readiness to Inform Teaching. This was adopted because of the new standards that our State Board adopted back in 2010.  AZMerit tests, for high school students, are end of course tests which eventually will count as part of a student's grade in the course.  This test is designed to let teachers, students, as well as parents, know how your child is doing and indicate if they are on track for college and career readiness.   This test is a computer based assessment, however in order to accommodate all freshmen through junior students taking Math and English, a special schedule was created. Tuesday, March 29th, will begin our first full day of testing.  Please click on the following link to see the AZMerit Testing Schedule for March 2016 and April 2016.  AZ Merit Calendar

     Below are a few frequently asked questions:

    • How does testing affect my child?
      • This assessment will be given to students in grades 9-11 taking High School English and Math only.  AZMERIT, based on the new standards, will inform teachers, students, and parents if students are on track to be college and career ready upon graduation from high school.  The goal of the State is to eventually utilize these assessments as end of course assessments, as they are based on our standards. 
    • What are you doing to prepare my child for this test?
      • This assessment will be given to students in grades 9-11 taking High School English and Math only.   AZMERIT, based on the new standards, will inform teachers, students, and parents if students are on track to be college and career ready upon graduation from high school.  The goal of the State is to eventually utilize these assessments as end of course assessments, as they are based on our standards.
    • The block schedule you've created, how does it affect students attending EVIT?
      • Testing will take precedence.  If an EVIT student has completed his/her assessment prior to the end of testing and can still make the bus, they can leave; however, there will be no late bus available.  Given the importance of this test, we do encourage students to take their time during testing.
    • What if my son or daughter is absent?
      • Make up days have been built into the schedule.  Every Monday we will contact students from the previous week that missed assessments.   As our testing window is open until April 15th, we will utilize until the last week of April to finish testing any student who is absent.  
    • I have additional questions, who can I contact?

    Feel free to call 480.279.8013 for further details.
