  • District considering Mandarin Immersion preschool
     
    The Higley Unified School District is exploring the option of offering a Mandarin Immersion preschool class for the 2016-17 school year at Cooley Early Childhood Development Center, 1100 S. Recker Road, Gilbert. The program would be open to Kinder Prep/preschool students who would be enrolling in kindergarten the following school year (2017-18). Like the Mandarin Immersion program at Coronado Elementary School, the class  would be co-taught by two teachers, including one who is a native Mandarin speaker and one who teaches in English.
     
    Studies have found that students who begin learning a second language at a younger age develop stronger language skills, as well as have an easier time in language acquisition of both English and the second language.
     
    If you are interested in learning more about this program, please complete the interest form.

  • ParentVue
     
    Parents can see student grades and attendance records through a system called “ParentVue.” Teachers post assignments and grades, along with daily attendance, on the system that can then be viewed by parents through a home computer or cell phone. Teachers post links to ParentVue (sometimes referred to as "Online grades") through their teacher webpages. You can also reach ParentVue through this link.

    To use ParentVue, parents need a personal code created by their student’s school. Please visit your school office for more information.
