  • Bridges named AZ STEM School of Community Practice
     
    Higley Unified School District’s newest elementary school has been named an AZ STEM School Community of Practice.

    Bridges Elementary School joins 56 schools from across the state to collaborate with Maricopa Education Service Agency, Arizona  SciTech, Intel and the Arizona Science Center.

    “This is an amazing opportunity for our school community to learn from other innovative schools within the state. Many collaborative opportunities are planned throughout this next school year that will certainly put us on the road to excellence in terms of STEM,” Bridges Principal Sherry Richards said.
     
    STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

  • District to offer Mandarin Immersion preschool
     
    The Higley Unified School District will offer a Mandarin Immersion preschool class for the 2016-17 school year at Cooley Early Childhood Development Center, 1100 S. Recker Road, Gilbert. The program will be open to Kinder Prep students who will be enrolling in kindergarten the following school year (2017-18). Like the Mandarin Immersion program at Coronado Elementary School, the class will 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 contact the school at (480) 279-8400.

  • Support HUSD and receive up to $400 AZ Tax Credit
     
    The state of Arizona allows you to receive a tax credit of up to $200 ($400 if married and filing jointly) when you make an ECA tax credit donation to our school. We will use your tax dollar donation to help fund extra curricular activities and opportunities for our students to extend their learning beyond the regular school day and you will get a dollar-for-dollar credit towards your tax return. Before and after school tutoring, school clubs and field trip experiences are just a few of the enrichment programs that are made possible when ECA funds are donated to our school.  You may name any school as the recipient of your donation or list "undesignated" so that we may provide quality enrichment programs like these for our learners. We appreciate your support and are dedicated to spending your tax dollars responsibly.
     
    We THANK YOU for your tax credit donations.
     
    If you wish to make a donation, please click here for more information.
