2017 Teacher of the Year
A Big Congratulations goes out to Mr. Kerry Reeder, who was celebrated this week as the Williams Field Teacher of the Year. Kerry is an extremely hard working, and committed, member of the Black Hawk Nation, and is more than deserving of this recognition. In addition to being a gifted classroom teacher, who builds positive and productive rapport with students in his AVID, Psychology, and Sociology classes, Kerry makes huge contributions outside of the classroom, as the freshman football and varsity softball coach, to positively impact the entire student body. Teaching Professionals like Mr. Reeder embody the Higley Unified School District mission: Connect, Engage, and Inspire. Thank you Kerry for all you do for Williams Field High School, and the Black Hawk Nation.

Summer School opportunities are nowavailable for sign-up.

Notice Regarding Deliveries to Students
This year you may have noticed a change in our office policy regarding deliveries to students. In order to minimize the disruptions to instruction, we have restricted deliveries for students to items that are essential to the educational process. Classes will not be interrupted for businesses delivering items such as flowers, birthday items, pizza, etc.. Parents will need to contact their students and wait for them to come to the office between classes to receive any item brought for them including, but not limited to lunch money, homework, or PE clothing. The front office will not be responsible for delivering items to students or storing the items. We appreciate your understanding of this change made for safety and fidelity to instruction. Thank you

Black Hawk Walk
Leave your name on the path to greatness by purchasing a commemorative brick that will be installed at the Williams Field High School football stadium. These bricks will begin at the entrance to the field and continue over time to fill the walkway around the stadium. We greatly appreciate your support and help to show how BLACK HAWKS DOMINATE!
Please keep the following Attendance policies in mind:
If a student leaves campus without being signed out at the front office they will remain unexcused even if a parent calls the office.
Late students will only be excused if documentation is provided. A tardy will remain unexcused even if a parent signs the student in. Any tardies resulting in After School Detention assignment (ASD) will be handled by the front desk staff rather than the attendance office.
Any calls made to the auto dialer take 24 hours to process. Please be patient.
