• Aztec S.T.E.M. Club is working hard to earn the funds for the trip to Biosphere 2, Mt Lemmon Observatory, and the University of Arizona campus. It is a wonderful opportunity to expose students to a wide variety of scientific and engineering fields with some hands on in an amazing setting.

Sadly, several of our fundraising projects were derailed by the tragic events at school in December. We are working hard to recover, but need help to reach our goal of $4800. Each $400 sponsors one 'future engineer.' If you can donate, or know someone who can donate to our cause, please contact Laura Hays at 505.334.9414 or [email protected]

Keep At Home Please!


Students are beginning to bring the "spinners" or better known as fidgets to school. These are very distracting in a classroom setting. Fidgets are allowed if students have accommodations via an IEP or 504 Plan and specific fidgets must be approved by the IEP or 504 Team. We appreciate you cooperation in keeping these items at home.

FROM THE HEALTH OFFICE - Remember if your child has temperature over 100 or is vomiting please keep him/her home. Because there are so many illnesses going around, we are requiring students to be fever/vomit free for 24 hours before returning to school.
