Aztec High School

BEGINNING MONDAY, JAN. 22, ALL STUDENTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO WEAR THEIR STUDENT ID’S whenever on campus. Each students will receive a free Aztec Strong lanyard this week, but any lanyard or clip which enables them to wear their ID will be acceptable. Students will not be allowed to sit in classes without the ID. If they forget their ID, they will need to report to the Dean’s office. From there, they will have several options to get back into class.

We are also preparing for a trip to the Thespian Festivals in February and we are need of chaperones for the trip. We will also be needing extra hands for the upcoming show, if you know of anyone who loves to sing and act please spread the word.

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]

Park Ave. Elementary


Tiger Time is Park Avenue’s intervention or enrichment block. This occurs Tuesday-Friday from 2:30pm-3:00pm. Students may rotate to different teachers based on their specific need. During this time teachers are engaging students in targeted activities in Math and ELA.


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.
