Now that we are in the 2nd Quarter the academic rigor is in full swing, and students are expected to maintain, or upgrade their attention towards their goals. We, as an 8th grade team are pushing for high school readiness, which means students are being exposed to more than the 3-R’s, they will be taking trips to the local high schools for a presentation of all that Phoenix Union has to offer, and there are a variety of programs and opportunities for students to thrive at the next level.

Please be assured that the next few months will fly by and be full of activity and opportunity for success.
