What a wonderful start to the new school year! Phoenix High School was given a facelift! Thank you so much to Stan, Chrissy and the entire WPUSD Maintenance Crew. The whole school was repainted. This has not happened since…. forever and it looks beautiful. We also got a really nice new fence, and a new Phoenix High School sign (three in fact!) The office has new wallpaper and flooring, and Mrs. Hackbarth should be getting a new desk shortly! She is so excited. Room 6 (Mr. Nelson), Room 7 (Mr. Alcorn) and Room 8 (NINA’s Art Room) all got new flooring and wallpaper AND MUCH MORE. They are beautiful. Please stop by for a tour if you haven’t seen it.
Phoenix and ATLAS have quite a few trips planned already this year. They are going to be fabulous. Next week is the first trip. Mr. Nelson and Mr. Salinger will be taking students to Yosemite camping. In a couple of weeks they will be going on the road to Utah to camp at both Bryce and Zion National Parks. Check out the ATLAS website for updates and photos! (http://atlas.wpusd.k12.ca.us/)
The students showed up in force on the first day of school, and we are really proud of the positive start. Some Sun City SCHOOLS volunteers have already started with the bulk of the tutors starting next week (August 28).
Our resident artist, Nina will have her first art class tomorrow (Thursday, August 24) but we have been lucky enough to see her bright smile a few times already this year.
We have high expectations for a spectacular graduating class this year. Stay tuned as we have a few students who should graduate in the first semester.
Our bell schedule has changed this year. Please check it out on the “About Us” tab.
