Character Counts

In addition to the development of students' intellectual and social skills, we firmly believe in the development of excellent character.  Part of becoming a responsible citizen is recognition of the rights of others, and of equal importance, the acceptance of one's actions.  Hale uses the six pillars of character as a tool to build character and to reinforce our campus code of conduct.  For the month of September, Hale will focus on the character quality, RESPECT.  (golden rule, tolerance and acceptance, nonviolence, courtesy to others)

AzMERIT, High Expectations and You

AzMERIT is the assessment given to third- through 11th-graders in Arizona that determines how students are learning based on Arizona's College and Career Ready Standards. In November 2014, the Arizona State Board of Education voted to replace AIMS with AzMERIT.  In Spring 2015, approximately 45,000 Mesa students took AzMERIT assessments in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math on computer or on paper. Parents are expected to receive their child's AzMERIT score report by November 2015.

We encourage the entire family to come join us in our walking endeavor. The family that exercises together gets healthier together. Come and enjoy the cool mornings while we walk or jog on the walking trail around our campus. There will be little "feet" given as rewards to our kids who walk a mile on our course. No sign up necessary Just meet on the field and grab a punch card to keep track of your miles. Can't wait to see you as we walk/jog our way to healthier bodies and minds.
