Yearbook Sparks New Interest in Students

History is being made at CAS! This is the first year that students will have a yearbook, and have creative input on the structure and aesthetics of the yearbook. Although nothing is set in stone just yet, members of the yearbook club have said they’ve made it very student friendly and want it to feel like every class has their own unique trait. In previous years, CAS has not had a yearbook only adding to the excitement for the new addition to our school. Julie Mendoza, Senior, said “I love that each class gets to choose characteristics for the yearbook that seems really fun.” Mendoza also mentions that she feels like many other students will enjoy the way that the yearbook will be constructed around them. Mrs. Hughes, Journalism and Yearbook teacher said “I’m just hoping that this year’s yearbook captures the enthusiasm and pizazz of the CAS community.

The yearbook should highlight all that CAS has to offer, especially the great things our students have accomplished and been a part of throughout the school year.” Mrs. Hughes has mentioned that yearbook is off to a great start and hopes that the first CAS yearbook will set an example for many yearbooks to come. If you have any suggestions for yearbook themes and ideas or are seeking advice, please visit the suggestion box in the front office.

CAS is Awarded the 21st Century Grant

CAS logoThe Center for Academic Success is proud and excited to announce that we have been awarded the 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant for our high school.  This is in addition to the program we have had at the elementary and middle school for the past six years.  This grant will assist us in providing opportunities before and after the regular academic school day.  We are extending our school day from 7:00am to 5:00pm.  These extended hours will allow our students opportunities to receive additional assistance with their regular classes, tutoring or homework help. It will also provide opportunities to catch up on classes or move ahead in their studies. We will also provide enrichment clubs and activities to include; Robotics, Wall Art, Yearbook, Zumba, Solar Go Cart, and many more.  We invite parents and students to take advantage of this opportunity where we can continue to provide a safe, secure supervised learning environment, both before and after school.

CAS Sierra Vista Schools marked the end of the school year last week with two days of summer fun.  On Thursday, May 21st, the High School Student Council hosted a Field Day for their fellow students featuring activities ranging from tug of war and flag team tag to water balloon tosses.

The Elementary School held its own Field Day the following morning.  Students participated in sack races, cooled off with wading pool games and a watermelon eating contest, and climbed through a “bounce house” specially brought in for the event.
