A Message from our Principal

Dear AJ Mitchell Families,

Thank you for all your support with getting your child to school for our English assessment last month. This week we have Galileo testing in 1st-5th grade. Students who earn a 70% or better will get a no uniform coupon next week for being successful on the test. 

We are kicking off our Multiplication Facts Challenge. Students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade will take a multiplication test every Wednesday. Students who pass their test will get a no uniform coupon each time they pass! Please support us by having your child study their math facts for 10 minutes each evening. 

We only have 20 more days until AIMS and Stanford 10 assessments; these assessments determine our school label. Currently AJM is a “C” school. We need your support in raising our school label. You can help us by ensuring that your child attends school daily and does his/her homework.  

Please schedule your child’s Parent Teacher Conference. Conferences are Thursday, March 6, 2014. Due to conferences, we have early release on Thursday, March 6, 2014, at 11:15 a.m. and Friday, March 7, 2014, at 12:30 p.m. 

Nogales Unified School District has kindergarten registration February 24, 2014, to March 7, 2014.
