Teachers of the Year in a Parade, Student with a Pinch pot, kids dressed up in colorful wigs

Second quarter was full of great learning and school activities.  We started off with fall break then jumped right into the month of October.  This month’s awareness involved Learning Disabilities. 

This is a time where people pay special attention to children and adults with learning disabilities. During this month, our department showcased students work.  They sought out Ash Fork School staff and would talk to them about their masterpiece.  The most fun came from Mrs. Tasha’s Art Class.  Pinch pots were made & paper plate activities were assembled.  

During this month we also join the Halloween Carnival.  K-12 students attended and students were also allowed to dress up at school.  Mr. Martin directed the high school classes and they put on the Carnival for all. IT WAS A BLAST!!!

Our department also participated in the town light parade.  Special Services Department Team and their families came together to create our “Feliz Navidad” float.  Our float was packed!!!! AND we won the “Best Holiday Spirit” trophy.  YAY!!!! Can’t wait until next year!!!

Our school was invited by Yavapai County Education Foundation to Participate in the Christmas Parade in Prescott.  They showcased the “Teachers of the Year” float driven by Yavapai County Superintendent, Tim Carter. The teachers from Ash Fork Schools were Deborah Redig, Diane Rudnick, Erika Acosta, and Evelina Acosta.   -- Congratulations Ladies!!!

Special Education finished second quarter with great success!!! We’ve completed ¾ of our IEP case load and over 22 evaluations.   Our administration and school board members are very supportive.  They recognize the needs of our students. We are thankful to them for doing what’s best for our school.  We would also like to thank our teachers, parents, students, and staff - for your understanding and support!!
