Message From the Principal

Dear CCR Parents,

I hope that you and your family had a wonderful spring break.  It’s hard to believe that we are in our last quarter of school for the 2015-2016 school year.  Your children have worked really hard this year and we are hopeful that they will all do great on the state’s AzMerit Testing this year.  

The days that we will be testing this year are: 

3rd-8th Grade Reading, Writing & Math Testing

·         Tuesday, March 29, 2016 (Writing)

·         Monday, April 4, 2016 (Reading and Math Part I)

·         Tuesday, April 5, 2016 (Reading and Math Part II)

4th & 8th Grade Science Testing

·         Tuesday, April 19, 2016

 I also wanted to give you an update on our 3-Year STEM IMPLEMENTATION PLAN.  Please note that CCR K-8 STEM Academy will not have mandatory student uniforms until Year 3, due to the recent district consolidation.  FUSD is taking over 3 Coolidge schools and Dr. Fuller has requested that we wait one more year to implement uniforms due to the new high school boundaries changing. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the front office.


Rebecca Hendry
