We partnered with Equality Health, the Herozona Foundation and other community organizations, to offer Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines to our South Phoenix families. Anyone 12 and older was able to receive the shot between 3 and 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 13 in the C.O Greenfield gym. Families were also able to pick up a food box. More than 700 students and families participated in the event. Through this partnership, we are planning several more vaccination events over the summer at both Julian and Valley View schools. More information is available in English and Spanish for the community.
On May 5, gifted program students and families, teachers, and staff gathered on Zoom to showcase some of the projects our gifted students completed this year. The students also spoke about their experience and answered questions for prospective gifted programming families.
Operation School Bell provided uniforms and personal items for students at 17 of our schools including: (2) uniforms in approved school colors, socks and shoes, sweatshirts, hygiene kits and a new book. More than 1,500 students received these items as part of the donation, coordinated by head FACE Coordinator Rose Rodriguez.
