A Universe of Stories

School break doesn’t have to mean a break from learning! You can join us at local libraries, as well as other community locations, to sign up for some fun summer activities to keep your child’s brain active. This year’s summer reading program is A Universe of Stories. Through this program, your child can earn a free book by reading 20 minutes a day, participate in challenges, and attend library or community events. You can view our flyer to learn more about the summer reading program, as well as find details about times and locations for our pre-registration event. We hope to see you and your child there!

AzMERIT Success

Estrella Vista STEM Academy finished testing! AzMERIT 2019 was a huge success due to community collaboration. Nearly 100% of our students were tested this year. Thank you students, teachers, and parents for your contributions to success. This year, there were a few hiccups as problems surfaced with our Chromebook laptops. As we sent notifications about the modifications to testing as a result, everyone was highly cooperative. I’d like to recognize our testing coordinator, Mr. Bryant for his outstanding work during AzMERIT. Not only did he keep us updated, but he supported teachers and administered make-up assessments on a daily basis. All of the planning and organization led to a super productive assessment season!
