  • Community Ed – September 2023

    Posted by SUSD Communications on 9/1/2023

    The mission of SUSD is to inspire, motivate, and empower all to think critically, act collaboratively, and embrace diversity for a life of intellectual exploration, community engagement, and personal growth.

    As part of that mission, SUSD offers a variety of out-of-school-day programming that enables students to develop latent talents, interests, and strengths. STEM, art, engineering, coding, drama, and music classes are offered at many of our schools, enabling our students to take a deeper dive into subjects that expand their knowledge and foster creativity.

    Besides offering opportunities to build intellectual strength, SUSD offers many sports classes to keep our students physically strong, as well. After-school sports opportunities are offered throughout the district and include golf, tennis, soccer, and even pickleball. Not to be left out of the fun, parents and the community may participate in one of our fast-paced community pickleball clinics, too. These clinics are offered at three of our middle school campuses: Tonalea, Mohave, and Cocopah, and are a great way to learn this fun, new sport and meet your neighbors.

    For more information about after-school classes at our elementary and middle schools, visit SUSD’s Enrichment Zone or check with your school’s office.

    Want to know more about our community pickleball clinics? Find more information here or all 480.484.7909.
