Community Engagement

Our schools are the cores of our community. They are places where families participate in or attend a multitude of activities including academic and athletic competitions, music, art and drama performances, fundraisers, field trips, and family nights. These activities promote a sense of unity, loyalty, and pride in each of our communities.

Many of our schools provide before and after school care. Kids Club is a licensed before and after school program administered by Scottsdale Unified School District’s participating schools. Early bird drop off begins at 6:30 a.m. and after school operates from school dismissal until 6:30 p.m.
