Student Drop-Off and Pick-Up Reminders
When dropping off and picking up students in front of the school please make sure you pull up in front of the crosswalk before opening your car doors. Please do not stop in the crosswalk as we need to keep it clear for pedestrians. If you are walking your student to the main gate, please use the crosswalk. A staff member will be on duty to safely walk you across. Safety first!
An Important Note from Nurse Joy:
Just a reminder that NO MEDICATION is to be carried on our campus by a student. It must be brought to nurse's office and appropriate documents are to be signed before I can medicate. Thank you for helping to keep Pima a safe campus for students!
Pima will be hosting an AZMerit Night on Thursday, March 7th from 6:00 – 7:00 pm for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade parents. Staff will present how to use best practices on the 2019 AZMerit tests coming up in April. Staff will present in the library and 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders will go to assigned classrooms for their presentations. If you need to bring your Pima Kdg., 1st, or 2nd grade child, we will have activities and popcorn available for them.
It has been a privilege to work with teachers, administrators, curriculum specialists and parents to review materials and provide a recommendation to the SUSD Governing Board for the adoption of new K-12 math curricula. We want to thank everyone who served and supported this productive committee. On Feb. 12, the Governing Board approved the following materials: Cengage Math in grades K-5, Curriculum Associates in grades 6-8, Pearson in high school Math, and Pathways for high school Algebra 2. We look forward to full implementation, including professional development and support for our teachers so we can continue to teach mathematics with excellence in SUSD.

SUSD was proud to host dedication ceremonies this month at our newly rebuilt Pima Traditional and Hopi Elementary schools. These renovated campuses fully embrace the way students learn and the way teachers teach. And they’re equipped with technological resources not even imagined 60 years ago, when those schools first opened. Take a look at the new Pima and Hopi!
