AzMERIT test results will be sent home soon

Student test results for last year's AzMERIT tests will be sent home on or about October 21. Students in grades 3 through 11 were tested in the spring of 2015 on English language skills and math. AzMERIT is a new test, and this was our student's first exposure to its challenges.

Here are links to materials that will help you understand the AzMERIT score report your child will bring home. Our thanks to Mesa School District for making the video and brochure available to us.

Calvary Baptist Church was recognized at the 9/15/15 meeting of the Lake Havasu Unified governing board. Calvary recently completed a fundraising drive for our elementary schools, raising $2,426.67 for each school (a grand total of $14,560). Oro Grande principal Pat Wolfe spoke at the meeting, praising Calvary members for their efforts. In addition to fundraising, Mr. Wolfe explained how they read to students in the classrooms and allow students to read to them. They bring in food for staff members. "They smile. They laugh. They are everywhere and anywhere, and they never expect anything in return."

Also recognized at the meeting:

  • Ginny Sautner. Mrs. Sautner has been named Arizona Rural Schools Association Teacher of the Year for Mohave County.
  • Karen VanderJagt. Recognized for being named Teacher of the Year by the Arizona Republican Women's Convention.
