We are coming to the end of our AZMERIT Testing. The final testing will take place April 22-23 with makeup days to follow.
Full testing schedule can be found HERE
This test is very important for each student and for our school. We cannot have disruptions during testing. Students will be asked to turn their cell phones off and place them in their backpacks during testing. Please do your best to allow your student to stay in school during testing. Please schedule appointments on non-testing days. We will not be able to interrupt classes that are testing to retrieve your student for check out.
We would also like our students to bring their earbuds to school to assist them taking the AZMERIT test. If they do not have them a set will be provided for them.
Our 8th grade Promotion Ceremony will be held on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at 7:00pm on the Maricopa High School Football field. It is open seating for all family and friends. Students will not be able to come to the ceremony with backpacks, balloons, flowers or any other items. Such items can be given to students after the ceremony.

If a student was/is suspended after April 5, 2019 for any infraction in accordance with the MUSD Secondary Student Handbook Code of Conduct or adhering to the Code of Conduct, they will not be permitted to participate in the Unification Ceremony. Please review our dress code expectations with your student. Our female students may wear spaghetti straps or strapless dresses, however, no undergarments should be visible and NO HIGH HEELS will be permitted on the football field.
