  • Lobo Literacy Club

    Who said school's out? It sure isn't for the curious crew at Global Academy of Phoenix! Diane Hernandez, Jr. High Language and Literacy Teacher, couldn't resist her persuasive students when they begged for more time and learning with her, so she created the Lobo Literacy Club! 
     
    Each week during the summer the club holds virtual meetings to discuss what they've read and share thoughts. They also enjoy activities relating to whales and the hearing impared, since these are focal topics of their first book. Connected activities include creating blackout art, exploring the world of whales, researching whale conservation centers, and learning sign language. But that's not all! Mrs. Hernandez is scheduling virtual meetings with whale conservationists and American Sign Language experts. Wow! 
     
    Want to get in on the fun? Check out this recording of whales: http://www.oceanmammalinst.org/songs.html or try your hand at blackout art: copy a page from a book or magazine, select certain words to create a poem, and blackout everything else! Check out this very cool example!

  • The Alhambra Elementary School District wants to ensure students and staff stay healthy this flu season. Because protection from all respiratory viruses, including the flu and Coronavirus, is similar, we want to share preventative measures to help stop the spread of any respiratory virus.  Please view our letter to parents on how to keep your children healthy.  Also, if students are running a fever of 100.0 or higher, they should stay home until he/she is fever-free for at least 24 hours.  Thank you for helping to maintain a healthy learning environment for students and staff.

  • 2020 Census...Be Counted!

    Every 10 years, the United States Census counts everyone living in the United States; and this determines the amount of funding each state receives from the federal government.

    During the weeks of March 12-20, 2020, every household will receive an invitation to participate in the Census. Be sure to respond to the Census, and remember to count every person in your home.  You can respond to the Census online or by using your mobile device, by phone, or by mail.

    Responses to the Census are safe, secure, and protected by federal law. Your answers can only be used to produce statistics, and cannot be used by any government agency or court including the FBI, CIA, DHS, and ICE.  The only questions asked are simple questions like age, gender, and the number of people living in your home, including children.

    Be sure to respond to the Census when you receive your invitation.  In May, Census takers will begin visiting homes that have not responded to the Census to help make sure everyone is counted.  If someone visits your home to collect information for the 2020 Census, check to make sure that they have a valid ID badge with their photograph, a U.S. Department of Commerce watermark, and an expiration date. Census workers may also carry Census Bureau bags and other equipment with the Census Bureau logo.

    Be counted and help shape the future of Arizona!

  • Students recently celebrated an integrated unit of the arts with Carnevale di Venezia (Venetian Carnival)! Under the guidance of Dr. Earl Simmons, students learned about Venice and its history, studied and designed their own Carnevale masks, explored 6/8 meter through music of the Renaissance, and danced "La Forlana" with great style! Talk about culture!

  • Our 8th grade teacher and STEM guru, Mayra Ramos, recently took her lucky students to tour and learn about ASU's state of the art solar lab. Students will use this experience to enhance their Agri-PV project, a collaboration with Dr. Michelle Jordan's ASU team. Students will plant, grow, and study food from around the world with the influence of solar integration. Talk about #goals! We're so grateful to ASU for this partnership and so proud of our risk-taking students!

  • Global Academy of Phoenix is collaborating with ASU Graduate Students for an innovative learning experience. ASU students introduced the practice of solar panels used with agriculture, otherwise known as AgriPV. During phase one of our AgriPV experience, students designed a variety of garden layouts with solar panel placements. As we move into phase 2 of the project, students will begin testing their designs and experimenting with growing methods. Ultimately, GAP students will be selecting a final design, building the structure, and nurturing their very own AgriPV garden! Check back soon for exciting updates on this ambitious project!
