Dear Parents/Guardians:

What a week! We are so happy to see our teachers and students back on campus, ready to finish the year strong. There are only 13 school days left- they will be busy as we wrap up end of year projects, benchmarks, AP exams, and finals.

Last night was a historical night for the Pathway Pumas, as junior high baseball defeated ASU Prep to win their first ever state title! We are so proud of these boys, not just for their efforts on the field, but for their commitment to being scholar athletes and focusing on academics all throughout the season. Congratulations to Coach Braybrooks and the JH team!

Tomorrow night is another big night for Puma Athletics as our Varsity Baseball team competes for their 2nd state title, playing ALA Gilbert in Surprise on Saturday at 6pm. If you’re able to make the drive, we’d love to have as much support as possible at the game.

Monday May 7th is an important day- grades 7-12 will begin benchmark testing, and the AP Psychology exam will take place at noon. Benchmarks continue through Thursday, and the AP Literature and Composition exam will take place on Wednesday at 8am.

Next week a letter will be sent home to families with details of the finals week schedule; finals for grades 7-11 will take place May 16th and 17th.
