SJUSD Community, Just by way of information, we had one of our buses go off the road this morning. No students were on the bus at the time, and the bus driver walked away from it with no injuries. Our mechanics are currently working on the bus and we hope to have it up and running again soon.
The Honor Choir concert will start at 7pm tonight. See you there!
THANK YOU SJUSD! Now that election results are final, we wanted to thank all of you who voted to keep the DAA override in place in our district. We feel so fortunate to be a part of a community that has always been so supportive of our schools. We will continue to use this money in ways that benefit students and keeps our schools great. Thank you!!

We all love our schools Thanksgiving dinner!
Below is information from SRP regarding an event they will be hosting at the SJMS tomorrow. "We’re pleased to notify you that Salt River Project (SRP) will be hosting an informational open house expo later this month for community members to learn about SRP’s Coal Communities Transition efforts, which includes the Coronado Generating Station (CGS) Repurposing Study. The event will be held at the St. Johns Middle School cafeteria, 555 W. 7th St. S., St. Johns, AZ on October 25, 2022 from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Please come anytime. This is an open house format, there is no formal presentation. CGS is scheduled to be retired no later than 2032. SRP seeks to support impacted communities as they endeavor to develop sustainable and strategic local economies. As part of this effort, SRP has launched the CGS Repurposing Study. The study is examining technologies to determine which, if any, could offer viable alternatives to coal generation. This is the first step in the process of identifying options and planning for the future.
Our thoughts and hearts are with the Jensen family. As many of you may be aware, our sweet Aaliyah has passed away. To offer support to her family and friends, we are asking that all of our staff and students wear pink tomorrow. Aaliyah was only with our Coronado family for a short time, but she has had a great impact on us all and she will be greatly missed. #Aaliyahstrong

Community Event in 1 week!
SHOUT OUT TO OUR SCHOOL BOARD AND OUR STAFF! Each Fall, the state releases accountability measures for every school in the state. These two graphs show the percentage of St. Johns' students scoring over a specific proficiency rate in comparison to the percentage of students in the rest of the state who scored over those same proficiency rates in both English Language Arts (ELA) and Math for school year 2021-2022. As you can see, we have some amazing teachers and staff members who work tirelessly to help students succeed. Thank you teachers and staff! As these numbers have been released, many school administrators around the state have noted the "learning loss" that occurred during Covid-19 due to all the disruptions to students' learning (e.g. schools closing, schools modifying schedules, the uncertainty of what schools would do week to week, etc.). We are so grateful for a school board that found ways to keep students safe while also keeping them in school with limited disruptions throughout the pandemic. Our students have benefited from that! Thank you school board: Brent Overson, Eve Patterson, Delos Bond, Leslie Wenhardt, and Dave Eisley.
