Hornsby Hawks Math Counts team sweeps the regional competition.


What is PTA Council? PTA Council is comprised of representatives from each PTA local unit (all schools in W-JCC) and an elected board of officers. The goals include, but not limited to: an advocacy group for all children in W-JCC, to provide any local units with assistance as the need arises, and act as a liaison between local units and Central Office Administrators. We are currently seeking nominations for the following PTA Council officers for the 2011-2012: President, 1st Vice President, 2nd Vice President, Treasurer, Recording Secretary and Corresponding Secretary. We are encouraging TEACHERS and PARENTS to step forward as both provide a unique perspective to education. If you are interested, please contact: Suzanne Yeats, suzanneyeats@cox.net or 480.529.1331.

If We Only Knew, If He Only Told Us

October 7, 2003 will always be the day that divides my life. Before that day my son Ryan was alive. A sweet, gentle and lanky thirteen year old fumbling his way through early adolescence and trying to establish his place in the often confusing and difficult social world of middle school. After that day my son would be gone forever, a death by suicide. Some would call it bullycide or even cyber bullycide. I just call it a huge hole in my heart that will never heal. MORE
