Welcome

Welcome to Continental School District, home of the Continental Colts! We are a small school district located in Green Valley, Arizona, approximately 20 miles south of Tucson, and 40 miles north of Nogales, Sonora, Mexico. There are many exciting and beautiful things to see here in our area of the desert southwest.

Our school serves around 550 students in preschool through 8th grade. We are very proud of our outstanding students and dedicated teachers. Because of their efforts, our school received the “Excelling School” title in 2007 from the Arizona Department of Education. We have high expectations for the students in our care and we are devoted to their success.

Continental uses automated forms of communication when contacting parents/guardians and students. You may receive an automated phone call (ie. Robocall), e-mail, or both. It is very important that we have up to date contact information on file in case of emergencies. Please make sure the Demographics Sheet we have on file is up to date, and remember to contact the school with any changes throughout the school year.

 

Mission Statement

Continental School District will provide a community environment in which all individuals are challenged to achieve excellence in academics, character, and life skills.

Vision Statement

Building for the Future - Learning, Cooperating, and Caring 


A Message from our Superintendent

Dear Parents, Volunteers and Community Members,

Welcome back to a new year and the second semester of school. We are starting with quite cold weather but beautiful sunny days. Our school community appreciates all that parents do as their children's first and most important teacher. We are here to support families in partnership to raise capable and caring citizens. Together we will assure that Continental students are educated for success in school and in life.

There are many important activities occurring at Continental School this semester:

  1. Due to my retirement, the governing board approved the Arizona School Board Association to conduct a search for a new superintendent starting in January. The application process closes in March when the board will screen applicants and conduct the interview. The brochure is available online for those interested.
  2. Staff will continue working second semester to prepare students for the new AzMERIT test for grades 3-8 including giving students the Acuity test in January, purchased by the district to determine current level of achievement. The new test will measure achievement based on the new College and Career Readiness Standards (Common Core). You can find assessment information and support materials provided by the Arizona Department of Education on their website. Please take a moment to review this information.
  3. We are developing a plan for Saturday and/or afternoon Mastering the Merit sessions to reduce test anxiety and teach test taking strategies as we get closer to April testing. We hope that parents will support our preparation efforts by having children read nightly, complete homework, and use programs like Scoot Pad at home for practice. Read the AzMERIT parent letter on our Assessments page. We will schedule a parent meeting in February to present information on the new test and answer questions.
  4. Summer is coming in about five months. Please remember that we offer an academic enrichment summer program for two weeks in June. We deisnged the program for both students who want an enriching experience and students who need academic assistance in specific areas. This summer, the program is June 1-12, 2015. If you have suggestions or questions, please e-mail Mrs. McNichols or call at 625-4581. We offer a half day program with an option for afternoon care through our pre-school program. We will work with parents who need full day care during the summer and/or help coordinate pickups for students whose parents work all day.
  5. Continental sends parents, teachers, and students an annual Climate Survey administered in March/April. We will review the survey and revise items, so let us know if you have suggestions. Send your suggestions to Mary Grace Wendel.

Please check your parent newsletters as they come out for additional information on events and activities. We are busy planning for next year including the calendar that will be approved by the board in February. If you have suggestions send your ideas to? Mrs. McNichols

Sincerely,

Virginia Juettner
