Buenas tardes Raiders y Cardenales ...

Le pedimos que lo revise y haga los cambios que puedan haber ocurrido con respecto a direcciones, números de teléfono y contactos de emergencia ... Si hay cambios , escríba los nuevos detalles y firme el documento. Si no se necesitan cambios, y todo está actualizado, aún así firme el documento. Le pedimos que su hijo/a devuelva el documento firmado, independientemente de si se realizaron cambios o no, antes del miércoles, 22 de Noviembre.

Sea Cadets Meeting

posted Nov 17, 2017, 10:24 AM by CYNTHIA Torres

​Greetings from the USNSCC part of the US Navy Family!


Are you Interested in the US Navy?  Do you like the new television series “SEALS”?

Tired of playing video games on the weekend and want something fun to do?

The Sea Cadets allows kids aged 11-17 to do what ROTC programs can’t- learn about military procedures and activities and go to military bases to learn about them and do them!

 Our cadets learn how to SCUBA dive, Rappel, make things out of paracord, Firefighting and Damage Control​ using actual firefighting equipment and apparatus (Fire Engine)​, Medical Response ​like CPR/First Aid​ and how to take care of the sick and injured, Land Navigation​and how to find your way in the wilderness,  Shipboard procedures, Aircraft Maintenance, Flight Operations, and so much more!!  - all while ​being allowed access to visit ​US Naval Military Bases and other Military Bases and sites across the country like ​Luke Air Force Base, ​the USS Midway and NBSD (Naval Base San Diego)

We even have trainings with the US NAVY SEALS!!!

 Sea Cadets get to wear actual US Navy uniforms, are taught the USN core values- Honor, Courage and Commitment​​ and​ learn about US Navy History without ever having to join the military or commit to enlist!​  They are taught by volunteer instructors who are security background checked/certified to instruct by the USNSCC and are protected with a $1,000,000 insurance policy while at training.​

This isn’t for the faint of heart and requires effort and knowledge to be successful…  but you won’t go it alone and will have the support and help of your shipmates during your service​ to the USNSCC!​

​This coming Monday ​20 NOV 2017 there will be an informational meeting about the USNSCC (United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps) and what it takes to become a “sailor”.  We’re meeting in room B121 at Royal Palm Middle School from 1800 – 2000 to answer any questions about the program and the requirements it takes to become a cadet.



​We'd like you to come check us out and find out how you can serve  your country, community and friends while in service with the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps!

 For more information contact us at:                 623-271-0148                    623-341-4980


You can visit a website at to see what the kids are up to this week!

Important Information about the Solar Eclipse

posted Aug 18, 2017, 12:00 PM by SHAUNA CALLAHAN

Dear Parents/Guardians,


On Monday, August 21, a solar eclipse will cross the United States with partial visibility in Arizona with its peak at 10:33 a.m.


The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) states that at no time during the eclipse should a person look directly at the sun. Exposure of the retina to intense visible light causes damage to the eye’s light-sensitive rod and cone cells. The result is a loss of visual function that may be either temporary or permanent, depending on the severity of the damage. The risk to vision is significant because the associated injuries occur without any feeling of pain, and the visual effects do not occur for at least several hours after the damage is done.


For the safety of all students, all WESD schools will be on a mandatory rainy day schedule Monday, August 21. Recess and other outdoor activities will be canceled from 9:15 a.m. to noon to ensure the safety of our students.


We understand that this is an exciting and educational experience. If students and staff

plan on viewing the eclipse, we are recommending that teachers use the NASA livestream,


Thank you for your understanding and support.

Estimados Padres/Guardianes,


El lunes, 21 de agosto, un eclipse solar cruzará los Estados Unidos con visibilidad parcial en Arizona con su punto de mayor intensidad a las 10:33 a.m.


La Administración Nacional de la Aeronáutica y del Espacio (NASA por sus siglas en inglés) declara que en ningún momento durante el eclipse debe una persona mirar directamente al sol. El que la retina sea expuesta a luz visible intensa daña los bastones y conos del ojo que son sensibles a la luz. El resultado es la pérdida de funcionamiento visual que pudiese ser temporal o permanente, dependiendo en la gravedad del daño. El riesgo a la visión es significativo porque las lesiones asociadas ocurren sin ninguna sensación de dolor y los efectos visuales no ocurren hasta al menos varias horas después de que el daño se ha hecho.


Para la seguridad de todos los estudiantes, todas las escuelas de WESD estarán en un horario obligatorio de día lluvioso el lunes, 21 de agosto. Se cancelarán el recreo y otras actividades al aire libre desde las 9:15 a.m. hasta el mediodía para asegurar la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes.


Entendemos que esta es una experiencia emocionante y educativa. Si los estudiantes y el personal planean ver el eclipse, recomendamos que los maestros utilicen la transmisión en vivo de NASA,


Gracias por su comprensión y apoyo.
