Superintendent Visit

Yesterday, Dr. Trujillo visited Sam Hughes! He was able to stop by most classrooms to see our wonderful and amazing CREW in action. In addition to visiting classrooms, Dr. Trujillo was interviewed by AZ Public Media for a segment on Arizona 360, hosted by Lorraine Rivera. I will communicate more details about when the segment will air. It was a fantastic opportunity for Sam Hughes to be showcased!


Thank you for spending time practicing the Spellathon Words with your students. We appreciate the time and effort you are putting in to supporting your student in preparing for the test and for helping your student get pledges. Thank you for being CREW!

Benchmark Assessments

Students in Grades 2–5 are completing the Quarter 1 Benchmark test. The assessment is computer-based and students will complete it online, using a laptop. I encourage you to ask your student how they did on the benchmark and how they felt working on the computer!

End of 1st Quarter and Fall Break

October 5th is grading day (NO SCHOOL for students), marking the end of the first quarter. The following week, October 8–12, is Fall Break — NO SCHOOL for students. The Sam Hughes office will be closed for the week and CREW Club will be closed as well. Thank you in advance for making arrangements for your students.

Magic Box

Every day students are feeding the Magic Box their original stories! Keep up the great work, CREW…I can’t wait to see which class has the most entries and wins the Mini Magic Box! The Magic Box will be at Hughes until October 4th—so keep writing!

Please contact the front office with any questions or concerns.

Thank you,
