A Message from our Principal

Welcome Aztec students and families to what promises to be a bright and exciting 2013-2014 school year!

All of last year’s successes have created a momentum that is inspiring every adult at Copper Canyon to push our own boundaries to learn more, and plan better so both our kids and our school will continue to excel. With the success we have had with AIMS this past year, the excitement over more students taking a greater number of higher level classes, with the triumphs of our athletic and cheer teams, and, with the addition of West-Mec to our already achieving CTE programs, we have put into motion a 2013-2014 school year filled with promise.

Over the summer, our teachers attended trainings and wrote new curriculum to align with the new Common Core State Standards. Classes will be a little tougher. Teachers and students will have to work a little harder. They will struggle as we push ourselves and we push them. But, in a learning community like Copper, that is a great thing because this year our kids will learn more than ever. Their skills will improve, their confidence will grow, and as a group, in academics, athletics, and social development, they will shine. They will become more prepared to compete in college or the workplace.

Every year I say this is our year. And, every year that has turned out to be the case. Well, this year will once again be an improvement over last year. As we continue to aspire and achieve, this year will be our year. Our campus is becoming more and more courteous, committed, helpful, and safe with every senior class that graduates and every freshman class that comes ready to make our community stronger.

Again, I welcome you to the 2013-2014 school year! As a new or continuing Aztec, I challenge you parents, and students, to give your best effort this year. I promise we will too.

With that said, I wish you a great 2013-2014 school year.
