Lady Warriors Softball Season Ends

The Lady Warriors played their final softball game of the season Tuesday, April 29. They may have lost, but they closed the season with an exciting, well played game. Facing the same opponents as the night before, South Ridge High School, the team battled hard. The game started off with a challenge. The umpire pointed
 out a flaw in our pitchers' stances that could have stopped the game before it began.
 However, Karina Mason was able to rally to the challenge of changing up her style to follow regulations, and the game was on. 
...
Exciting News! Wednesday night, May 7, CAA announced the members of the Division 1-2A All Star Honorary Team. Coach Jackson was present to hear that three of the members of our softball team were chosen. Arlene Perez, Karina Mason, and Sulema Solis-Flores were selected by other coaches for the team.

Attention Parents

Do you want to be more involved with your student's school? Join us at one of these conferences and support your student's learning. We are bringing one parent with us to the STEM Conference and two parents with us to the AVID Conference. There is a limit of one parent per family for this opportunity.

We are pleased to announce that Michelle Guy was selected to be the parent representative for the STEM Conference, May 14-17.The choice was made through a blind selection process (just the answers were shared that did not identify the parent) and using a rubric, teachers made the decision. We hope all parents will continue to apply for these opportunities in the future.

The Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) Conference is July 30 - August 1 in San Diego, California. Conference registration and traveling expenses will be paid in full by the school. For more information about the conference and AVID, go to http://www.avid.org/eve_summerinstitutes.html

The first public single-gender charter high school in our state, Girls Leadership Academy of Arizona (GLAAZ) empowers young women to succeed as leaders in their classrooms, in their communities, and in their own lives. We achieve this vision by sustaining rigor, relevance and relationships: the hallmarks of a 21st century school.

Envisioned as the premier educational option for young women, GLAAZ combines the most successful models of school reform with highly effective teachers and curricula that connects the work of the school to the life of our community. GLAAZ shares the attributes of high schools that work: a common focus on research-based goals and an intellectual mission; a small, personalized learning community; technology as a tool for designing and delivering engaging, imaginative curricula; and, rigorous academic standards for both high school and college level studies. GLAAZ is committed to providing opportunities for students to earn college credits beginning in the freshman year of high school. The young women of GLAAZ are empowered to:

  • Contribute to our community through service learning and civic engagement
  • Participate in school-wide initiatives and decision-making
  • Create meaningful community involvement for students, teachers and parents through service learning, job internships and participation in community-based organizations
  • Develop leadership skills in our weekly advisory program, supplemented with “Girl Meets World,” a curriculum also selected by Oprah for her leadership school.

"I have big plans ahead of me...Girls Leadership Academy of Arizona is the
only school that can help me fulfill my highest potential."
