The Coolidge Unified School District announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program for Children. During the school year, many children receive free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch through the School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs. What happens when school lets out? Hunger is one of the most severe roadblocks to the learning process. Lack of nutrition during the summer months may set up a cycle for poor performance once school begins again. Hunger also may make children more prone to illness and other health issues. The Summer Food Service Program is designed to fill that nutrition gap and make sure children can get the nutritious meals they need.

On Tuesday May 10, 2011 at approximately 12:30 PM the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office responded to a suspicious person/possible burglary in progress occurring in the 3500 block of Allen’s Peak Rd. in San Tan Valley. Patrol officers responded to a call from a 15 year old girl who reported “some” men were trying to break in to her home while she was home alone from school. Deputies responded immediately and were subsequently engaged in a foot pursuit when they observed three male subjects in the area. PCSO deputies immediately apprehended 19 year old Charles James but lost sight of the other two suspects.

“In a recent survey by the National Education Association, for example, teachers said that in general, approximately 60% of their students were “disengaged” or “unmotivated.” 

This research is significant when responding to the future of computer technology in the classroom because technology in the classroom is an essential component to engaging students of the 21st Century. Our millennial students, digital natives if you were, are equipped at home with Smartphones, computers, internet access, iPods, iPads and more. Add a comment
