  Dear Parents,
         It is hard to believe we are already into our second quarter of school. If you have a chance
  in the next few weeks, please stop by and check out the new “Cool Pavement” on our volleyball
  courts. Our volleyball courts had a great makeover donated by Emerald Cities USA Ltd. This new
  surfacing decreases the overall temperature on the pavement. Cochise was one of the first “Cool
  Schools” to receive this Solar Reflective Cool Pavement in the United States. Teal Blue was
  selected to match the school’s color theme.
         Also, please mark your calendar for our upcoming October and November events. Grand
  Canyon Trekkers began this week at lunch recess. Our annual Walk & Bike to School Day is this
  upcoming Monday, October 25th. November 1st through November 5th we have the Book Fair in the
  Science Lab. Also, November 5th is the Fall Family BBQ from 10:45 am - 1:00 pm. We hope to see
  you at these great events. Have a great week !

16th. Students will be able to walk or jog a ¼ mile “trail” at lunch recess each Tuesday and
Thursday. Kids can walk or jog the loop as many times as they want during their recess, and they
will get a “boot” charm after each mile completed. Small incentives will be given at key milestones.
This program is sponsored by Community Health Services at Scottsdale Health Care and the
Cochise APT.

      The top 4 walkers in 4th and 5th grade will win a one day trip to the Grand Canyon with
       Scottsdale Health Care at the end of the school year
      The top 4 walkers in 1st - 3rd grade will win a prize that has yet to be determined from
       Scottsdale Health Care
      The top 8 walkers will also win camelback water packs that our APT has donated
      The top 30 walkers will go on a field trip to Fountain Hills Park in the Spring
      The top 60 walkers will receive certificates

Please encourage your children to participate. Exercise is so important! Send them with a hat,
water bottle, and sunscreen. Please feel free to come and walk with them, too!
We will need 3 parents for each Tues/Thurs shift to help keep track of the student’s progress. A
