Vista’s 7th grade students participated in the Youth Frontiers Courage Retreat.
Through presentations, activities, and small group discussions; the retreat aimed to empower students to be themselves and take positive risks that make a healthy difference for themselves, their peers and their school. It inspired students to follow their hearts instead of the crowd.
The retreat was organized by Youth Frontiers, based out of Minnesota. Almost 20 Cesar Chavez High School students, selected based on their leadership ability, also volunteered to support with small group facilitation.
Students finished the day learning how to act with courage to build a positive school culture and climate.

The Laveen Elementary School District wants to hear what you have to say about your school and your school district!
We will be hosting a number of town hall forums for parents, staff, and students to share feedback on their experiences with us. These sessions will be moderated by Hazard, Young, Attea, and Associates (HYA).
HYA has been contracted by the district as an independent third party to conduct a comprehensive, thorough, and productive community engagement process.
