iPads/Equipment for Nogales High School Science Classes

The Science Foundation of Arizona selected Nogales High school to receive a grant in the amount of $49,644 to fund the purchase of the latest iPads, along with software and equipment to conduct hands-on experiments. The students will generate data using probes that record various compositions of matter that sent to the iPads, and then will analyze the information. The skills the students will learn apply to real-world use of scientific information and will give them the opportunity to actually participate, not just read about, collecting and disseminating data. 

Funding from The Kemper and Ethel Marley Foundation and Science Foundation Arizona provided the science lab in memory of Joyce Marley Corrigan. Please visit the Science Foundation Arizona’s website to learn more about this wonderful organization and its efforts to improve student achievement, especially in the areas of science and math.

Free and Reduced School Lunch

In the 2014-2015 school year, all Nogales Unified School District students will be able to receive free lunch. This is in addition to the free breakfast that we've made available to our students for several years, regardless of economic situations.

“If everyone can eat for free there will be no distinction of who is eating and who is not,” Supt. Steve Zimmerman said. “Also, the meals will provide the needed nutrition to do well during the school day since many students would rather spend their meal money on snacks rather than to purchase the school meals themselves.”

The key to the success of the program, however, is in receiving meal applications from everyone, even those who would not qualify in previous years due to their household income. The forms are crucial to establishing a baseline through which we can secure future funding.
