The school will have 15 classrooms, 6 labs and one rooftop lab, student learning studios, advanced technology, library/community room, cafeteria, rooms for fitness, music and visual arts, outdoor amphitheatre, and underground parking. The school will be located at 512 E. Pierce (The former McKinley School), in downtown Phoenix, next to the emerging biotechnology center.

School Bus Drivers Needed
 
School may be out of session but many school districts are already seeking bus drivers for next school year, which starts in early August. In the Phoenix Union High School District, pay and hours have been increased, starting at $11.89 per hour and higher depending on experience. Drivers are guaranteed a six-hour workday.
 
The district also offers full-time benefits with paid district recess and holidays. Drivers must possess a CDL, Arizona Bus Driver Certificate, P & S endorsements, and first-aid and CPR certificates. However, the district is able to train for any of these requirements. To apply, visit the Phoenix Union District offices at 4502 N. Central Ave. or call 602-764-1101.
 
New Principal named at South Mountain High School
 
Alvin Watson will assume the principal position at South Mountain High School, after serving as interim principal this past year, prior to Patricia Tobin’s retirement.

Watson also taught at the elementary, junior high and high school levels for 20 years.  He earned his Bachelor’s degree from Grambling State University and his Masters from Drake University. 
 
Tobin had been South’s principal since 1999, and had been with the District since 1977, starting as a Special Education teacher. Watson officially begins his assignment on July 5.

These special evenings will feature a variety of activities including water play, up close animal encounters, your favorite zoo rides at discounted prices including the Safari Train and the Endangered Species Carousel. Because some of our animals will be resting in the evenings, not all zoo trails will be open—but some of the favorites will be waiting for your visit including Monkey Village and the Orangutans. The Arizona Trail and the zoo’s ‘main loop’ surrounding the main lake will be accessible.

Special guests from the Maricopa Counties libraries will be on hand with storytelling and puppet shows for the kids. The cost is $3 per person for all ages ($2 for zoo members). For more information, contact the zoo at 602- 273-1341.
