The faculty members at Kyrene de la Sierra Elementary School offer their students different activities to choose from, promising to keep them engaged throughout the school term.

The current enrollment at Sierra is 642 students.

For the fall term, the school has created different programs consisting of choir lessons for third- and fifth-graders, and a running club for all students. The running club will take place in October and will be offered two days out of the week after school.

Dana Westermann, student advisor at Sierra, said the programs offered at the elementary school is what sets them apart from other schools.

Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle school Principal Mike Deignan poses with students in front of the school sign that is advertising their "A" rating.

Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle School has been part of the Ahwatukee area since 1992, offering each of its Rattlers an enjoyable schooling experience from the morning bell to the ending bell.

According to its website, the name of the school is from the Akimel O’odham language and it means, “Children of the River.”

Principal Mike Deignan said the school offers sport activities and a learning lab before school starts, which provides students time before school to seek extra help with work completion or tutoring.

“That keeps our students involved with a lot of things, between the sports and the learning lab,” Deignan said.
