 First Day of School for CFSD

Two OGMS Students

Excitement was in the air as over 5,200 students filled CFSD campuses and buses on the first day of school.  Some students shyly asked for help to find their classrooms; others, like Arya Patel, were overjoyed when they got their locker to click open on the very first try.  Arizona Daily Star photographer Mamta Popat captured Orange Grove students as they returned to classes and reunited with friends. View the photo gallery here.

Foothills Grad Soars in
His Study of Guitar

Congratulations to Foothills grad Dante Olita ‘21, the recipient of the Stuart Weber Scholarship for his study of guitar at The Volterra Project in Italy. The mission of the Volterra Project is to help young guitarists develop well-rounded and non-competitive approaches to performing and to foster a generation of accomplished young guitarists who are prepared for the multiple aspects of performing careers. Every year, the American guitarist and composer Stuart Weber offers a full scholarship to one USA resident guitar student.  We are thrilled that Dante was selected this year.

“Dante started with me as a freshman when I started the guitar program at Catalina Foothills,” says teacher Alex Meredith. “He is truly a kind, thoughtful, and compassionate soul. I was so fortunate to have such an incredible young man as a student for my first 4 years of teaching. He is now soaring and got to spend the summer in Italy on a full scholarship with the Volterra Project.”

What is the District’s Open Enrollment Program?

Open enrollment is a state law that allows students to attend schools outside of their resident school if the receiving school has the capacity to accept them. CFSD residents who wish to attend a school other than their home area school must apply under the open enrollment program as well as non-resident families.
