 Canyon View Student Honored With Ben's Bell

Canyon View Student

Congratulations to Canyon View rising fifth grader Cadence Moore! She received a Ben’s Bell for making a difference in our community through kindness. Cadence was a founding member of a new student group, the Silhouettes, at Canyon View Elementary School. The students' main task was to come up with ways to celebrate Black History Month. In addition to starting this group, Cadence also had the idea of starting a Martin Luther King Jr. Day Unity Walk. At the inaugural gathering, over 200 people across the district met at Canyon View to honor Dr. King through song and a walk through Sabino Canyon.

 Spanish Immersion

The Spanish Immersion program in CFSD started in the 2009-2010 school year with 20 kindergarten students. Fast forward to present day, Ventana Vista Elementary School now boasts more than 450 immersion students. Not only does our program continue to grow, but we know that it is working. The students from that first class of immersion students from Ventana Vista are graduating from high school this year. Each of these students who took the Arizona Seal of Biliteracy assessment received the highest level of recognition and received the CFSD GOLD Seal.

As we close out the 2021-2022 school year, we're pleased to share with you one of the many celebrations of learning held at Ventana Vista: our third graders performing Un Poco Loco.


Foothills Grad Paves the Way


Dr. Abigail Cochran

Foothills grad Dr. Abigail Cochran '10 studied the impacts of COVID-19 on access to transportation for people with disabilities. She found that the pandemic is aggravating many difficulties accessing transportation and other essentials that people with disabilities regularly encounter and she recommended that those involved in the pandemic response make a concerted and intentional effort to address barriers that people with disabilities are facing during the pandemic, paving the way for a more inclusive pandemic response. 
Abby's complete study is available here.
Abby holds a Master of City Planning and Ph.D. in City and Regional Planning from the University of California, Berkeley. She is broadly interested in travel behavior, transportation policy, disability, aging, and health. She is an incoming Assistant Professor of Community and Regional Planning at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

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.
