PUESTA DEL SOL PTA'S ACADEMIC CHALLENGE 2018!
The deadline for the Academic Challenge is approaching! Can you still participate? YES!
This is a non-competitive, voluntary program consisting of seven (7) academic challenges offered all K-5 students at Puesta del Sol Elementary. Students choose and complete challenges throughout the school year. These challenges must be completed outside of school.
  • ALL students are eligible!
  • Students that complete five (5) out of seven (7) challenges are awarded a trophy! If a student completes all seven (7) challenges, s/he will also be awarded the Principal's Medal at a school assembly or award ceremony.
  • Challenges have unique deadlines. See the descriptions of the challenges and their due dates here
The final submission deadline for timesheets and the Final Submission Form is April 27, 2018.
 
*There is still time! Social Studies, Science, Math, Coding, Keyboarding, and Literacy Challenges can still be completed and counted towards achieving an AC Award! Need timesheets? Print them from the website or ask for one in the office.
 
The Final Submission Form and these AC components will be collected in the school office the week of April 27, 2018.  If you participated in the Reflections Art Program, Science Fair, or Passport Club components, those program organizers will confirm your participation. All you need to do is "check" the boxes beside the AC components completed. Have fun - and take on the Challenge!

January 10 - 1st grade
February 7th - 2nd grade              
March 7 - 3rd grade
April 18 - 4th grade
June 6 - Kindergarten
