On May 31st, the 6-8 classroom went to Pizza Hut in Wilcox for lunch to spend some of the money that they had earned during the year doing fundraisers. Accompanied by their teacher Mr. Ettleson, Principal Sue Shepard, and Administration Assistant Chris Hamberger, everyone ate too much at the buffet. Restaurant General Manager Delbert Verdugo joined the class for picture time. A special thank you to Mr. Verdugo who is always generous with Ash Creek Students and makes sure that the experience is an enjoyable one for all involved.
The Superior Court sponsored an art and essay contest to celebrate Law Day. Natasha Phillips took first place and Shyanne O’Neil won third place. They traveled to the Bisbee Superior Court on May 1st to read their essays in front of Judge Conlogue, other court personnel, our principal, proud parents, and assorted guests. We here at Ash Creek are very proud of our winners.
Heather Vaughn from the University of Arizona joins us once a month throughout the year to teach nutrition to the students. These are some of the veggie faces created by students using hummus and assorted vegetables. They were quite delicious.

Our track meet this year was a roaring success. The weather was perfect and we had a very large turnout to support the athletes.
We would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to the elementary schools that attended this year. Cochise, Elfrida, Joanne Todd Christian School, McNeal, Pomerene, San Simone, and the Home Schoolers made this one of our most successful and enjoyable track meets in years.
The track meet would not be possible without the help of our many volunteers. Thank you to the Pearce/Sunsites Fire department for attending with an ambulance “just in case.” We also appreciate the Cochise County Sheriffs Department attending year after year. The good folks at Mustang Mall donated ice for our never ending snow cone line after we ran short. It was very much appreciated by all. Thank you to the Coronado Dairy and Valley Union High School students who sent volunteers to help make the day a success. And a big thank you to the many unnamed volunteers who showed up and just pitched right in with anything and everything asked of them.
A very special thank you to Heather Vaughn from the U of A for donating all of the “put a little play inn your day” water bottles that were given to each and every athlete.
Hope to see y’all at next year’s track meet.
Congratulations to Natasha Phillips for winning 1st place in the Law Day Essay Contest, and to Shyanne O’Neil for winning 3rd place. They will be reading their essays at the Law Day ceremony on May 1st at the Bisbee Superior Court.
