through generous grants from PG&E and
the Legacy Foundation. Led by the reigning
Mohave County Teacher of the year, Ms.
Beverly James,   the 2010 math AIMS  
scores of our 5th grade students were the
highest in Mohave County. 83% of those
students met or exceeded Arizona State
Standards, topping Young Scholars
Academy in Bullhead City who scored 81%.

Many thanks to Richard Caudillo for school
supplies for our teachers and children!
Every year without fail Mr. Caudillo shows
up and without fanfare simply enriches the
lives of many with his continued support
and generosity!

Our opening day ceremonies included our  
traditional flag raising ceremony provided
by members of the VFW and the Ladies
Auxiliary and accompanied on the
electronic guitar by Joaquin Ortero. Sadly
absent from the Ladies Auxiliary was
Topock School advocate and staunch
supporter Jeannie LaFrance. Mrs.
LaFrance was a wonderful parent and a
tremendous patriot whose generous
advice and words of wisdom I will miss.

This year we welcome aboard the newest
member of the Topock School Family, Miss
Jessica Sondgeroth who recently
graduated from Northern Arizona
University with a Bachelors Degree in
Advertizing. She will be the Technology
Instructor in our state of the art computer
lab. We look  for our students to achieve
greatness in technology under the tutelage
of Miss Sondgeroth! Be sure to take a look
at her Web page on Teacher Pages.
