Havasupai Elementary names new school mascot
Havasupai Elementary principal Claude Sanders has announced the school will be retiring its current warrior mascot and adopting the orphaned coyote mascot of our old Daytona Middle School. A "Welcome To Coyote Country" sign that was removed from the Daytona campus when A.S.U. took it over will soon be hanging at Havasupai. Mr. Sanders thanked all the Havasupai parents, students, and staff who participated in the selection process. Many different mascots were suggested: hornets, eagles, rattlers, gila monster, and scorpions. Students voted and made the final selection.
Thanks to LHHS students for A Day of Service
|LHHS students work on a Day of Service project on the island.|
The Lake Havasu High School National Honor Society organized A Day of Service on March 14th where nearly 1000 Lake Havasu High School students worked on service projects in the community. Students worked at the school itself renovating the cross-country course, painting the bleachers, working on the landscaping, creating care packages for battered women's shelters, and writing letters to Sandy Hook. Off campus groups worked on beach clean-up, elementary school field days, placing benches and plants on the island, visiting assisted living homes, and renovations to Havasu for Youth's Fusion Teen Center. On this single day, LHHS students made a variety of improvements across the community. Day of Service adheres to the ideal that while someone may not be able to do everything, everyone can do something.

Free summer breakfast & lunch for children
Thanks to a program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Lake Havasu Unified is able to serve free breakfast and lunch to any child age 18 or younger at four of our schools (Oro Grande Elementary, Starline Elementary, Havasupai Elementary, and Thunderbolt Middle School) during the summer break. All children are eligible, whether they attend one of these schools or not.
Dates and times.
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Child Nutrition Program established to ensure that low-income children, ages 18 and younger, continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. Free meals, that meet Federal nutrition guidelines, are provided to all children at approved SFSP sites in areas with significant concentrations of low-income children by schools, private non-profits and local or county governments. The SFSP is administered at the State level by the Arizona Department of Education (ADE).
