Del Rio Pawsitives and Character Counts - Student of the Month

Our student of the week is Ethan J. Several teachers were asked what makes Ethan great and they had many things to say. Such as…

“Ethan is the kindest, sweetest young man.  He is not pushy and he is always willing to help others.  Ethan has the biggest heart of any student I have ever had.  He is always respectful and he works so hard at school even though it is sometimes difficult.” 

“He never misses doing his homework, always does his best, always kind to all, always polite and a great kid.”

“He reached 200% of his AR reading goal last quarter and I can always count on him to be a great friend to all.”

“Ethan is caring and considerate of others. He always has a big smile and lends a hand when needed. Ethan gives his best effort both in class and outside.”

Ethan’s love for his family, especially his little sister, is evident along with all their family pets.

In addition to being a great student and friend here at Del Rio School, Ethan recently earned the highest award in Cub Scouts known as the Arrow of Light at the level of Webelo.  This award helps bridge those at the rank of Cub Scout into Boy Scouts. Ethan has been a Cub Scout since he was 8 and loves it.  He has participated every week with his den    earning various badges and pins towards completion of Cub Scouts.  Some of the requirements are conducting a flag   raising ceremony, community service projects, and memorizing the Cub Scout oath and motto.  Ethan has participated in a number of summer camps and has earned badges through activities with his  family.  

We are so proud of this young man, Ethan J for all his work, love and dedication to the things he is involved in.


Del Rio Cougar Archery, in their third season as an Elementary team, is    excited to announce they reached their fundraising goal, and together with HMS Cougar Archery, are purchasing a set of 3D targets!
Archery Team Picture

Funds were raised at our first annual NASP (National Archery in the Schools) Fun Shoot, where we hosted 14 schools from across Arizona in bullseye and 3D competition. We borrowed the equipment from Arizona Game and Fish to host the tournament but now, thanks to our amazing families and generous local business sponsors, we have our own set! We’d like to thank these businesses, each connected to a Del Rio 4th or 5th grade   archer, for donating as lane sponsors to help us purchase these targets: Fann Contracting, Inc., BSN Builders, Inc., Hot AZ Hell Welding, Stratos Wealth Partners, Wolfe Publishing Co., and Sportsman’s Warehouse. Thank you also, to the Cougar Archery families for the generous amount of time and resources that went into putting on such a successful event!
NASP has partnered with the International Bowhunters Organization (IBO) and uses their scoring criteria and rules. The idea behind including a 3D competition in the NASP tournaments was to encourage young archers to understand some of the archery hunting technique and language. We are SO excited to have a set of IBO NASP 3D targets because these are the same high-quality (Rinehart) targets the students shoot at all of our tournaments. The students love shooting 3D because “it’s fun!” and can now qualify for the NASP National Tournament shooting 3D as an individual or on a team.
