Cheatham’s 8th grade AVID students volunteered at Feed My Starving Children. Students prepared enough meals to feed 93 children one meal per day for an entire year!
This was the group’s first community service project of the year. They hand packed rice, soy, dried vegetables and a nutritionally complete blend of vitamins and minerals into bags. The bags are then shipped to Feed My Starving Children’s food partners for distribution to malnourished children around the world.
Laveen schools serve free or reduced-price lunches to families that qualify based on income requirements.
Families must reapply annually. If you qualified last year your eligibility expires September 17. Please reapply at EZMealApp.com or complete a paper application at your school’s front office or cafeteria. All families are encouraged to apply. Applications are processed year round and are kept confidential.
Families that meet federal income levels may qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Lunches are currently priced at $2.30; the reduced price is $.40. Breakfast is served free to all students, regardless of eligibility, before school each day.
In addition to receiving a discount on meal prices, completed applications provide additional funds to the district in the form of grant money. Funding for prevention programs, parent training, and interventions for students in reading and math is often based on the number of students qualified for free or reduced–price lunch.

*Please note, Vista del Sur is an accelerated school and students must take an assessment prior to enrolling. Paseo Pointe is a dual language immersion (DLI) school. Incoming kindergartners and first graders must enroll in the DLI program (DLI will expand a grade level each year).
The Arizona Department of Health Services requires that all 11-year-old children entering sixth grade obtain two adolescent vaccines, Tdap and Meningococcal (MCV4), or provide a valid exemption. These new immunizations are important as they will provide protection against serious illness.
Tdap is a combination vaccine that provides protection against three bacterial diseases — Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis (Whooping Cough). Meningococcal prevents against four types of bacterial meningitis.
Parents should review their child’s immunization records. If these vaccinations have not been received, the child should obtain the vaccination at either their doctor’s office or an immunization clinic. Proof of immunizations will need to be received before the student can begin school on August 6.
Students who do not have these required shots, or a valid exemption, will not be allowed to start school. Children who are not yet 11 will be required to get the new immunizations once they turn 11.
