2024-2025 School Calendar Update

We hope your summer is off to a good start. We wanted to give you an update on the 24-25 school calendar. The New Mexico Public Education Department has not yet reached a final decision regarding required school days for next year. As of now we have two potential start dates. One will start August 19th, the other on August 26th. Once we are notified we will send the calendar out to families and also post on our website. 

Please reach out if you have any questions to Mary Tarango, Superintendent,  at mtarango@21stcenturypa.com, Jeremy Peckens, Principal at jpeckens@21stcenturypa.com, or Amy Morga at amorga@21stcenturypa.com

We hope you have a safe and restful summer!

End of Year Updates

Good morning Dragon, Families!  Where has the time gone?  As we prepare for end of year activities just a few final instructions.

Yearbook Signing:  Tuesday afternoon in the gym.  Yearbooks will be distributed in homeroom, and we will have student put their names in them.  PERMANENT MARKERS ARE NOT ALLOWED We have found that students use them inappropriately.  Also, they are not allowed to write on each other’s clothing. 

Tuesday is the last day at school for 8th Grade.

Wednesday is Graduation at the UNM Continuing Education Building

Thursday is field day for 1st through 7th Grade.  Elementary is in the morning and Middle School is in the afternoon.  The PTA will be selling drinks and snacks.

Friday is a half day for students. There will be NO aftercare on that day.

Thank you for a wonderful year!
