School Is Back in Session
Youngsters in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community returned to the classroom in early August after summer break.
The first day of school at Salt River Schools was August 5, and surrounding Valley schools started a day or so after.
At Salt River Elementary School, each student received a free backpack during a special afternoon celebration on the first day. The backpack distribution was coordinated through Playworks, a nonprofit that works with schools to “rethink recess.”
