Arizona High School Teacher Uses SAFE Teacher Grant for Education

Dr. Paul McElligott is a passionate and extraordinary science teacher at Fountain Hills High School in Fountain Hills, AZ. In 2016, he was the recipient of a $250 K-12 Classroom Teacher Grant Award from the Society of Aviation and Flight Education (SAFE) to be used to purchase micro drones that his students would reverse engineer in order to learn about aerodynamics and aviation. The project was completed at the end of the 2016-2017 school year.

We are grateful to the society of their grant.

We Welcome the PTO!

We are so excited to announce that the FHUSD PTO is now a part of our high school. This nonprofit parent teacher organization now runs from preschool all the way to twelfth grade. They provide our district with so many incredible gifts and donations, made possible through your $20 membership, which includes the iconic PTO discount card. 

We look forward to having the PTO on our campus, where they have pledged to provide our teachers with a monthly appreciation luncheon. Pick up your membership form and discount card at the front office, or register online at the Fountain Hills PTO website.

A Word from Our School Resource Officer

Hello Falcon parents. I am the Fountain Hills Unified School District's new School Resource Officer (SRO), Deputy Brooks. I am very much looking forward to serving the Falcon community this year. My foremost concern is the safety and security of your children on campus as well as in our community. This sentiment is shared by every deputy sheriff serving Fountain Hills.

Now that school has begun, school zones are back. Please slow down! The speed limit for school zones is 15 miles per hour. Tickets in school zones for speeding can be expensive. Yes, going one mile an hour over the posted speed limit is speeding. Our goal is to educate, rather than to enforce this issue. The deputy sheriffs serving in Fountain Hills are asking you to slow down in the school zones and help keep our children safe.
