The Peoria Unified School District will host their semi-annual fall field trip 8 a.m. – 1:45 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 8.

This is an exciting opportunity for elected officials, community members and prospective parents to visit Peoria Unified’s Sunrise Mountain High School, Cactus High School, Frontier Elementary School and Peoria Elementary School campuses.

The tour begins at Sunrise Mountain High School 21200 N. 83rd Avenue, Peoria, AZ 85382, where district leaders will welcome guests and give an overview of the district. Visitors will board a Peoria Unified school bus and head to Frontier Elementary, Peoria Elementary and Cactus High School where they will be greeted by students, followed by a tour of each campus.

The Fall Field Trip is an interactive, informative and an ideal way to introduce the community to Peoria Unified’s award-winning programs. The district hosts field trips twice each school year to give an up-close and personal look at the wide variety of exceptional schools and programs offered as part of its ongoing commitment to the community.

Frontier Elementary boasts the largest preschool in the district and the Frontier Leadership Academy, which groups 8th grade students with lower grade level students in a variety of character lessons and activities.

At Peoria Elementary, patrons will visit the Peoria Pantry. The Peoria Pantry serves Peoria Unified students and families in need.

Cactus High School prides itself on its culinary arts program, where visitors will receive lunch by Cactus’ talented culinary arts students.

Any interested individual is encouraged to reserve a space at pusdpr@pusd11.net or call Peoria Unified’s Public Relations Department at 623-486-6100.
