  • Students pay tribute to 9/11 heroes

    Seventeen years after the tragic events of 9/11, we now live in a world where not a single one of our Ahwatukee school-age children can recall a time before that day. But a tradition among Kyrene schools ensures children learn to value and respect not only fallen heroes, but also those who still serve today, with special assemblies held on 9/11.
