Dear Parents,parentvue

Welcome to Vulture Peak Middle School! My name is Jennifer Appleby, and I am honored to serve as principal of Vulture Peak Middle School. With the support of  staff, students, parents/guardians, and our Wickenburg community, all our students will work to become the leaders of the future. My goal is to provide a wonderful educational experience for every student.

My belief is all students can learn, achieve, succeed, and contribute to the Vulture Peak campus. My staff has the desire and talents to help each student capture these beliefs as they soar towards individual success.

To SOAR we need to expose our students to high-level learning, integrity, decision-making situations, and character education activities. First we focus on using first-rate instruction to our students in all classes. Every teacher prioritizes his/her curriculum and works with staff to ensure all students are learning the Arizona Standards.

As we begin the new 2017-2018 school year, you will see a great deal of changes. You will see that we have been busy making changes on campus from the new flooring to the beginning of the construction phases of the bus barn building. Over the course of the year you will see additional changes to campus, so watch our website for updates.

Review of daily expectations as we start the school year are found below:

  • In the campus classroom, we permit students to bring plain, non-flavored water to drink; we prefer clear water bottles. Please do not send your student to school with polar pops, soda, coffee or tea beverages, or energy drink products.
  • We ask that you support us by reminding your child to not chew gum or eat in the classrooms.
  • If your child is riding his/her bike to school, he/she will need to sign a bike safety agreement and wear a safety proof bike helmet.
  • Finally, due to safety, all students not riding the school bus need to be picked up and dropped off by the front office and never in the bus loading and unloading zone.
  • We do allow cell phones on campus but students cannot use them during instructional time. If we find students using a cell phone during instructional time, we will discipline them.
  • We will strictly enforce the dress code. 

I look forward to an exciting school year!

Welcome to WUSD!


Jennifer Appleby
