Wildcat School seeking students

The University of Arizona-affiliated charter school, Wildcat School, which will open next month, will hold open houses for parents.

The events are meant to educate parents, potential students and neighbors about the non-profit school’s math and science instruction.

The school targets low-income children and those of parents who do not have a college degree, according to school officials.

Free classes start Aug. 17 for sixth- and seventh-graders. In the future, the school will add grades 8 through 12.

Here is the open house schedule:

● Thursday: School director Richard Reyes will lead a presentation on ways science is involved in everyone’s daily life.

● July 20: The school’s English and social studies educators will lead poetry activities.

● July 27: Reading consultants and a UA professor will lead a session exploring space, time and the universe.

● Aug. 3: The school’s science and math teachers will present activities exploring “math magic and science fun.”

● Aug. 10: The evening will be full of storytelling and art-making.



What: Open houses for the Wildcat School

When: 5 to 7 p.m. every Thursday until Aug. 10.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
