Poston Butte High School is the home of a very small group of students who are already showing great promise for our future. For the second year in a row, the Future Problem Solving team at Poston Butte has claimed multiple first place trophies in the State Bowl at Arizona State University West and have been invited to the International Conference at Indiana University in June where they will compete against winners from nearly every state and a dozen nations.
Eighty-one students from Poston Butte High School competed in the 37th annual Central Arizona College Math Competition. Students took first place in Level 1 Algebra I and both first and second place in Level 3 Pre-Calculus and Calculus, resulting in a total score that landed the team in 1st place overall for 2013.The Poston Butte team has placed well in the annual competition for all three years that they have competed, earning a third place overall in 2012. "I am just super proud of our kids," stated Dr. Bob Pappalardo, principal. "We just keep getting better and better. I'd say the team performance is a positive reflection on the changes we have implemented in our math program as well as some hard work and perseverance on the part of some really great kids."
Walkers will go around the clock in the battle against cancer when the second American Cancer Society Relay For Life® of San Tan Valley gets underway with teams of residents gathering at Poston Butte High School on April 12th at 6pm.Relay For Life events are held overnight as individuals and teams camp out at an athletic track, park or other gathering area, with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track or pathway at all times throughout the evening. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites during Relay.
On Wednesday, March 6th, 2013 at 6 a.m. the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office received a call from the Florence Unified School District regarding a “hit list” which was discovered on the internet and reported to them by a parent of one of the students on the list.The list was created by two female students; an 8th grade student at Walker Butte K-8 and a 10th grade student at Poston Butte High School, and placed on the social media site Instagram. Also on the media site was an icon of a pistol next to the word “hit list.”
