9-11 Tower Challenge Logo

Dear Staff,

On Tuesday, September 11, we honor of all those who lost their lives on 9/11 and our first responders and military who continue to protect us from foreign and domestic threats.

There were 110 floors and 2,071 steps in the Twin Towers. Tomorrow, our 8th Grade Superintendent's Student Council will remember the bravery of those who lost their lives on 9/11 by joining hundreds of people in stadiums across Arizona by taking the journey of 2,071 steps and completing the 911 Tower Challenge at Gila River Arena. Firefighters in full gear, Police, Military and Bomb Squad personnel will march alongside participants of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

Picture of students participating in last year's challenge.


“One of the worst days in America’s history saw some of the bravest acts in Americans’ history. We’ll always honor the heroes of 9/11. And here at this hallowed place, we pledge that we will never forget their sacrifice."

- President George W. Bush


Photographs of our fallen heroes line the stairs, and our 8th grade council members will have the opportunity to pause briefly to read the names in recognition of the sacrifice each made while in the service of others. This powerful morning connects our students to the kindness, strength and bravery exhibited on that dark day.

Together we vow to Never Forget!

I am here to serve you. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance.

I BEE-lieve in you!
