A Message from our Principal

Hello Falcons,

The fourth quarter is already here, and our students have jumped right back into learning after spring break. 3rd-8th graders will participate in AzMERIT state assessments April 4-15. You can see a daily schedule of testing on page two of our current newsletter. Please make sure students are sleeping well at night and eating a good breakfast to help them perform their best on these days. They may also bring a healthy snack or get one from the school. 

After testing, we celebrate our hard work with spirit week! Please see the daily themes on page three of our current newsletter, and watch for a flyer in your child’s backpack. This last quarter will go quickly, and we have lots of activities coming up including the art show and ice cream social, track meet, spirit week, field day, field trips, and awards assemblies.

Please read through our newsletter to stay up to date on school information and events. Don’t forget, you can always find out more information about our school here on our website and on our Facebook page.

Take Care,

Christina Strauss
