Our Read-a-thon is here (April 4th - 22nd)

We are so excited to have a fundraiser that encourages our students to read! That is our main goal…encouraging reading. The money-raising portion is just a little added bonus. We’d love for ALL students to participate in the reading portion, even if they don’t ask for donations. We’re going to celebrate ALL students’ reading progress no matter how much they read. We’re simply encouraging them to read as much as possible.

Please sign your child up at:

Monday, 4/11 - STATE TESTING FOR 5TH (Reading and Math Part 1)

Tuesday, 4/12 - STATE TESTING FOR 4TH (Reading and Math Part 1)

Wednesday, 4/13 - STATE TESTING FOR 3rd (Reading and Math Part 1)

IB Corner

This month's IB Learner Profile Attribute is Balanced

This month we are focusing on being Balanced.

We understand the importance of balancing different aspects of our lives—intellectual, physical, and emotional—to achieve well-being for ourselves and others. We recognize our interdependence with other people and with the world in which we live.

Please remember to look at the Anasazi in Action page on our PYP Parent Portal to learn more about what your children are learning.

Anasazi PYP Parent Portal

We have created an Anasazi PYP Parent Portal for you to be able to find information about Anasazi and our PYP journey. Here is a link to an introduction video about our portal and the information that can be found there.

A Note from our Community Specialist

Dear parents, staff, and students:

I have created my new Amazon wish list to continue our labor of love and support ALL of our new comers! Link below. Your donations are always welcomed and appreciated.

On another note: please remember to contact me so that I can register your child/children in our Back to School Program sponsored by Vista del Camino Community Center of Scottsdale. This program is targeting 1,000 children from SUSD schools that might be in need of some help before the next

school year starts. This program provides them with back pack, school supplies, clothing, underwear, and shoes.

You can call me at 480-484-4614 to make an appointment.

As always, I am so grateful for all the help I have received from this wonderful community.
