Thank you for your support!

We want to take this opportunity and thank you and all PVSchools' voters for continuing to support student excellence by passing our bonds and overrides! Bonds have been able to keep our schools in top-notch condition and help to maintain a safe and secure learning environment. These projects and annual maintenance would not be possible without the generous support of our community. Here at Desert Cove, voter-approved bonds have made the following possible:

Structural concrete stem wall on playground

Interior and exterior paint job

New carpet

Replacement canopy in front of school

Awning over hand washing sinks

New playground equipment

ASAA (Testing Arizona's Academic Standards Assessment )

During the month of April, Desert Cove students will be taking the ASAA. This is an annual statewide computer-based test that measures how students are performing in Language Arts and Math and science deepening on the grade level.

Please see the schedule below for the testing dates for your child’s grade level. It will be important for your child to come to school on time and stay at school all day so that he or she has plenty of time to finish the testing. Therefore, please do your best to not schedule any appointments for your child on these testing dates. Thank you for your support.

Join the conversation

In the last few years we have all been through a lot of changes. As a district, school, and community, we've changed policies, procedures, processes, etc. I know there are expectations for things to "go back to normal" and as a School Council and PTO we will start to discuss what those new norms will look like moving forward. I am grateful to have parents who participate in our School Council but all are welcome to attend. Our next meeting is April 4th at 7:45AM. It is virtual and you can join using the link below.

Monday, April 4 · 7:45 – 8:15am
