September Updates

One month already down!


Congratulations to our Roadrunner PTA!!! They have been nationally selected and honored as an A+ PTA School of Excellence! This is an exceptional recognition and we are so proud. Thank you to our board that contributes time and energy to finding ways to support our school community! Their next fundraiser, Boosterthon, starts next week. We look forward to this fun event that raises significant funds for our PTA and, in turn, our campus and kids. Thank you ahead of time for your participation!


We are putting together a site council that will begin meeting bi-monthly in October. If you are interested in being part of this council of parents, leadership, community members, and staff, please reach out to me directly. naylor@lesd.k12.az.us. The site council will give input on solving problems for the campus and share stakeholder perspective.


Welcome to our new staff: Jahzeel Abrigo (Preschool IA), Jessica Welsh (Stride IA), and Samantha Ziegelmann (1-1). We are so happy to have you in our school family!



With Tribe Pride,


Corby Naylor

Principal
