4th Grade Heads to Caverns

Bright and early on January 24th, 4th grade heads on an amazing all day field trip to Kartchner's Caverns. The group heads out about 6:15 am returning same time or later in the p.m. The students and staff will be able to explore the fascinating caverns and also visit the Sonoran Museum filled with Arizona habitat. Check out the video below or click directly on blue link.


The Sonoran Museum combines an experience of animal, botanical gardens, natural history, art and an aquarium. The museum comprises more than 98 acres of which two miles are set aside for walking paths moving throughout 21 acres of desert landscape. Students have their own museum passport that earns a stamp as they travel to different site destinations.

Kids and adults will be great exercise on this field trip! Pack sunscreen and lots of water!

Welcome New Staff

A huge RANCH welcome to 5th grade teacher, Monica Hill and to Masha Sadkova. Marsha did her student teaching here a year ago and now that she holds her degree and special education certifications, she will join us officially on our Resource Staff. We are very lucky to have both excellent and qualified teachers coming to us mid-year.

Ms. Hushek (Resource staff) will return to a part-time assignment working out of Carol Rae and we wish her the very best.
