Every scholar, every day! September 2021

A Message from Leslie Thomas

Hello Diamondbacks!

Welcome to September! It has been great to have our scholars back in the building for in person instruction. As we continue through the pandemic, safety and good health for our students and staff remains our priority. Please help us by following our district mask mandate. We have several scholars that are losing their masks throughout the day. If possible, please try to send your child with some type of mask lanyard or other means for holding onto their mask. As always we appreciate your support!

Below is some helpful information to help guide parent's when deciding to send your child to school or not.

This month we will be kicking off our school fundraiser. Soon, your child will be bringing home information on popcorn sales. Our goal is to complete the purchase of a school popcorn machine and scholar incentives. Thank you for contributing to our school success!

Please make sure to check our campus web page frequently at as important information is posted there. You can also follow me on Twitter to keep updated and informed about school openings and schedules. Thank you for trusting us with your child and your partnership with Cactus Trails.
