Fun Run

Fun Run was AMAZING!

This year's Fun Run Fundraiser was an amazing success due to the hard work of our students to gather pledges and for the generosity of family, friends, and the Desert Sage community. We are proud to announce that Desert Sage earned $31,152!


Thank you for your generosity and thank you to our fabulous PTO for organizing such a fun event for our students.

Scholastic Virtual Book Fair

Book Fair was a Blast!

Our annual Fall Book Fair was a blast. Students ordered tons of books and in turn helped our library earn $444 towards new books for our Desert Sage library.


Thank you everyone for ordering and helping to support our school library!

AZ School Tax Credit for Desert Sage

Your school tax credit donations can provide Desert Sage students with opportunities to after school and summer programs, field trips, music and athletic programs or any other extracurricular activity.


The Arizona tax credit program (A.R.S. 43-1089.01) allows a tax credit of up to $200 for individuals and up to $400 for married couples, filing jointly, in support of extracurricular activities.


The tax credit reduces your tax burden to the state of Arizona, dollar for dollar.


This year, AZ tax credit dollars can help us purchase needed capital items as well if donated to the general fund.
