Are your kiddos behind on their Vaccines? 

State law requires our students to be caught up or exempt from vaccinations in order to attend school.  Britanee in the front office can fill you in on what vaccines your child(ren) needs to be compliant.

No insurance? No problem! Mesa Public Health offers free vaccines in multiple locations. See the list on the left for more details!

Please don't hesitate to reach out to the office staff with any questions! 

A Message from the Director

Dear Parents,

On Friday, October 26th, from 5:00-7:00 we will be holding our Halloween Mercado on campus. The students and families will receive money ($1=1 Mercado Bill) that they can spend purchasing items from the vendors at the marketplace. The vendors are the elementary students and they have designed and will run their own mini-stores/booths where families can purchase food items, crafts, etc., with their Mercado Bills. 

This is a valuable experience for our students, helping them gain awareness of budgets and negotiation skills. It is part of our school-wide financial literacy program and gives the children an opportunity to experience real-world commerce and business plans.

We hope you can make it to this annual fall event. All children are invited to wear their Halloween costumes, but please note that no masks or weapons will be permitted. We look forward to a fun Halloween Mercado with you and your students.

Sincerely, Rachel Q. Lichtenberger, M.Ed.
