We are very excited about the new school year.  As Saguaro opens our doors to another amazing year, we continue to strive for and achieve our mission to “Educate, Inspire, Believe and Succeed…..One Community, One School, One Family and One student at a time.” Every student, staff, and family at Saguaro is very important. Together we can kick off the year to a great start! We would like to welcome new and returning students back to school. School begins on Wednesday, August 9, 2017. 


Parents and students are strongly encouraged to attend our Saguaro Back to School Family Night. It will be held on August 7, 2017 from 5:45 - 7:00 p.m.  This will give students an opportunity to see their classrooms and meet their teacher.  The event will also provide parents with valuable information specific to their child’s classroom. If Saguaro students need a backpack, they can enter a raffle to win one of over 100 donated bags.  Class lists will be posted on August 2, 2017 in front of the school office.  Classroom information will not be given over the telephone and no classroom changes will be permitted.  Classroom supply lists are available in the Saguaro office. 


As we continue to focus on character and academic excellence, we encourage parents to be involved and communicate with Saguaro on a continuous basis. Together we can foster hope and build lasting relationships which will promote success and citizenship.  We will continue to emphasize the “Be Kind” project and with the Responsive Classroom, as well as, starting The 7 Mindsets which teaches social emotional learning and will empower our students to take an active role in their education and their future. 


The Saguaro family will work together as a team to achieve success, and provide opportunities for students to build and enrich character.  We look forward to a positive and successful year at Saguaro Elementary School.  “Intelligence plus character-that is the true goal of education.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
