A Message from Our Principal

Dear Hawk Families,

Congratulations to all of our students who set goals and received awards. We are proud of how many students are making gains with the new math fact awards. Academic achievement begins at home and as a school we appreciate your partnership with our staff and extra time helping you instill great work habits in your children. Mark your calendars for early release day on Thursday, February 5, 2015. There will be a noon dismissal that day.

  • We will celebrate our love of reading week the week of February 2-6.
  • Second graders will perform their rodeo show on February 23 at 6:00 p.m. in the multipurpose room. It is really cute. Don’t miss this one! Remember, no school on Thursday and Friday, February 24 and 25 in observance of Fiesta de los Vaqueros, a time honored Tucson tradition.
  • Sixth graders will showcase their hard work at the science fair on Thursday, February 6 at 6:00 p.m. in the library.

Read Principal Wells's full letter in our February newsletter, found on our News & Events page.

Respectfully,
