     We are an AVID school which stands for " Advancement Via Individual Determination". We will be teaching our Third Graders strategies that will help them become more successful now and in the future. Our adopted college is Lehman College in New York. Our college mascot is the "Lightning Bug". Our college colors are: blue, green and white. It is very important that your child comes to school each day and on time. If your child is going to be absent, please notify the office. If your child needs to be picked up early, please contact the office prior to 1:00 pm. If you have any problems, concerns or questions please call me at (480) 472-8671. I will return your call at my earliest convenience. My school email is Keep an eye out for school newsletters and reminders.  The agenda is a great tool for organization as well as communication. I am looking forward to meeting with each one of you during our scheduled conferences in October and January. Thank you in advance for your support this school year.
