Mrs Cherryl Paul

Dear Families and Community Members,

Sacaton was honored to host the suicide prevention month kick-off Glow Walk event. We welcomed over 300 people to our Middle School track. All Sacaton employees receive annual suicide prevention training as our number one responsibility is student safety.

Our student enrollment continues to climb.  Sacaton Elementary School District (SESD) serves approximately 630 students at two schools: Elementary School (grades PreK-4), Middle School (grades 5-8).  Fostering good relationships to meet student academic, social and emotional needs is essential. This year we are using standards-based practices to support the new standards-based report cards and encouraging students to take ownership of the learning process. We believe the primary goal of grading is to give feedback to both students and parents/families about a student’s progress in the learning process.  A comprehensive curriculum and a variety of enrichment opportunities are offered to students, including our Legacy Community Orchard service project.

We believe in effective communication between parents/families and the school. Through open and honest interactions, parents/families and staff can begin to understand one another’s ideas about learning, discipline, and other topics. Such communication helps everyone to work together to improve student performance and contribute to district-wide enhancements. Families, schools, and community all contribute to student achievement; the best results come when all three work together.  

While technology innovations like the Internet, e-mail, and instant messaging enable people to communicate and transfer information rapidly, this emergence of new technologies can also bring about miscommunication and inaccurate perceptions.  We seek to provide various techniques and strategies to improve two-way communication between home and school.  We are committed to use social media platforms to reach as many stakeholders as possible. Including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We have an open door policy and welcome community input. We urge you to become actively involved in your child’s education and a partner to SESD. I look forward to seeing you at the upcoming lunch with the Superintendent, scheduled for September 19th in classroom D-8 at 11:30 a.m.

Together we will accomplish more and improve education at Gila River as Sacaton students are ready to Be the Change. YES!
