Welcome to Sacaton Elementary School District, Home of the Braves - YES!

 Dear Families,

 Sacaton Elementary School District afforded   students many exciting educational opportunities   during and after school. We believe these   additional programs provide students with a       well-rounded educational experience as well as opportunities to inspire them to pursue personal learning goals and delve into topics of interest. Our full-day preschool, wi-fi on our school buses, gifted education, interventions, band, PE, and after school activities provide students with extended learning time to promote higher levels of academic achievement and increased individualized talents. Once your child(ren) find activities that they enjoy, succeeding in the activity could ultimately build their confidence, self-esteem and improve attendance.

Our staff continues to encourage the development of literacy skills in all students. Students learn best in an environment that places emphasis on understanding their unique learning styles and adaptation of the curriculum and teaching methods to meet those needs.   Our dedicated teaching staff is working diligently to become more intentional in regards to instructional time -- truly every minute counts! We are encouraging you, whenever possible, to help increase student time in the classroom.

Every teacher is required to teach to the standards and assess student knowledge frequently. Learning is a partnership between the student, school, family, and community. Each and every student needs support to thrive and meet his or her own academic and personal potential. Assessments and report cards provide opportunities to celebrate accomplishments, set new goals, and plan for the future. Please take time to talk about these things as a family. Our students deserve a tremendous amount of credit for their work and accomplishments throughout the school year.

Assessment is an important aspect of teaching and learning. The Arizona state testing requires students to demonstrate proficiency in standards for reading, writing, mathematics, and science. All informal and formal assessments results are used to drive instruction. Our goal is to provide students with specific, timely feedback, which will assist them in self-assessment and goal setting. Teachers will continue to support testing for all students in an environment conducive to success. Parents can help by establishing a “take it seriously and do your best” attitude while helping students understand that parts of a test may be difficult.

It is especially important for children to arrive at school ready to be successful during testing week. Some steps that can be taken at home to promote success include a balanced dinner, a good night’s sleep, and most important, attending school during the testing week. Please take the opportunity to meet with teachers during family/teacher conference week (week of March 9) to discuss your child’s educational goals and learn more about the AZM2.  Testing dates for the upcoming 3-8th grade assessments are March 25 – April 17. Specific testing dates per grade level will be identified within the next few weeks and communicated to families.

In an effort to be proactive, we are requesting the opportunity to get on the District Community agendas as well as the Elders Council agendas so that we can hear to listen and work towards resolving concerns. Family and community input is important to us and we welcome all to take the School Surveys located on our website. As long as we continue to work together as a community and support one another there are no obstacles that will impede our progress. Together we are making significant differences in the lives of our students. YES!
