Thank you for visiting our online home. We hope you'll feel welcome here. We also invite you to visit us at our physical location. We are proud of our beautiful school, the newest building in the Wickenburg Unified School District. We appreciate the voters who passed the $9.8 million bond allowing the construction of our modern two-story building in 2002. Our students, from kindergarten through fifth grade, love visiting the central library.
We encourage you to spend some time on our website. Learn about us and our mission to serve your children. You'll find a page that answers frequently asked questions. If your question isn't answered there, please contact us. Browse through our helpful links for parents and students. The calendar will let you know what's coming up soon. Then come back often to keep up with the news and events at our school.
We invite you to visit our school, in person as well as on-screen. Our staff will be happy to work show you around and get to know you better. We know you'll be impressed by the beautiful campus, positive atmosphere, and enthusiastic, energetic students.
Dear Hassayampa Family,
We will soon be saying goodbye to summer and welcoming back the routines of school! Hopefully, you have found plenty of time to have fun in the sun and enjoy time with your families and friends. I am excited to hear the stories of summer from both students and staff.
I am pleased to announce Hassayampa Elementary School received the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) grant. This grant will provide Hassayampa five years of funding ($630,000) to implement after-school programs. Keep an eye out for program details and sign-up information which should become available in September. Through partnerships with the Town of Wickenburg, Wickenburg Fire and Police Departments, Desert Caballeros Western Museum the AZ Game and Fish, University of Arizona SNAP-Ed Network, and Wickenburg High School (the current 21st CCLC recipient), Hassayampa will be able to offer a rich variety of highly engaging programs. We are excited for the future possibilities that the 21st CCLC program can provide for our students and families!
Join me in welcoming eight new staff members to Hassayampa. We are excited to have all of them join the Hassayampa family!
Please know that staff at Hassayampa work very hard every day to create a rigorous and challenging curriculum, as well as a positive and welcoming school climate for students and help them develop and grow into responsible and respectful citizens. Not a day goes by when we are not reflecting on how we can improve as a school. With that said, please also know the great importance you play in your role as the parent. You have the greatest impact on your child's school performance.
Although our website is one communication tool to visit regularly, you will also want to visit and "like" us on Facebook. The Coyote Den, our monthly newsletter, informs parents of special events, celebrations, and activities. Parents may also communicate with the school and individual staff through e-mail or by telephone. Once again, I will host a monthly Principal's Coffee on the first Wednesday of the month. Join me for an opportunity to share celebrations and Hassayampa happenings.
For more information, please read the full back to school letter.
I look forward to working with you and your child as we start out new school year, because together we can make a difference.
