Desert Willow

To provide students with an educational foundation for life-long success

Principal's Message

 Parents and Family Members:

Things are running very smoothly and we are in a good routine at Desert Willow. Next week (August 25), we are practicing fire and lock-down drills. In the coming weeks we will be setting the after-school schedule for clubs, including choir, art, and chess. Please look for flyers that will be sent home in the coming weeks.
The office requests your help with an on-going problem; changes in go-home instructions after 1:30 pm. A good portion of our students are in Reteach and Enrich during the final period of the day. This instruction is critical. Furthermore, there is a good chance that the children are in different classrooms receiving instruction during that time. Trying to track down a child during that time is difficult and often requires interruption of critical learning. If you know that your child will be picked up early for an appointment, etc, please notify the office early in the day. Please do not call the school after 1:30 pm to make changes to go-home instructions. Thank you.
A very special thank you to Smith's Grocery. They held a drive to purchase supplies and school shirts for Desert Willow. We are very fortunate to have community support from merchants, like Smith's.
Also, a special thank you to Mrs. Julie Pennington of Bit of Heaven Salon. She donated her time and the materials to dye my hair purple. I can not begin to tell you how much enjoyment the students received from seeing me with purple hair!

Thank you for entrusting us with your child's education.

Kevin Curran
