A Message from Our Principal

Hello Stallion Families-

It is the time of year for reflection over what we have accomplished over the first half of the school year. I am proud of the work our students, staff, and faculty have accomplished since August. Just a few highlights over the last few months include:

  • Adding a full-time social worker and reading coach to our campus
  • Hosting free Love and Logic parenting classes for the Combs district
  • Raising money for the fight against cancer and donating it to My Hope Bag, a local charity
  • Our first quarter Galileo benchmark tests increased over last year’s scores
  • Orchestra and band had the first concerts of the school year 
  • The first annual Spooktacular event was a huge success
  • Our school has been featured in the San Tan Ledger

And that’s only the halfway point! We are wrapping up second quarter Galileo benchmarks, and I am looking forward to continued growth as we move through the school year. Each student who increases his or her score from first quarter will receive a ticket to give a staff member of his or her choosing an ice bucket bath! We have had ten brave teachers volunteer for this. We will include pictures in our next newsletter.

I wish all of you a safe and happy holiday season and a happy new year.

Best regards,

Bradley Shepstead
