A Message from Principal Pieper:

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Welcome to March!  We sure are excited here at Desert Willow to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ Birthday on March 2nd!  This year, we will be celebrating with a Spirit Week.  

It’s time for our student led conferences!  Information will be sent home on February 27th – which will include a sign-up sheet and more details.  Don’t miss this great opportunity to see the amazing learning that is happening here at Desert Willow. 

We hope all of our families enjoy their time together over Spring Break!  When students return, it will be a busy 4th   quarter.  Students in grades 3-5 will be taking the AzMERIT test on April 3rd – 6th. Our 4th graders will take the AIMS test online April 9th – 11th. Please keep these testing dates in mind when making any appointments for April, so they will not conflict with testing.  

Thank you to parents and families for your continued support.  As always, I appreciate the conversations that we have to enrich the experience of your students here at Desert Willow.  My door is always open for you, and I welcome your feedback and discussions in person.  Have a great March!  “You’re off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So get on your way!


Yours In Education,

Melissa Pieper
