A Message from Principal Pieper:

October is an exciting month at Desert Willow.  We will have our second Brown Bag Lunch of the school year on October 6th.  Students and staff have been working hard focusing on academics and preparing for Parent/Teacher Conferences.  We are enjoying learning from our new ELA Curriculum, Wonders! Conferences will be held on Thursday, October 19th, and Friday, October 20th.  Information will be coming home soon, so please be sure to reserve a time to meet with your child’s teacher.  We will also have our fall book fair available for our families to visit starting on Monday, October 16th.  Fall Break is October 22nd through 21st, I hope our families spend time together and make wonderful memories to last a lifetime.

Our Wolves have been bursting with great character this year!  We will be celebrating their character at our first quarter character celebration on Thursday, October 19th.  Students will be able to participate in a variety of activities – from arts and crafts to watching a movie, playing outside and many other choices.  We are excited to celebrate all the hard work and great character at DW! 

Our students took part in campaigning for a position on our Student Council.  The speeches were well thought out and showed great character traits! I am very proud of all of my students who worked hard to be a Leader in our school. Elections have been completed and I would like to Congratulate the following 2017-2018 officers:

Student Council President:  Anaya Guadian
Student Council Vice President:  Jayline Robles
Student Council Treasurer:   Vinny Lopez
Student Council Secretary:  Blayne Abercrombie

A great way to stay in touch is to visit our school website:  Choose Desert Willow under the tab “Our Schools.”  From there you will be able to sign up for our e-news, which will send emails of upcoming dates and important reminders. New this year, we also have our Desert Willow Facebook page: @DesertWillowCGESD.  Thank you for being a part of a successful first quarter at Desert Willow!
