Principal's message

Dear Parents and Community,

Welcome to the 2015-16 school year! Over the summer, I had the opportunity to reflect on the successes of the past year and to anticipate what lies ahead. I am very excited about the upcoming 10th Anniversary year for Wildfire Elementary School!

Our celebration begins with a new mural to celebrate reading in the Media Center. See if you can find the hidden “10” in the artwork! Our Muralist Ken Keene has done an amazing job giving life to our favorite characters. Thank you PTO for giving us such a beautiful wall for our library.

At the beginning of every year, Principal’s and teachers, just like students, are excited for the first day of school. Teachers have prepared their rooms and thought of many new ideas and themes to present to students. We all want the year to go “just right”! I hope as we " ring in" the new school year that you will join me in setting some goals to improve student learning. Our expectations for
our students at Wildfire are always increasing.Great schools can never afford to rest on our laurels and not continue to strive for increasing excellence.
Great schools also have great staffs. We have hired amazing teachers this year! At 3 rd Grade, Rachelle Samora joins us from Echo Mountain Intermediate where she has 3 years of teaching experience. Katheryn Kerr will be teaching Resource and Michele Palermo will teach the .5 Resource position in the afternoons. Alexander Chapman will be joining us in Band and Justin Price will be doing the STEM position, which will replace computers in our specials rotation.

Once again, Welcome Back! Thank you for choosing to be a part of Wildfire Elementary School in
Paradise Valley!
