Principal's Message

Dear Sahuaro Elementary Families,

Welcome to the 2020 – 2021 school year!  As the proud Principal of Sahuaro Elementary, it is a privilege and honor to lead such a dedicated staff and community.  I have had the wonderful opportunity to spend some time at Sahuaro during the end of the 18-19 school year as well as over the summer and I continue to be energized and impressed with the amazing staff, students, parents and community members that I have interacted with over the course of the last few months.   

I have worked in Education for the last 18 years, most recently in Administration for the past 7 years.  As both a parent and an educator, I know that every child can be successful.  Strong partnerships among parents, students and staff provide that essential foundation.  My staff and I are dedicated to ensuring that each student at Sahuaro Elementary has a positive experience in which they can continue to grow socially, emotionally and academically. 

My goals for our campus this year include connecting and collaborating with the entire Sahuaro family.  I will be holding “Monthly Chats with Mowery” for parents/guardians to join me first thing in the morning for open discussion about any topics you may be interested in discussing as well as a chance to answer any questions you may have for myself and my team. The first “Monthly Chat with Mowery” will be held on Wednesday, August 14 from 7:30 – 8:00 a.m.  If you would like to join us, please sign in at the front office and they will assist you with the location of where we will be meeting.

I feel fortunate to be part of such an amazing community here at Sahuaro.  I look forward to meeting each of you and working in a collaborative effort as our students continue on the path of academic excellence.  Please let me know if I can support you and your family in any way.
