Welcome to Peña Blanca Elementary

Welcome to the Internet home of Peña Blanca Elementary School. We are one of six schools in Arizona’s Santa Cruz Valley Unified School District, which includes six rural communities with populations ranging from 200 to 11,000 inhabitants, Rio Rico being the largest.

We designed this website to be a helpful tool for you to stay up-to-date and involved in our students’ lives. Devoted parents, students, staff, and community members should visit our site often. We’ve compiled answers to your most frequently asked questions, included information about the exciting clubs we have at Peña Blanca Elementary, and we'll help you stay organized with our interactive calendar. We value your participation and committed interest in your child’s education.

A Message from our Principal

Happy fall to all! This quarter, Peña Blanca staff is working hard to improve our intervention and re-teach programs. We will continue to look at student formatives to group students and give them targeted assistance. We will also continue to look at our grade level data to create new goals for improvement.

Peña Blanca would like to welcome two new staff members to our community. We have Lillian Cooper as our new attendance clerk. She has a lot of customer service experience which has been exemplified through her courteous ways and positive personality. Isaac  Burgueño is our new technology teacher assistant. He comes to us with a lot of experience working with students and has many ideas for teaching our students technology skills. We are very fortunate to have them part of our Peña Blanca family!!

Parents, we would like to remind you to look at your child’s homework folder daily to check the planner for messages or updates on your child’s academic progress. This will serve as additional communication with your child’s teacher and provide clarity with homework.    

I invite you to join us at our next site council meeting on November 6 at 8:00 a.m. We will share our school improvement plan and discuss our incoming science fair plans.    

This year we will be having Fine Dining with the Principal instead of Pizza with the Principal. Students that were given the most improved certificates for reading and math for the first quarter will join the principal in a fine dining experience. We will start with 4th and 5th grade for first quarter. We will be posting pictures of this great activity on our website and Facebook page.                           

Sincerely,

Ivonne Ferreira
