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.
We have reached the end of our first semester. I want to thank you for your continued support. Without you, we would not be able to provide a complete support system for your child to be successful. We will have a Math and Science Fair Night to continue our partnership. We will share strategies on how to continue helping your child at home.
We would like to welcome two wonderful people to Peña Blanca. Lupita Flores will be our new intervention aide. She comes to us with great experience working with students in a library setting. We also have Nellie Ruiz. She is a former SCVUSD employee and has vast experience teaching our children. We are very fortunate to have them join our Peña Blanca family!
December also brings us great activities. We hope to beat our record and have a lot of parents join us for our Walk to School on Wednesday, December 3. We will also have our wonderful Winter Wonderland Show by 4th and 5th graders followed by our First Annual Talent Show on December 11. We will hold auditions on Monday, December 8 afterschool. I hope to see you all there!
Happy holidays to all!
