Message from Principal- June Celaya

  • Welcome Families,

    Happy New Year and welcome to the start of second semester at Desert Wind.

    Because Desert Wind has seen a large increase in enrollment we had to restructure the master schedule of classes and hire two additional staff members.  Mrs. Negrette is teaching 6th and 8th grade Language Arts and Mr. Warren has joined us to teach 8th grade Social Studies.  We have also balanced out all class sizes in core and elective classes to ensure that class sizes are reduced.  With that said, we cannot accommodate requests to change schedules.  We realize that your child may not be enrolled in the elective of their choice but we have to maintain lower classes sizes across the board in all areas.  Please support us in this effort as it is essential to all students’ opportunity for academic success.

    Please be patient as Mrs. Baird is servicing all 800 students at Desert Wind.  We enjoy and welcome the rapid growth and work hard to ensure that all we run smoothly.

    Our winter sports have begun.  Girls Basketball is under the direction of coach Cory Steeves.  Football is under the direction Stephan Nelson.  As always in order to try out for a sport all students must have a completed athletic packet and receive a blue clearance slip through Mrs. Lubag in the front office. Students must have a physical before they can tryout.  All information regarding clearance to participate  in sports will be in the athletic packets located in the front office. 

    Let's have a great second semester!
