Message from Principal- June Celaya

  • Hello Tiger Families,

    We are well into our second semester and working hard to prepare our students for the upcoming AZMERIT testing.  Progress grades are now available for you to review with your child.  Please make sure that you regularly check your child’s backpack for notices to parents as well as any homework.  Children at this age often put everything in their backpacks and forget to complete work or hand you important papers. The third quarter report cards will be sent home in the mail the week of March 18th.

    Desert Wind is excited to announce that our Eighth grade Promotion Ceremony will return to the Desert Wind campus on Wednesday, May 22nd at 5:30 in the Desert Wind Gymnasium.  We are happy to bring this home so that you can have a more personal experience to celebrate your child’s success in completing middle school.  Due to our limited capacity however, we will issue three tickets per student for family members to attend. Additional detailed information will be distributed to all 8th grade students next week.  We hope this information is helpful when making your promotion day plans.

    Within the next 2 weeks 6th and 7th grade students will begin to receive information regarding their schedules for next year.  Our counselor will deliver elective forms to their Social Studies teachers so that students can fill out their elective choices.  You and your child can review their choices and return the signed form with your student to their teacher.  As always we try to accommodate all requests but must maintain reasonable class sizes.

    Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  I can be reached at  Have a wonderful evening.
