Principal's Message

  • Hello,

    I am thrilled to welcome you to another great year!  This is my 21st year at Acacia and I could not be more proud of the awesome family of staff, parents, students and community partners.  We like to refer to Acacia as the "second happiest place on earth".  We combine a safe and motivating atmosphere with talented staff and involved parents to make Acacia a great educational experience! We are so proud of our "A" Rating from the Arizona Department of Education, in addition to being awarded  "National Title I Distinguished School" for Arizona in 2013.  We are also thrilled to be a four-time A+ School of Excellence which was awarded by the Arizona Educational Foundation in 2010, 2014, 2018 and again this year! This makes us an Arizona A++++ School of Excellence and the only public, elementary school in the state of Arizona with four consecutive A+ awards!

    Each year, Acacia strives to be even better than the year before. Our school motto, "We are Acacia and together we can do ANYTHING" clearly defines our beliefs and never ending goals. Parent involvement is crucial to the success of our school and we invite you to volunteer for as many activities as you can.  Our PTA assists us in planning a variety of family fun nights.  Consequently, there is always something happening at Acacia! I invite you to stop in and experience the excitement and passion for yourself.  If you should need help with anything please feel free to contact me.
