Good evening Tiger Families,


I hope you all had a fantastic Spring Break. Over the spring break report cards were sent home. Please notify our front office if you have a different address or did not receive a report card. Additionally if your child has failed a core class, you will also receive a letter requiring them to attend the after school 21 st century program. If they are not already enrolled, they must pick up an application and return it to our counselor Ms. Gourley with a parent or guardian signature. Transportation is provided for the after school program.


This Thursday, March 23 rd Desert Wind will host Parent Teacher conferences from 6:30pm -8:00pm. Please plan to attend and ask any questions regarding your child’s grades. Teachers will be available in their rooms and do their very best to answer questions.


If you have not yet had the opportunity for your student to take school pictures we will have Spring Pictures on March 24 th. Students will be able to have their pictures taken during their Social Studies classes. Have your child dress to impress and capture their middle school smile.


AZMERIT and AIMS testing will begin next week. From March 27-31 st there will be a block schedule. Students will be testing for 90 minute blocks of time. The beginning and end of the school day will remain the same but students will meet with only 3 of their classes daily. These are very important assessments and we need your help to ensure that your child gets plenty of sleep the night before.


If you know someone who is interested in Blended Learning for the upcoming school year please let them know that there will be a Blended Learning information night on Tuesday March 28 th in the Desert Wind Library from 7:00pm -8:00pm.


Please have a wonderful evening and contact me with any questions and/or concerns. I can be reached at or 568-7110 EXT 3108.
