A Message from the Principal

Dear Parents and Community Members,

Welcome to Calabasas Pre K-8 School for the 2019–2020 school year.

Ms. Bethany Patterson, PrincipalAs one of the newest members of the Calabasas PreK–8 family, let me begin by saying I am excited to be part of this new journey with you. My goal is to continue building upon the solid foundation and successes of those who have walked in these “principal” shoes before me with our Calabasas teachers, staff, and most importantly, our students.

Though I am new to this school, I am not new to Santa Cruz Valley Unified #35. I served as assistant principal at Rio Rico High School for seven years before coming to Calabasas. There, I experienced first-hand what it takes to bring a school from “needs improvement” status to becoming an A+ School of Excellence. It takes teamwork - a focused and dedicated team that is committed to excellence for all students. I recognize that same determination here at Calabasas, and I am honored to be part of your team.

Let me assure you that I am ready to work together as we prepare all of our students, even our youngest, to set their sights on becoming college and career ready. 

I grew up in Wheatfield, New York, a small town of roughly 18,000 people near the Canadian border. Rio Rico feels very much like my hometown. This is a kind and humble community of hard-working families who want only the best for their children, including the best possible education. I promise to help achieve this for you.

My husband, Jonathan, and I, along with our two young daughters, enjoy being part of this southern Arizona community. We look forward to getting to know each of you in the coming years. Together we will strive for excellence for all students.

Sincerely,

Bethany Patterson

Bethany Patterson, Principal
