A Message from the Principal

Mr. John M. Fanning, PrincipalDear Parents,

As the 2016-17 school year comes to a close I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of those who have had an impact on the professional learning community that we call Calabasas School. This year has had many successes. Among the successes that we have taken part in include:

  • Celebrated the successes of our students, staff, and the stakeholders of Calabasas.
  • Modified our elementary master schedule, making it more conducive to student achievement, by purposely adding science and social studies into the schedule.
  • Continued partnering with the Green Valley Tutors, allowing our 6th & 7th graders an opportunity to learn from and get to know the wonderful people from Green Valley.
  • Continued to modify the middle school schedule to ensure a more focused REACH program.
  • Successful partnership with: Green Valley Tutors, Arizona Sonora Museum, Strengthening Families, and Arizona Cooperative Extension.
  • Successful completion of AzMERIT, the Arizona Department of Education’s state assessment.
  • Began, with great success, our 21st Century after school program.
  • Successfully completed our probationary period as part of the Southern Valley League athletics conference.
  • One of our teachers (Yemille Peiro) was the 2016-17 ARSA teacher of the year finalist.
  • We were the recipients of the 2016 Healthy Families/Healthy Youth grant.
  • We had the 2017 district spelling bee winner (Vanya Gupta).
  • Many of our students completed the John’s Hopkins SAT assessment with incredible results.

We are confident that the changes noted are considered “beat practice” and will continue to have a significant impact on students achievement. We will continue to make decisions which are in the best interest of safety, student achievement, and an effective learning environment.

Have a wonderful summer, and please ensure that your children continue to read, stay active, and immerse themselves in educationally related experiences during the summer.

Your Partner in Education,

John M. Fanning

Mr. John M. Fanning, Principal
