Lots of pirates showed up for our Title I and ELL night to search for the buried treasure hidden in books!
Students enjoyed reading games and pirate treasures.
Thanks to all of the teachers who helped make this wonderful event a reality!
Thank you to our new neighbors Burlington and the national nonprofit for your support of our school. We are overwhelmed by your generous $5,000 donation to help further our students’ education!
Sonoran Science Academy puts students first! We encourage students to strive in becoming the leaders of tomorrow.
Look how beautiful everyone looked at our Family Dance right before Spring Break!
When we said come dressed “FANCY” they really showed us their best. Even our School Board member, Mr Guvener, showed up with his beautiful daughter.
Rope Jumping champions competed for the opportunity to Silly String Mr Charlton!
At Sonoran Science Academy, we offer a learner-centered education with an emphasis on outcomes, visual aids, and technology integrated education.
Happy Pi Day! Every year on March 14th, the world celebrates Pi Day to recognize the mathematical constant, Pi.
Can we get a round of applause for Mrs. Hof? Our favorite principal bravely volunteered to be silly-stringed to honor the students who had raised $1,500 to fight heart disease.
Thank you for having fun with our students, and for setting such a great example of selflessness! 👏👏
K1 students this week were challenged with a science project. How can you build a shade structure for AZ cows?
The structure needs to hold 10 cows, and withstand AZ heat and wind.
Students decided that trees were the best structure for the job.🌳
Spring break in 2022 is shaping up to be a staycation for many families, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be fun! With these engaging activities, kids and parents can enjoy springtime with a STEM twist.
"What is this white stuff?"
Students who were Arizona natives thought the layer of frost after a cold night was amazing! Magnifiers helped the look at the crystal formations

When we met all of our meeting goals for the beginning of the year, we decided to give back to our community by donating three hours at St. Mary's Food Bank sorting food. We sorted 13,000 pounds of food for families with this amazing group!


It's never too early to save on school supplies!
This year we've partnered with 1st Day School Supplies. They will save us up to 30% over shopping at big box stores like Target, Walmart and Amazon. Buy early and save! If we sell 50 boxes in our first month, we will get entered in a drawing to win $2,500 worth of school order soon to help our Eagles! 🦅

Meet staff member Caryn Stiner!

What made you decide to become a teacher?
I knew at 6 years old that I wanted to become a teacher. I never seemed to waiver from becoming a teacher. The older I got the more I realized that I wanted to teach Elementary grade level.

What inspires you?
At the very beginning my first grade teacher inspired me. I wanted to be just like her when I grew up. She was kind and always smiling. She spoke in a gentle voice and she made all of us feel so very special. In all my 30+ years teaching from Pre-school to Kindergarten and now Reading in Title 1 Kinder-8th it's the children that inspire me everyday and every year. Their smiles, their wanting to share and talk with me and those eyes when they open wide when it finally clicks. The relationship that we have built throughout the school year inspires me to continue on teaching.

What quote or saying do you live your life by?
The quote I live my life by is (To treat others the way you would like to be treated.)
