Welcome to the Tartesso Elementary School website. We are located in Buckeye, Arizona and enjoy the benefits of an active and supportive community. As a part of Saddle Mountain USD, we foster a culture of high academic achievement. Our students thrive and excel in a variety of programs carried out in partnership with our caring, collaborative community. Whether you are a student, parent, prospective family, or community member, we have what you are looking for.
On March 8, our Odyssey of the Mind teams competed in the regional tournament at Scottsdale Community College. Two of our teams won 5th Place ribbons: Stackable Structure and The Haunted House. These teams were comprised of seven (3rd-5th grade) students. Mrs. Shipley did a fantastic job coaching all three teams, and the students did an excellent job working cooperatively to build their projects and perform on stage. A huge thank-you goes out to Grand Canyon University for choosing Tartesso Elementary School as the recipient of a $4,376 mini-grant that funded the Odyssey of the Mind after-school program. In addition, we had several parent helpers that volunteered their time to ensure our students were able to compete. Amy Waid, Jeff Maiville, and Crissy Maiville were our three judges, and our three volunteers were Nikki Hill, Tracy Wolfe-Hodges, and Jana Weston. All of these parents have been extremely supportive this year and are very much appreciated! We had many parents that came to support their children and watch all performances. Thank you for showing your dedication to the Tartesso Community!
