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.
We are cruising through the 3rd quarter of the school year, and our students and teachers are working tenaciously to prepare for the upcoming AIMS test in April. Please help your children at home by confirming that they are completing all required assignments and homework. It is imperative that we work as a team to ensure students have learned all concepts and are ready to move on to the next grade level. Please continue to read with your child at home and quiz them on their math facts daily. Feel free to contact your child's teacher or the front office if you need assistance in helping your child at home.
There have been several highlights during the last few months. Our students and faculty recently developed a Student Leadership Team comprised of two 5th through 8th grade students. They were nominated by their classmates and selected by their teachers. They will meet monthly with Ms. Burton to plan ways to improve our school! Both our junior varsity and varsity boys basketball teams remained undefeated during their season! The varsity boys basketball team was recognized at the Governing Board meeting on January 13 for winning the conference championship. Our PTO sponsored a fantastic Snow Day for our students at the Tartesso Park on January 10. In addition, we hosted a successful Family Engineering Science Night on January 16. We are now offering three new clubs: K-3rd grade Art Club, 4th-8th grade Art Club and K-2nd grade Dance Club. At Tartesso, we continue to offer Surf N' Chess, Yearbook, Good News, Robotics, Odyssey of the Mind, Distance Learning, and Fitness clubs.
We have many upcoming events:
