A Message from Our Superintendent

Dear Families,

On behalf of the governing board and Bouse Elementary School, I welcome you for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year. As the new superintendent, I am both humbled and proud to serve our students, parents, and staff. I was born and raised here in Arizona as well as being a product of the k-12 school system and the University of Arizona. I look forward to meeting students and parents as we begin the school year. On another note, I would like to introduce and welcome our new support and certified staff:

  • Shelly Arora - Teacher (4th & 5th grade) 
  • Tim Huhtala - Head of Maintenance 
  • Sherry Smart - Custodial Services

We also have two current staff members who have been promoted and are serving in new positions:

  • Heather Huhtala - Receptionist/Paraprofessional 
  • Suzanne Leder - Administrative Assistant/Business/Human Resources

Please welcome them. Bouse upcoming events and important dates are as follows:

  • July 30-August 2: Student enrollment week
  • July 31: Staff return to work
  • August 2: Back to School Night and Open House/Title 1 dinner at 6:00 p.m.
  • August 6: School begins

I would strongly encourage our parents to be actively involved in your children’s education. A good way to do this is to attend our back to school night/open house dinner on August 2. You will have an opportunity to meet your son and/or daughter’s teacher(s) as well as have dinner as a family with me and our school staff. We are here to support our parents and students. Please let us know how we can better serve you this school year. Again, I look forward to meeting you and providing a quality education to our students at Bouse Elementary.

Educationally yours,

Patricia Moreno

Dr. Patricia Moreno
