Welcome to Santa Fe Elementary School!
We are blessed to have a community with a strong commitment to excellence in education, which is reflected by our quality curricular and co-curricular programs and activities here at Santa Fe Elementary and throughout the District.
Our school includes students in preschool through sixth grade, and we also offer programs for learning support and academic enrichment such as Gifted Education, Reading Recovery Program, Title I Reading, Math Club (grades 4th-6th), Student Council, Sixth Grade Band, and tutoring at all grade levels. Students in the fifth and sixth grade have the opportunity to participate in our athletic programs/tournaments, which include volleyball, basketball and track. Additionally, we have a school-wide comprehensive Character Education program which is reinforced each week by recognizing our "Chiefs of the Week". These are students who have demonstrated Santa Fe Pride and have been recognized by staff as being active examples of our monthly focus.
Our school utilizes a proactive system of discipline, known as the B.I.S.T. (Behavior Intervention Support Team) Program. This program allows staff to assist students in learning how to take good care of themselves and make good choices while also taking responsibility for the choices that they make. The focus of this program, grace with accountability, has a direct impact on helping our students become responsible, caring school citizens while also protecting instruction time for all students.
The Santa Fe Elementary P.T.O. (Parent-Teacher-Organization) is also very active in our school and provides support services and funding for school activities and programs. Our community organizations are also very supportive of our students and programs at school. “Santa Fe Pride” is our motto, and we work hard to show this pride every day in all that we do. We invite you to come by or contact us to visit about the exciting things that are happening at Santa Fe Elementary!
