Welcome to Coatimundi Middle School

Located at the end of Avenida Coatimundi and nestled away into the Patagonia Mountains, the Spanish Colonial style architecture of Coatimundi Middle School creates a welcoming impression of culture and community. Our school is located in the town of Rio Rico, Arizona, approximately 15 miles north of the Mexican border town of Nogales and is part of the Santa Cruz Valley Unified School District. Our school population is primarily of Hispanic heritage with a cultural capital centered on family and community.

The adage “it takes a village to raise a child” in the context of education can be translated to, “It takes a professional learning community to effectively educate our students.” Here at Coatimundi Middle School we are always striving to be an effective professional learning community. We were rewarded for our efforts by the Arizona Educational Foundation with an A+ Status in 2011. The Arizona Educational Foundation created the A+ Schools of Excellence Program as a comprehensive school assessment tool to identify, celebrate, and recognize overall educational excellence in schools throughout Arizona.

Our mission and vision statements are our school’s guiding forces. You might notice that present in both the mission and vision statement is the word “everyone.” All stakeholders must be involved in the learning process in order to be successful; we must act in rhythm to achieve a true professional learning community.

A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians of Coatimundi Middle School Students:

The final month of the school year is here already! Hands-down this will also be the busiest month of the year with so much going on. Students, please continue to focus on academics and positive behavior so that you finish the last quarter successfully. We will mail 4th quarter report cards, honor roll, and perfect attendance certificates to you.

Congratulations to our 8th grade students and parents on your transition to the high school! We are very proud of all of you.

We will have our 8th grade transition dance on Wednesday, May 24 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The 8th grade transition ceremony is on Thursday, May 25 at 2:30 p.m. in the Rio Rico High School gymnasium. Like before, we require students to dress in their school uniform for the ceremony. We will not allow any student who is not following the dress code to participate in the ceremony. There will be no exceptions! We allow students to bring four guests on this day. We will send home a letter prior to the transition with detailed information.

Good luck to all of you. Have a fantastic and safe summer!

Sincerely,

Lerona Dickson

Lerona Dickson, Principal
