Message from the Principal

 Dear Copper Basin K8 Community:

My name is Scott Johnson and I am extremely excited and honored to join the community of Copper Basin K8 as the new principal. Let me take a moment to tell you about myself and my background. I bring many types of educational experiences to Copper Basin K8.  My educational career spans 13 years: I spent five years as a middle school science and social studies teacher, two years as a Dean of Students, and six years as an Assistant Principal.  My undergraduate degree in elementary education is from Eastern Michigan University.  I then obtained a Master of Educational Leadership Degree from Northern Arizona University.

There are so many great things that already happen at Copper Basin K8 and I look forward to working with the staff, students, parents, and community to build on that strong foundation for our future.  I am very passionate about education and I look forward to partnering with you to continue providing our students with a rigorous, engaging, and high-quality school experience. As the parent of two boys, ages five and ten, I recognize the importance of strong home-school communication. I believe that by working together, we can ensure that your child’s social, emotional, and academic needs are met.

As parents, you play an integral role as a part of the Dust Devil Family and in the education of your child. Your involvement in your child’s education will help him/her achieve more success and have a positive outlook toward school. Please be sure to read the monthly newsletters that will be sent home and calendars that will be on our website. I’d also like to encourage you to join our Parent Teacher Organization that actively supports our staff in providing our children with the best educational experience and learning opportunities possible.

As part of my regular routine, you will find me out and about on campus during morning arrivals, afternoon dismissals, and throughout the day. I look forward to the opportunity to begin my relationship with the students, staff, and families of the Dust Devil community. I can be reached via email at  or by phone at 480-888-7500. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or good things you see at Copper Basin.


Best Regards,

Scott Johnson
