Message from the Principal

Dear Dust Devil Families and Community,

It is hard to believe we are already into September. The year is off to a great start and a lot of exciting things are happening at Copper Basin K-8. First, our discipline referrals are down. At this time last year, 62 discipline referrals had been written. This year, a total of 13 referrals have been submitted to the office. Our students are doing a phenomenal job following the school-wide expectations and the teachers are consistently teaching and reviewing the same expectations on a daily basis.

Mrs. Bolton and Mrs. Garner hosted our annual Howdy to Night last month and had a great turnout. Parents and students walked from classroom to classroom learning new strategies to help with their academics at home. It was great to see all of the familiar faces and the new families to Copper Basin. We are currently planning more community events for the school year and hope to see all of you there.

Our staff PLC’s are hard at work planning and implementing new strategies in the classrooms. Math PLC’s have been working hard to develop effective intervention for math during their reteach and enrich blocks.  ELA has been working on dissecting their standards in order to build vertical articulation. Social Studies PLC’s have developed formatives to help students with map skills.  Our Primary PLC is working on identifying students’ needs, based off of our recent Dibels data. Our Specials PLC is developing Thinking Maps activities to build writing across the curriculum.

We are very excited with the direction Copper Basin K-8 is going and would like to invite every parent and community member to get involved with the school. Our new PTO is off and running strong and needs volunteers. This is not a commitment that is going to take up all of your time. You choose how much time you would like it to take out of your schedule. You can be involved in every event or you can donate a few hours preparing something at home for the teachers. Any amount of donated time is greatly appreciated and welcomed. To acquire more information you can contact me or our Volunteer Coordinator, Steve Sher at or
