We are one of five schools in the Santa Cruz Valley Unified School District No. 35, located in Rio Rico, Arizona. San Cayetano believes that a positive partnership between teachers, students, and parents is the formula for success, and we have tremendous support available for our students. These include, but are not limited to, an engaged parent community that supports student learning, and a qualified and dedicated teacher and paraprofessional workforce.

A Message from our Principal

Dear Cheetah Families,

It’s hard to believe this year is coming to an end. I can’t help but look back at all the wonderful happenings here at San Cayetano and be overjoyed! I feel fortunate to be a part of a community that works together to provide such immense support for our Cheetahs!

As you prepare for the coming season I ask that you remain dedicated to your child’s success. Please ensure that your child is in school every day and arrives on time. This is a simple yet critical factor in their academic progress. You play an important role in setting these daily expectations.

I would like to thank you and our staff for doing an outstanding job in providing our children with so much in the way of academic support and encouragement. I look forward to our continued partnership in keeping San Cayetano a nurturing and positive learning environment. I wish you and your family wonderful holiday season filled with happiness and good health!

Yours in partnership,

Mimi Renteria
