Peachjar Flyer Distribution


Our district wants families to know about valuable programs and resources in the community. To facilitate delivery of this information, approved community organizations can send their flyers home to families digitally through Peachjar.

To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed.

● Visit www.peachjar.com
● Register as a Program Provider (account type)
● Upload your flyer for approval

Your flyer will be automatically submitted to the district office for approval. Once approved, your flyer will be emailed to parents and posted on each school’s web flyerboard for your selected duration of time. Peachjar charges a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school.


 

Dear Sweeney Parents and Families,

Sweeney Elementary will be a fully in-person school next year.  Our teachers will only be teaching the children in their classrooms who are on site. No virtual learning.

If you would like your child to remain in a remote learning setting for next year, the district is offering Desert Sage Academy.  This will be a K-12 virtual school. All learning will be done by remote teachers who will teach your child from their Chromebook or other electronic device. 

If you are interested in enrolling your child for remote learning with Desert Sage Academy, please fill out one of the following surveys.  The first link is for students going into kinder - 5th.  The second link is for those going into 6th - 12th next year.

If you don't wish to do virtual learning for your child and plan on your child returning to Sweeney next year, you do not need to fill out anything. 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Dolores Montano-Pena, Principal

SWEENEY ELEMENTARY 
HOME OF THE COUGARS!

 Welcome and thank you for visiting our website. Sweeney is located on the south side of Santa Fe and offers quality education to a very diverse community. Our program serves Pre-K, Kindergarten-5th Grade Students, in a 50/50 Bilingual model. The goal of the Bilingual model is to give students the opportunity to become fluent in English and Spanish.


Multiple programs are offered at Sweeney such as chess club, robotics, National Dance Institute (NDI), Cooking with Kids, (to list a few) all of which encourage participation from parents and students together. 

After School and Extended Learning programs are also available to students. Academic Support is provided by Reading Quest, and Reading is Magic, both programs consist of highly qualified volunteer tutors in math and reading.

Big Brothers Big Sisters play a valuable role along with PMS and Gerard's House in offering social and emotional support to our students. Sweeney values and honors the whole child.

Extracurricular activities are also included at our school, boys' and girls' basketball, guitar classes, violin classes and cultural performances.
