Parent and Teacher Organization

Welcome to the S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) focused Navajo Elementary School in Scottsdale, Arizona. We hope that you find our faculty, level of parent involvement, and overall school curriculum to be as special as we do and second to none.

At Navajo you will find that we value all members of the community and welcome your involvement both voluntarily and monetarily throughout the school year.

From helping with PTO planned events like the trunk or Treat Fall Festival, Valentine’s Social and Auction, Teacher Appreciation Lunches, Science Night and much more! We also always need volunteers to help with harvesting our community garden, chaperoning kids during field trips, helping our amazing teachers(TAPS PROGRAM), Used Book Sale, Annual Fun Run, various Family Nights and supporting our fundraising activities. We rely on our wonderful parent community and your participation is is truly valued.

Your direct and indirect involvement is instrumental in your child(ren’s) development and the foundation to which our kids will learn to eventually teach others.

Our mission is to promote S.T.E.A.M. focused activities and community events which further develop our children, academically and socially, empowering them to value themselves and each other.
