A Blue Ribbon School
Nautilus Elementary School has been named a "2011 National Blue Ribbon School." A press release issued September 15 by the U.S. Department of Education said that 305 U.S. schools (256 public and 49 private) were chosen for this honor. Only four of them are from Arizona. The Department will honor the selected schools at a conference and awards ceremony Nov. 14-15 in Washington, D.C.
Nautilus is rated an "A" school by the Arizona Department of Education.
We teach our students to be good citizens. Did you know that in 2012, Arizona had one of the lowest voter turnout rates in the nation? Arizona ranked 45th out of the 50 states with only 53.3% of eligible voters voting. Voting is not only a right, but one of the most important duties of American citizens. The United States was founded on the belief that citizens would have a choice in their leaders and policies. In order to ensure that our students vote when they become adults, it is important that parents register to vote and vote on Election Day. Franklin Roosevelt once said, “Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting.”
If you are not a registered voter or have recently moved and need to update your address, please visit the link below. Voter registration is easy in Arizona and just takes a few minutes. Please talk to your children about voting. It makes a difference!
At Nautilus Elementary, we believe children are our future! We provide a safe, caring atmosphere, encouragement, and high expectations so student can reach their full social, emotional, and academic potential. Everyone has the capacity to learn. We will help our students become responsible, productive citizens, and life-long learners. Education is the responsibility of the entire community. The faculty and staff of Nautilus Elementary are very happy to welcome you to our school. We are confident you will enjoy working and learning with us. We sincerely hope you take an active part in our school activities and you will support us in every way possible. One of our goals, as professional educators, is to give each child the best education possible. With your help and support, we can accomplish this goal!
