  • Principal’s Message

    Welcome to a new school year at Caliche.  We want your child to be safe, happy, and successful at Caliche Elementary.

     

    Your child will receive excellent instruction delivered by caring and dedicated teachers.  They will have access to modern and effective resources.  Most of all, they will become a member of the Caliche family…. “Once a Buff, Always a Buff”.  Whatever problems arise, we will stick together and work it out in a supportive and respectful way.

       

    A unique Caliche feature is that we are a small K-12 school with a very homey feel. We routinely arrange opportunities for our little Buffs to interact with our older Buffs which leads to generations of kids who have learned “Good Buff Behavior” which includes how to treat each other, how to respect authority, how to be a good student, and how to compete. We will do our best to make your child’s school experience a wonderful one.  Welcome to Caliche!


     Board of Education approved going forward with a local contractor.
