Greetings from Principal Achtziger
Dear Saguaro Students and Families,
I want to welcome you to the upcoming 2019-2020 school year! Although you are still enjoying delightful
summer days with your family and friends, Saguaro is gearing up for another successful school year. The
information provided on this webpage will ensure that your student has a successful check-in process at
“Saber Days.” Please read and download the material, complete the necessary documents, and have your
student bring that completed material to their designated Saber Day date and time.
The first day of classes is Monday, August 5th. All 9th grade students will begin that day at 7:45 AM with a
special program in the Auditorium. They will finish their day at 2:20 PM. The cafeteria will be open between
11:20 - 11:50 AM for freshmen, but all grades are welcomed at lunch.
Students in grades 10, 11, and 12 will start their class day at 11:55 AM. All grades will proceed through their
regular class schedule from 11:55 AM until 2:20 PM.
Please note that buses will make an extra morning run on that Monday to accommodate our grades 10, 11,
and 12 students. Also, remember that Tuesday, August 6th will be a normal day for all students.
Additionally, the Saguaro Open House / Meet the Teacher Night will be on Monday, August 19th. The
evening begins at 5:30 PM, in our auditorium. This evening allows for parents/guardians to become familiar
with our campus and for teachers to convey to you their academic and classroom expectations. We look
forward to seeing you there!
The 2019-2020 school year is shaping up to be an excellent year at Saguaro. I encourage all students to
set high personal expectations, be prepared to work toward success, and take advantage of the
opportunities for involvement in the Sabercat community.
Enjoy the remaining days of summer. We look forward to the start of a great school year!
Saguaro High School
