Grijalva Information



What Makes Us Special

Grijalva Elementary, named after Arizona Congressman Raul M. Grijalva, is located in Midvale Park. We are a K-5 school with a bilingual strand at each grade level. Grijalva Elementary is a recipient of the RAMP award (Recognized American School Counselors Association) which recognizes the absolute best practices in school counseling. Fewer than 200 schools in the United States have attained this recognition.

The Grijalva School Community promotes the success of all children by:

  • Supporting each child's academic, emotional and social success
  • Defining and communicating expectations
  • Modeling and acknowledging positive behaviors
  • Providing equitable educational opportunities for all children
  • Respecting all learners
  • Valuing a caring culture that extends to families and the community

A Note From The Principal (March 23, 2020)

Dear Grizzly Families,

I hope this message finds you and your family healthy and safe. The entire Grijalva staff sends our support and encouragement during this difficult time. As you know, school is closed by order of the Governor through April 10th. Despite the closure, our teachers are working diligently to provide educational opportunities for each student via online and packet based forms. Your child’s teacher will be in contact with you soon to check in and share updates about the educational opportunities that will be available. Our goal is to offer at home educational opportunities starting Monday March 30th.

Grab and Go breakfast and lunch is being served at over 100 locations throughout the district. We are fortunate to have a stop at Grijalva from 11:19-11:29 am each day. All children 18 years of age and younger are able to receive a hot lunch and breakfast for the next day. Please adhere to the CDC guidelines and maintain 6 feet of space between you and other families.

Please continue to monitor the TUSD webpage for important updates and guidance. Please like our Grijalva page on Facebook as we often share information via Facebook. If you have a phone number or email change please email me at megan.chavez@tusd1.org so our records can be updated. Parent Link phone calls and email will be the primary mode of communication during the closure.

We miss you all and wish you the best in the coming days. Continue to stay home, avoid crowds, and wash your hands frequently. Our collective commitment will support the health of our entire community.
