 Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week is almost upon us! Time to show our Cougar pride and commitment in raising awareness for this great campaign!

Started back in 1985, Red Ribbon Week has become the oldest and largest drug campaign in the country. Citizens in communities across the United States began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise drug awareness and to honor murdered DEA agent, Enrique Camarena, and his fight against drugs.

We have an exciting week planned for our students at Del Rio! There will be a different theme each day, door decorating contests and other fun activities! So remember to wear your Red proudly and have the courage to say NO to drugs!

 Fun Runs

Welcome to another year of Del Rio School Fun Runs! Wildly successful last year, the Fun Runs are entering its 5th year as a Del Rio  tradition and we   cannot wait to get them started!

These runs are a great way to motivate students, staff and parents to get up and moving toward a healthier lifestyle as they work toward being able to run/walk (three times around the track).   October begins our Fun Runs. They are also scheduled for the following months of December, February and April .               

Teachers  will be out at various recesses encouraging students to run in participation of each of these fun-filled events.

Character counts

everyday at Del Rio!

The Character Trait for October is


 Cougar Character...     

Hello, My name is Ms. Kaci!  What we sometimes see as failure to behave properly, is actually failure to communicate properly.” Salutations! I am the new Behavior Coach at Del Rio Elementary School. My goal is to help translate what students are trying to communicate through behaviors and teach them a   better way to meet their needs. I try to make our Del Rio Students feel cared about and accepted while still maintaining firm expectations and standards of behavior. I believe it is important to celebrate the small victories and good things our students do; as well as, deliver appropriate consequences when mistakes are made.  

Being born and raised in Huntington Beach, California, I consider myself a city girl with a country heart. I have lived in the tri-city area since 2008 and love that I have the opportunity to live in a caring community like Chino Valley. I am a proud member of the Society of Creative Anachronism (SCA), which is a group that “recreates the Middle Ages the way they should have been.” I enjoy Camping, Fishing, and Hiking, basically anything that happens outdoors. I also enjoy music and attended a Performing Arts High School Magnet Program where I focused on Musical Theatre and Modern Dance. When I am not at work you can usually find me attached to my Service Animal named Batman. 

Del Rio Pawsitives and Character Counts – Student of the Month

All month long DRS staff takes notice of positive student behavior on campus from the six pillars of  character to simply good choices. Staff fills out Pawsitive slips and/or nominates a student for the  monthly character counts focus. We reward these students through sharing their great behavior and choices on KDRN, our daily morning announcements, along with an entry into a drawing for a brand new bicycle courtesy of Jeff Champ  Farmers Insurance.

This month’s winner is Kaleb K, a 5th grader. He was nominated by Mr. Rudnick for being a    respectful role model for his classmates and for being so kind. We are so proud of Kaleb and his achievement so far this year. We encourage all students to continue to be a Pawsitives Del Rio Citizen and they too can be entered into our monthly drawing.


Family Link

Del Rio School is excited to roll out  Family Link to our families at Del Rio. Parents will be given a letter at Parent/Teacher conferences with the login information.  Family Link will give you access to see attendance, Del Rio school calendar and each quarters grades.

Character counts everyday at Del Rio!
