Santa Fe Public Schools has begun the process of adopting instructional materials in the content area of social studies for the 2023-2024 school year. Committees are being formed with representatives from stakeholders throughout the City of Santa Fe. SFPS teachers, administrators, parents and community members will meet regularly to review social studies materials and make recommendations for adoption. The materials will be purchased as part of the State’s six-year adoption cycle established by the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED). Of paramount interest to SFPS is the well-being of our students. We are excited to have the opportunity to provide our students and teachers with materials that align with the New Mexico Social Studies Standards. Should you have questions regarding instructional materials, please contact the District Instructional Materials Coordinator, Ms. Erica Wheeler, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our flying ship turns to the southeast and heads towards Atalaya Mountain/Trail. Atalaya is Spanish for “watchtower” and for anyone who has climbed this peak knows, it lives up to its name! Tucked in the hills near the trails is Atalaya Elementary School. This institution prides itself on being immersed in its local community and its active PTA. For instance, Atalaya has forged strong partnerships with neighboring schools Santa Fe Prep and St. John’s College, which supports students through tutoring, chess and mentorships! The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is heavily involved in sponsoring yearly events such as: The annual Turkey Trot (5K Run) on Thanksgiving Day The Back-to-School Barbecue The Fall Festival Spring and Fall Book Fairs The classroom experience includes various grade-level traditions that educate the whole child offering a balanced curriculum of math, language arts, inquiry science and social studies. They also integrated advanced programs such as DoD STARBASE, Yo Soy, National Dance Institute, Talking Hands, Talking Feet and other theatrical/movement practices!
