Welcome to Arroyos del Norte

Dear Families,

It is with great pleasure that I write this as your incoming principal for Arroyos Del Norte Elementary School for the 2019-2020 school year. It is an honor to become part of the ADNE family and community. ADNE is a beautiful public school located between the rural communities of Arroyo Seco and Arroyo Hondo, with bus service to and from Taos Public Library and KTAO. We have a dedicated staff that works hard at ensuring that the learning and emotional needs of every child are met in their academic career. We pride ourselves on the rich community atmosphere we have developed - where parents and families are always welcome to visit and participate in their child’s learning. Our parent committee has helped teachers to host family art and academic activities, and we are working together to continually enhance and beautify our grounds.

We are very excited to announce that ADNE will continue working with community partners to continue our STEAM focused school in which students will have the opportunity to participate in Project Based Learning activities throughout the year. We will continue to analyze student data to develop a program that fits the needs of all children in our community. All ADNE students will receive one hour of Bilingual Education daily which will enhance their learning. Students will continue to have the opportunities of participating in Ski Club, Basketball, a Visiting Artist Program, and various cultural and academic activities designed by our staff.

The first day of school is Thursday, August 15th 8:30-3:30. We will have half-day Fridays beginning August 23rd.

New student registration is Monday - Friday from 8:30-3:30.


Mrs. Deborah E. Branchal
