Welcome to Our School!

Welcome to Indian Oasis, where we empower children with a strong cultural identity and the knowledge to help them conquer every challenge they may encounter during their journey of life. We are pleased to serve elementary students, fourth through sixth grade, from the beautiful Tohono O’odham Nation reservation in Sells, Arizona southwest of Tucson.

At Indian Oasis we are dedicated to serving you, our parents, by teaming with you in the education of your child. We invite you to explore our new website so that you may get to know us better, and contact us with any questions or concerns you may have. We look forward to hearing from you!

A Message from our Principal

Hello Families,

On behalf of the staff at the Indian Oasis-Intermediate Campus, I am very happy to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year.

Parents and guardians, I wanted to let you know how truly inspirational you are for your commitment to your children in creating future leaders for the Tohono O’odham Nation. Partnering with you, I am very excited to begin this new school year that will bring many gifts of knowledge to your children.  

We are asking that parents and guardians assist their child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

  • Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience.
  • Completes all homework assignments from teachers.
  • Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills.
  • Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life.
  • Informs you if he/she needs assistance with their homework.
  • Knows that you expect for him/her to succeed in school.

Please consider opportunities to be a part of our school such as membership on school committees, volunteering, or class visits.

Our mission statement: We empower our children to have a strong cultural identity to conquer challenges in their journey of life. 

Our vision statement: Our children will be college and career ready, embrace their Himdag, and maintain a healthy lifestyle to reach their full potential.

We believe our core values to be:

  • S - That everyone has a right to a safe learning environment.
  • T - In taking pride in our words, actions, and culture.
  • A - Acting responsibly is expected of everyone to ensure a positive learning environment.
  • R - Respect must be woven throughout our daily lives.

Our great staff at Indian Oasis Intermediate Campus and I are deeply honored to be your child’s educators. We look forward to meeting and working with you this school year.
