The S.A.F.E. program at our school is designed to provide engaging and safe activities for students before and after school!
To keep our parents informed,we keep a board right inside the cafeteria door with our daily schedule so you where we are, and what we are doing. Our monthly newsletters are located at the bottom of this page.

Congrats to our CDN SAFE chess team!
Big shout out to all of our chess club who worked hard this year learning new strategies and techniques in the game of Chess. We took 10 students to a mulit-school tournament, on April 13th and our team placed 2nd overall!
In addition to that, we had two of our players tie for first place, and one tie for second. Most importantly, our students represented our school wonderfully with Soaring Hawk behavior and sportsmanship. Check out the slide show posted below!
Santa Fe Opera Performance
Mark your calendars to attend our very own student written and produced opera at Rio Rancho Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, May 11th at 6:00 pm.
Students who are performing in the opera will be bussed over during the afternoon, where we will have an opportunity to practice once on the stage, do our make-up and costumes, and eat pizza!
Important information
In the morning, our program starts at 6:45 and we meet in the cafeteria. If you arrive before 7:00 am, parking is permitted in parking lot by field. If after 7:00, you must park in the front and walk student to the cafeteria. This is for the safety of the bus students, and not blocking or getting locked in the gate!

Pick up is also in the cafeteria, with our program ending promptly at 6:00. pm. We will keep a schedule on a dry erase board by the back cafeteria door so parents will know where we are on campus. If there is a schoolwide event on campus where the cafeteria and gym are in use, pick up will be in our portable, #13-14.
If your student is not attending SAFE for the day, but we are expecting them, please send an
