At San Luis Preschool, our mission is to actively engage children to construct experiences, observe and use their knowledge to discuss and develop learning directions with parents. We are committed to creating a supportive, positive environment where relationships are formed with other children and ensure that all children thrive regardless of their abilities. In keeping with this philosophy, San Luis Preschool understands and adapts to the unique needs of each child to help develop and maintain life-long skills.
The Ambassadors of Excellence program aims to celebrate and honor students who have demonstrated exceptional academic performance, leadership skills, and community involvement. By acknowledging these accomplishments, the program encourages students to continue striving for excellence and inspires others to follow their example.
It is with great pleasure and excitement that I introduce myself, I am the San Luis Preschool Director Imelda Moreno. We welcome all students to San Luis Preschool; a school were the safety and education of our students is our main priority. Our teachers and staff work together to create a welcoming environment where all children feel included and are encouraged to participate in learning activities. Our program provides a special education inclusion setting where teachers ensure that all children thrive regardless of their abilities. When it comes to education, we believe that children learn through play and experiences, and at San Luis Preschool we are committed to create the best experience for our little ones. San Luis Preschool Director Mrs. Moreno
Steps in Donating: 1. What is it? Arizona Law (A.R.S. 43-1089.01) allows taxpayers to receive a tax credit of up to $200 for a single individual or a head of household and $400 for a married couple filing a joint return for donations that benefit students in our public school. That's not just a deduction, it's a tax credit-it reduces what you owe in the state taxes, dollar -for-dollar.
2. Who can benefit from this law? All Arizona tax payers are eligible: you do not have to have children within the school district to benefit from this law. You can now donate through April 15 each year and claim your donation on the previous or current tax year.
3. What qualifies? By law, only donations to extracurricular activities, such as tutoring, athletics, band, orchestra, field trips, special programs and more qualify for the tax credit. Donations must be made to the school district, but directly towards a specific activity at a specific school.
4. How do I donate? To make a donations in person or by mail: simply complete and print the form: Tax Credit Donation Form. You may also contact the District Business Office to obtain the form.
