Welcome to Challenger Elementary School

Principal's Message

Good afternoon Challenger Parents/Guardians and Students,
Classes will resume tomorrow, Friday, December 3 for all Challenger students! We want to sincerely thank our Challenger families for understanding and apologize for the inconvenience. The City of Nogales and the Nogales Unified School District maintenance staff did an amazing job in completing the repair to the water pipe that provides water to the school.  The water at the school has been turned on so that we can resume classes tomorrow.
Thank you and see you tomorrow,
Principal Christina Valdez

Welcome to Challenger Elementary School Home of the Rockets!! We are located just north of the Mexico border in beautiful southern Arizona. Our school was named in honor of the Challenger space shuttle that carried Christa McAuliffe, who would have been the first teacher in space. The country was devastated and heartbroken when the space shuttle blew up within seconds after liftoff.  The space shuttle was the first reusable manned spacecraft.
Here at Challenger, we encourage our students to do everything with PRIDE!
P - Positive attitude 
R - Responsible 
I-  Important individual
D- Dignity
E- Excellence
