Military Families

Mary A Otondo Elementary School salutes our military families and provides a welcoming, supportive learning environment for military students. We invite families to contact us to schedule a tour or learn more about the great programs available at Mary A Otondo Elementary School.

Student Ambassadors

We understand that some students may feel nervous or anxious about starting a new school. At Mary A Otondo Elementary School, our Student Ambassadors are here to welcome your child and help them with any questions about their school. As military children themselves, they know first-hand what it’s like to move to a new town or school.

Student Ambassadors are qualified to provide a school tour, assist with locating classrooms, explain school culture and routines, and much more.

For more information, please call (928) 502-8500.

Military Family Life Counselors

A military life counselor is based in our school, funded by the Department of Defense. With parent permission, they provide free, confidential individual and group counseling to children and families to address the impacts of military life. They do not keep records of counseling. They also provide education and coaching to teachers and staff. Additional information about the military and family life counselor program is available online.

To contact a military family life counselor, please call (928) 502-8500.

We Purple Up!

Every year, Mary A Otondo Elementary School is proud to “Purple Up” in support of military children.
