Principal's Message

Ms. Worthington
Dear Desert Star family & community,

Welcome to Desert Star School - home of the Scorpions!  It is with great honor that I join the Desert Star community as the proud principal for the 19-20 school year!  I am excited to be a member of a school community where we strive to build thinkers, problem solvers and communicators to empower our students to shape tomorrow.

With 14 years of leadership experience as a teacher, master teacher, and assistant principal in AESD, I have the depth and understanding of our district mission and vision to grow student achievement, enhance culture and increase communication. 

The Desert Star scorpions have a rich history of providing a culture of academic and cultural success, which is the result of a collaborative partnership between the staff, parents and community. 

I look forward to collaborating with all members of the school community to build strong relationships to move our school culture towards excellence!

I look forward to meeting each one of you and welcome you to contact me at anytime!  Let’s make our time together this year incredible!

Ms. Jessica Worthington
