Dawn Koberstein proudly joined the dedicated mountain lion pack of Mesquite Elementary in July of 2014.  Proud to lead a school where staff are committed to providing an educational environment where ALL students achieve academic excellence, strong interpersonal skills, self-esteem, and physical growth/development. At Mesquite, we develop the WHOLE child! We offer full-day Building Blocks preschool (3 and 4 yrs old) and the Advantage preschool program.  We offer full-day kindergarten, have a Gifted program and we are a community school. We also host the Performance Academy program for 4th, 5th and 6th grade students. Mesquite Elementary has strong educational and service learning partnerships with Gilbert High School, CGCC/NAU Teacher Prep, First Things First and local businesses. Mesquite is proud to be a FUTP60 (NFL Fuel Up To Play 60) School valuing the need for students to be active to be healthy. Mesquite offers a variety of clubs for students to be involved, i.e.: STEM Club, Oceanography Club, Mesquite Theater, FUTP60 Club, MOVERS Club, NEHS and more! Mesquite prides itself as a safe, “joyful”, supportive, inclusive, best place to work and learn environment, which provides for ALL children an exceptional educational experience! Students tackle new situations with Grit & Grace. Shared decision making of staff, students and parents are focused around Rigor, Relevance and Relationships!  Together we are creating the school environment we all want for our children!
