Message from the Principal

Welcome back Mustangs! I am so excited and honored to have been selected as your new principal for the 2018 -19 school year. McCartney is a wonderful school to be at and I am looking forward to a positive and successful year.

 Although Mr. Q is beginning a new chapter at Cactus Middle School, as his wife, I am sincerely thankful for this opportunity, but I know with this opportunity comes some big shoes to fill.  It is clear that McCartney has continued to grow as a place of success, warmth, fun, and achievement. I have witnessed the hard work and dedication that the staff, students, and families have poured into the school and I want to assure you that I will do my very best to preserve the greatness and culture of McCartney. 

I am also pleased to welcome the new staff that will be joining the Mustang family. Below you will find our new members.

Taryn Tijerina: TOA

Heather Rice: ELA Coach

Catrina Jensen: 4th grade

Jennifer Whitford: 5th grade

Ania Lind: 5th grade


Additionally, McCartney’s PTO has elected a new president, Kristy Volkmer. Although we are sad to see Mrs. DeCarlo move on to Villago where her own children now attend, we know that Mrs. Volkmer will successfully continue the organization. Should you be interested in being a part of the PTO, please see our school website for meeting dates and ways to become involved. We welcome families and encourage parents/guardians to become active in our school.


Relationships are valued and continue to be a priority. I look forward to getting to know the students and families at McCartney. Should you have any questions, please contact our office at 520-876-4235.
