Signature Programs

Suzuki Strings Program

Desert Shadows has been offering Suzuki Strings lessons for all of our preschool through 3rd-grade students as part of their regular curriculum. All 4th through 6th-grade students also add lessons to their schedule if they so choose.

Mrs. Laura Syjud is the Suzuki-trained teacher for this program at Desert Shadows Elementary.

Additionally, please feel free to email Mrs. Syjud with any questions.


Hands-on STEAM is a big emphasis at Desert Shadows throughout every school year, with special programs for each grade level. This includes quarterly STEAM projects, STEAM based field trips, STEAM assemblies, STEAM nights, and a school-wide STEAM project. Furthermore, our 6th graders compete in the District Science and Engineering Fair with winners heading to the Arizona State Science and Engineering Fair.
