Principal's Message


    Natalie Clement

    Mrs. Natalie Clement, Principal


    Welcome to Peralta Trail Elementary School!  

    I am thrilled to be serving again this year as the principal of the Peralta Trail team.  This is my fourth year in Arizona and my eleventh as an elementary school principal.  

    My family and I love this area and our community.  We love the outdoors and enjoy camping, jeeping, and hiking the Superstitions.  My husband is a chiropractor with a local practice, and we have four children ranging in age from 15-22. We live here, work here and play here! 

    As educators, our charge is to equip students with the skills needed to be leaders in our society.  In AJUSD we empower students by providing them with the knowledge, skills, and ingenuity to pursue their dreams and make a positive difference in the world.We are preparing many of them for careers that do not yet exist.  Together parents, teachers, support staff, and community members will challenge our students to think critically, communicate clearly, collaborate effectively, and embrace creativity.  We will accomplish this by providing our students with a caring and inclusive educational experience that fosters academic excellence, social and emotional development and provides a challenging learning environment that will prepare them for a productive and fulfilling future. It is my honor to serve this community by preparing the leaders of tomorrow.
