Principal's Message

Mrs. Sautner, Principal

Mrs. Ginny Sautner


Welcome Starline Families to the 2022-2023 school year! It’s going to be a great one.  


Ms. Triassi, our principal for the last five years has chosen to retire; we are sending her off with a trip to a wellness resort and the hope that she will return to volunteer with students on campus whenever she is ready. 

I am excited to introduce myself to you as your new Starline Elementary principal.  My name is Ginny Sautner; I’m a former Starline student and have worked in our Lake Havasu Unified School District for the last 18 years. I am a Nationally Board Certified Teacher, an Arizona Master Teacher Mentor, a past Fulbright Exchange teacher, and a former National Rural Teacher of the Year.  I’ve called Lake Havasu home for most of my life and love and value this community where my husband (Sgt. Sautner) and I choose to raise our two daughters. 

I have a deep respect and admiration for our teachers, staff, families, and children.  Here, we are a team. We are a family. It is truly the high point of my professional career to work with dedicated educators like this Starline staff.  I firmly believe that every staff member impacts students no matter what title they hold–we are all advocates for students here.  Creating a culture of excellence is an ideal I will strive for each day through word and action to uphold the vision of what Starline Elementary School has been and will continue to be for students, families, and our community. It is my distinct honor and pleasure to serve on this team as your principal for the next school year.

As you know, Starline has a great legacy of involved families. If you are interested in volunteering, please come into the Starline office and speak to Billie VandenHeuvel, the Administrative Assistant, or Tracy Dixon, the Office Assistant for a volunteer sign-up packet.


At any time, if you have any questions, please reach out via email or call the main office at (928) 505-1490.


Go Starblazers!

Ms. Ginny Sautner, NBCT
