Sundays From The Mesa # 19

Week of December 19th - 22nd

Have a Happy Holiday Break!!!

Dear Alta Mesa Families,

Well, we have arrived at not only the Holiday Break but the halfway mark of the 22-23 school year. This will be a fun and shorter week for Alta Mesa. We have two minimum days this week on both Monday and Thursday so parents please be aware of pickup times on those days.

This week we will be headlined by the many Holiday activities teachers will be doing in their classes as well as the Holiday Sing-A-Long on Thursday. We are excited to invite parents to come to the Sing-A-Long this year. Parents can enter through the gym. The Sing-A-Long will start promptly at 9 am and go to 10 am. Parents if you plan on taking your child after the Sing-A-Long please make sure to sign out with their teacher. Bring your singing voices, it's going to be a lot of fun.

It's going to be a great last week before break. On behalf of the entire Alta Mesa Family, I want to wish everyone a Happy Holidays!!! See you in 2023!!!

Thank you,

Ryan Miller - Principal Alta Mesa School.
