Special Population's Night

As we transition into October, I wanted to take a moment to update you on an upcoming event at our school.

Mark your calendars for Mesa Elementary's Special Populations Night, on Wednesday, October 18th from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM. This event is an opportunity for you to learn about the resources and strategies available to support your child at Mesa. We will have resources/information on special education, our MTSS intervention process, English language learners, gifted and talented learners, as well as social-emotional support for students. It's a night you won't want to miss!

In addition at Special Populations Night, we would like to extend an invitation for our families to join us in meeting with various community resources that offer services to our community. We believe in the power of partnerships and know that by working together, we can provide even more support to our students and families, and representatives from Outside Military Community Resources will also be present at this event.

Light refreshments will be served throughout the event, providing an opportunity for all of us to come together and connect as a community.

Thank you again for your continued support. We value your partnership and look forward to seeing you at Mesa Elementary's Special Populations Night on Wednesday, October 18th from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
