Sundays From The Mesa # 17

Week of December 5th - 9th

It's the Holiday Season

Alta Mesa Families,

It was a cold one the past few days. To quote the song, "oh the weather outside is frightful." We still have students attend school in clothes that are not warm enough for winter weather. While we do indoor recess for rainy weather, we don't for the cold. I encourage all our parents to check their children before they leave the house so they are adequately prepared for the weather.

Last week we enjoyed the Ninja Coalition and its program in our gym. Our 1st-5th graders had an amazing time and we'd like to thank all the Ninja staff and directors who made this opportunity possible. Please check out our youtube page for highlights on this week's morning message.

Please make sure to mark your calendar with Friday's Family Game Night in our gym. This is a great chance for families to come out and enjoy each other's company and play some games. If the weather permits, we will try to show a holiday movie on our outdoor movie screen as well. There will be a free pizza dinner included and at the end of the evening we will be passing out some of the games.

It's going to be another amazing week at Alta Mesa!

Thank you,

Ryan Miller - Principal Alta Mesa School.
