Greetings Mize Families!

I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving and were able to spend some quality time with family and friends. As the hustle and bustle of the holidays begin, this time of year always seems to go so quickly. Our halls will be busy this week, as we start back to school and begin our winter FastBridge testing.

I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of our wonderful families who donated food for our fourth grade feast. We held our feast on November 26th, where our students and families raised $608.00 for the De Soto food pantry. Your kindness and generosity are greatly appreciated and helped many families. Thank you so much!

Have a great week and take care!

Ms. Balthazor
