Sundays From The Mesa # 13

Week of November 1st - November 4th

No School Monday, Happy Halloween!!!

Alta Mesa Families,

Red Ribbon week was amazing. We had a full week of door decorating, pies to the principal's face, dress-up days, and the Fall Carnival. This all led up to Halloween weekend. Halloween is Monday and it is a non-student day. Students will be back on Tuesday, and we have made that a pajama day at school for students who will be recovering from "trick or treating."

This week won't have much happening at school. We are now officially in the second trimester of the school year. Teachers are going to begin reaching out to parents and scheduling conferences for 1st trimester. This is an incredibly important time to meet and discuss your child's progress in school.

The next two weeks will be four-day weeks for students. Please make sure to mark your calendars.

Thank you,

Ryan Miller- Principal Alta Mesa School.

Staff Development Day Monday, 10/31 - No School for Students
