A Word from your Instructional Leaders

Happy December to you all!


Whew, we can not believe how fast this first semester has flown by! We have enjoyed learning with your kiddos! Some of the highlights from this first semester include...


  • Enrichment Days (Learning about our Mesilla Community, What it means to be a leader, All about New Mexico and partnering with NMSU STEM Outreach program)
  • Mesilla Cheer Performances
  • Two week Fall Break
  • Leader in Me Assemblies, led by our students
  • Fall Festival
  • First Annual Pumpkin Decorating Contest
  • School Wide Thanksgiving Lunch


It has been a blessing to watch your child/children grow and develop in academics and social/ emotional needs. We look forward to 2023, and wish you a wonderful Holiday season. As always, we appreciate your continued support!


We hope you all are able to join us for some of the upcoming events listed below.
