Sundays From The Mesa # 16

Week of November 28th - December 2nd

It's the Holiday Season

Alta Mesa Families,

Welcome back from Thanksgiving Break. I hope everyone had a wonderful, thankful, and family-filled break. This is such a great time of year to take a moment and count the blessings in our lives. We now return for what is always a quick 4 weeks of school before our Holiday Break in December. We like to pack as much as we can during this time so buckle up!

As we return from break and go through the next four weeks please make sure to check the weather and have your children dress appropriately for colder days. Also, when the weather turns cold our "lost and found" triples in size as students leave their sweaters and jackets at school. Make sure to check with your child if they are missing something when they arrive home. We donate all items in the lost and found over the Holiday Break.

We have a lot packed in over the next few weeks. Please make sure to check through the newsletter for all upcoming events. It's gonna be a great week at Alta Mesa!

Thank you,

Ryan Miller - Principal Alta Mesa School.

Security Office Door

We recently added an extra security measure to our school. Our front office will now be locked at all times. Parents and visitors will ring the doorbell, our staff will come over the intercom and confirm who is requesting access, then unlock the door electronically. Thank you for your patience during this transition time. This is yet another extra measure to ensure the safety of our students and staff.

Ninja Coalition

Alta Mesa will be hosting the Ninja Coalition this week. This is for 1st-5th graders. Two waivers went home with your students before Thanksgiving break. Both waivers need to be filled out and returned to your student's teacher in order to participate, NO EXCEPTIONS. There are additional waivers in the main office if needed. Lastly, students must have closed-toed shoes while participating.

Alta Mesa Family Game Night - Dec 9th
