December at Mesa!!!!

Happy Holidays!!!!

Thank you!!!!

Mesa Families,

We are so fortunate here at Mesa. What a first semester is has been! However, one thing has remained constant and that is the support of our parents/guardians and community members. This has made the year as positive as it could be given the circumstances and for that, WE THANK ALL OF YOU!!!

On behalf of our entire Mesa staff, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a Wonderful Holiday Season and a very Happy New Year! I am excited for the New Year and all of the possibilities that 2022 will bring our school community and the world.

We hope that you find yourself looking forward to the holidays where you will hopefully find time for family and friends.

This is the time of year for giving and at Mesa Middle School we had a tremendous number of students/teachers involved in giving back to the local community. It is so exciting to see such a caring and dedicated student and teacher population at Mesa.

Happy Holidays!!!

This was Ms. Fosbender's “Holiday Book and Treat Exchange” where students could sign up to come in during lunch and bring a book and some holiday treats to share. Students were able to exchange their book with someone else’s book in order to have something new to read over winter break! Building connections with each other and sharing their passion of reading with their peers!
