Thankful for YOU!
As we embark on another week of learning, growth, and community spirit, I am compelled to express my deepest gratitude for the incredible tapestry of individuals that make up our Mirage family. In the spirit of our morning meeting focus on gratitude, I find myself reflecting on the glorious gifts that surround us each day.
The upcoming week promises to be a celebration of thankfulness, and I am thrilled to extend an invitation to our Turkey Feast in the cafeteria on the 16th. It will be a time for our students and their families to come together, share a meal, and experience the warmth of community. This event serves as a symbolic reminder of the abundance of gratitude that fills our school.
Simultaneously, our Fall Festival on the evening of the 16th, from 5 PM to 8 PM, is an occasion for joy and camaraderie. It is an opportunity for families to gather, celebrate the season, and revel in the richness of our diverse community. Let us come together and create lasting memories as we enjoy the festivities, games, and shared laughter.
In the spirit of the season, I want to take a moment to express my heartfelt appreciation for the pillars of our school – our incredible staff, dedicated students, supportive families, and the broader community members. Mirage Elementary is truly a haven of learning and growth, and it wouldn't be possible without the unwavering commitment and collaborative spirit that each of you brings to our community.
Just as a garden flourishes with a variety of blooms, our school flourishes with the diversity and unique qualities each of you contributes. Your involvement, dedication, and support form the bedrock of Mirage Elementary, and for that, we are profoundly grateful.
As we approach this week of gratitude, let us remember that thankfulness is not just a moment but a way of life. It is woven into the fabric of our interactions, the warmth of our smiles, and the shared experiences that shape us. Together, let's embrace the spirit of gratitude and make our school an even more vibrant and nurturing place.
Wishing you and your loved ones a season filled with joy, gratitude, and unending love!

We are in the middle of the second quarter, and grades are accumulating. Have you wondered about the grading practices in DVUSD? Ensuring fair and credible evaluation of student learning from classroom to classroom and school to school will directly impact and improve student learning. Students should be held accountable for their learning. We also recognize that grading practices can contribute to long-term student success. An emphasis on the evaluation of content standards and timely, constructive feedback are cornerstones to grading that reflect student growth and development.
