Sundays From The Mesa # 10

Week of October 10th-14th, 2022

What A Week We Had Last Week!!

Alta Mesa Families,

Last week was a lot of fun. We had so much packed into the week it was hard to keep up. The biggest event was hosting our K-5 Cross Country meet on Thursday. We had a big crowd of parents and onlookers as well as staff helping out. It was such a positive event and great to see the outpouring of support for our runners! I want to especially thank all of our staff members that volunteered to help. They were course guides, rabbits, turtles, and finish-line managers.

This week we have even more great things planned. We will be closing out our cross-country season at Mistletoe. Our 4/5 Co-ed Soccer permission slips go out as well as other after-school activities. We will also be hosting our first "Movies at the Mesa" on Friday where we will have an inflatable screen watching Hotel Transylvania outside on the grass near the gym. Plenty of great opportunities for students and families coming up this week.

I look forward to another great week here at Alta Mesa, thank you for your continued support.

Thank you,

Ryan Miller- Principal Alta Mesa School.

Movie at The Mesa, Oct 14th!
