Sundays From The Mesa # 21

Week of January 16th - 20th

Happy MLK Weekend (We Have Monday Off)

Dear Alta Mesa Families,

It's another 4-day week ahead of us here at Alta Mesa as we celebrate Martin Luther King Day. Two 4-day weeks for our students allow everyone to make a nice slow transition back from two weeks off. I encourage parents to take the opportunity to share with their children a little about Dr. King and his impact on our country.

As we return Tuesday we have some fun things happening at Alta Mesa. Our Ski and Snowboard club will be heading up the mountain Tuesday morning, our 4/5 Basketball will begin practices this week, and Booster Club is Tuesday evening. Week 2 of 2023 is off to a great start!

I am looking forward to another great week here at Alta Mesa. Thank you for your continued support.

Ryan Miller - Principal Alta Mesa School.
