Mesilla Elementary Newsletter: August 2022

A Word from your Instructional Leaders

Welcome Back to School!

Welcome to Mesilla to all of our new families!

We are so excited about the 22-23 school year! Our teachers and staff have worked extremely hard over our short summer to prepare for students. You can expect to receive this monthly newsletter at the beginning of every month. We will also produce a monthly calendar with school events. This calendar has advertising space available for $25 a month. All proceeds will go to our Mesilla PTO. Please reach out to Lisa Manes lmanes@lcps.net for more info. Another way we work to communicate with our Mesilla community is our school webpage. Please bookmark mesilla.lcps.net to find staff email info, bell and lunch schedules, as well all upcoming events.

Thank you to all who were able to join us for our Back-to-School Zoom with Mesilla Admin. The powerpoint can be found attached below for any who may have missed it. We also appreciate all who were able to attend our Meet the Teacher Event as well as our Kinder Transition assembly. We will have our Open House on August 4th from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Please mark your calendars for this special upcoming event.

We look forward to building positive relationships with you and your family. Please know we are always available through a phone call or email. We would like to invite you to never hesitate if you have a question or concern.

Thank you again for your continued support and for trusting us with your most prized possession, your children.
