Hello La Mesa Families,

Por favor, desplácese hacia abajo para seleccionar español.

We have less than four weeks to make a difference. Please encourage your child to finish the year strong! There are still many days of learning ahead. We thank all the parents for their ongoing support this year.

Parents, Keep Holding

Thank You Parents

A huge thank you to PAC and all the parents for the wonderful Staff Appreciation Week last week. The food and decorations truly made everyone feel special. We are all grateful for your thoughtfulness and generosity.

Textbook Return

Student textbooks are due back to the library soon. All 8th graders will return their books during their PE period on Tuesday, May 28. 7th graders will return their books during their PE period on Wednesday, May 29.
