Sundays From The Mesa # 8

Week of September 26-30, 2022

Friday is National "Hot Mulled Cider Day"

Alta Mesa Families,

Here we are, at the end of the first month and officially halfway through the first trimester of the year. We have gotten off to a great start this year. Classes are hitting a wonderful groove as students continue to grow daily. I am so very proud of all of our students, staff, and families for their continued commitment to growth.

Fall has officially arrived! The temperatures are dropping and we've had our first taste of rainy weather. Be sure to check your weather app and make sure your children have dressed appropriately for the cooler weather.

We have one more week that we can accept our beginning of the year forms from parents. These forms are incredibly important for things like checking out library books, Chromebook usage, and the educational benefits form impacts district funding. Please make sure to check in with our office if you are unsure if you've completed these.

It's going to be another amazing week here at Alta Mesa School!!! Thank you for your continued support.

Thank you,

Ryan Miller- Principal Alta Mesa School.
