A Message From Our Principal

Hello Mesa Families!

It is hard to believe that we are already into spring and looking down the road at the end of this school year!

During the month of April we celebrate the ‘Month of the Military Child’. We are excited to celebrate all of our military families! Information will be coming home regarding dress-up days and special events happening the week of April 12th. We are excited to celebrate the wealth of experiences held by our military kids and their families.

On Friday, April 2nd, a letter with information on Mesa’s academic, behavioral, and safety data will be sent out to all families. Please be on the lookout for this information (in REMIND) and let us know if you have any questions regarding the information presented.

In a typical year, our 3rd-5th grade students would be participating in state testing throughout the month of April. The state waiver for testing to be reduced for this year has been approved. This means our 3rd-5th grade students will participate in only one content area for testing (instead of reading AND math as well as science in 5th grade). This waiver has also extended the testing deadline through May. This year, our 3rd-5th graders will test in May instead of April. Please watch for more information from Mrs. Warren regarding our testing schedule, dress-up days, and celebrations during testing.

Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your son/daughter’s education this year. If you have questions, concerns or great ideas, please reach out to let us know.
