Sundays From The Mesa # 14

Week of November 7th - 11th

No School Friday, Veterans Day!

Alta Mesa Families,

I hope everyone changed their clocks this Sunday and adjusted to what might be one of our last daylight savings time changes as Congress looks at a national policy to end the practice. Also, this week we are looking at yet another 4-day week with Friday being Veterans day. Please make sure to mark that down on your calendars.

Next week is our parent-teacher conference week. If you have not yet signed up for a conference please connect with your child's teacher this week to do so. This is an important time to see how your child is doing in all areas of school. Our teachers work very hard to prepare for conferences and look forward to continued partnership with our school community of parents.

We will be rounding out our week with two great events. First, we will be holding our trimester 1 award ceremony in the gym. If your child is receiving an award you will get an invite in the mail. Second, on Thursday evening we will be holding our second movie night on the lawn. This one is depending on the weather, right now it looks like it will be clear but cold so bring your blankets! We will be watching Arthur Christmas and giving out hot chocolate. We will begin at 5:30 on Thursday evening.

It's going to be another amazing week here at Alta Mesa, thank you for your continued support.

Thank you,

Ryan Miller- Principal Alta Mesa School.

Alta Mesa Movie Night - Arthur Christmas
