Sundays From The Mesa # 18

Week of December 12th - 16th

Family Game Night Was Amazing!!!

Alta Mesa Families,

We were able to end last week with Family Game Night which was a blast!!! Families came to our Alta Mesa gym and had a wonderful evening of games, food, and community. We raffled off over 20 board games for families to take home. It was great to see everyone come and enjoy an evening as a big Alta Mesa Family. We will be doing more family involvement nights in the future so stay tuned.

This week will be our last full week of school before break. Next week will be a four-day week with Thursday being a minimum day and Christmas break starting on Friday. We will have our annual Christmas Sing-A-Long on Thursday, December 22nd at 9 am. Parents are invited to attend this year so mark your calendars!

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

Thank you,

Ryan Miller - Principal Alta Mesa School.
