Sundays From The Mesa # 22

Week of January 23rd - 27th

It's Kindness Week!!!

Dear Alta Mesa Families,

What a great weekend to get outside and enjoy the sunshine! It's been a little while since we've seen this much sun. The newly arriving sunshine is a great prelude to our Kindness Week this week. National Kindness Week is a wonderful opportunity to focus on treating everyone with respect and kindness. We will have various activities and challenges for students and staff to exhibit kindness throughout the week. One of the fun activities will be our dress-up days. See the dress-up days below for a complete list.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and has the opportunity to root for the 49ers against the Cowboys in the NFC Divisional playoffs. GO NINERS!!!!
