NEW! Back To School Night - 9/1
Virtual Back to School Night is this coming Wednesday, September 1st. There will be a Principal’s Welcome & PTSA Meeting from 5:15-5:55pm and class meetings will run from 6:00-7:40pm. Click on the picture to the right to view the schedule for the night.
The Zoom link for the Principal's Welcome & PTSA Meeting will be sent through our email messaging system, Blackboard Connect, on Wednesday afternoon so it will be at the top of your inbox. We will also post the link in the announcements section of our website, linked here.
A Back To School Night Schedule (colored paper) will be given to your student next week. Be sure your student fills it out and gives it to you so you know their class schedule. Be on the lookout for communication from your child's teachers about how to access their Zoom link.

The Mesa Verde library is looking for volunteers to help in the library during the lunch periods (Mon/Tues/Thur/Fri 11:00 to 12:40 and Wednesdays 11:40 to 1:00) once we are permitted to have volunteers again. We need help assisting and supervising students during our busy lunch periods. Volunteers may choose which day of the week and how often you would like to come in (once a week, every other week, once a month, etc.) If you are interested please contact Heather Ryan: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will collect this information now to have it in preparation for when volunteers are allowed.
