Good Afternoon Alta Mesa Families,
This is Mr. Miller with your Sunday update. This week provided some welcomed rainfall to what has been a dry spell in the north state. I have a few announcements for this week. First, Monday-Friday we will be having a book return from 11am-12:30pm just past the meal distribution area. We still have around 200 books that are currently out that need to be returned before the end of the school year. Our librarian will send out notifications to families if you still have a book that needs to be returned. I still need families who have not filled out an intent to return form to do so as soon as possible. We need to get a better idea of how many students will be returning in the fall. I will send an email link to families following this message. If you have already filled out this form, you do not need to fill it out again. Finally, this week begins our IReady Langauge Arts assessment. Please connect with your child's teacher to set up a schedule and structure to complete this assessment during the course of the week. We are coming down to the final few weeks of school Alta Mesa continue to be safe, and have a wonderful rest of your weekend.

Good Afternoon Alta Mesa Families,
This is Mr. Miller with Sunday update. I want to first wish all of our Mothers out there a very Happy Mother's Day. I know I personally wouldn't be where I'm at today if it wasn't for my Mom. Thank you for everything you do. The updates for this week are going to be relatively short. Reminder if you are a kindergarten parent that the second round of instructional material pick-up is tomorrow (Monday) from 11:00-12:30 near the meal pick-up area. Be on the lookout for information from your teachers on assessment schedules over the next few weeks. Lastly, our online enrollment is now up, so if you have an new student you would like to enroll please check out our newsletter or website for more information. The weather is beautiful Alta Mesa, I hope you were able to get outside and soak up some of the sun. Have a wonderful rest of your weekend.Sunday, May 3rd, 2020
Good Evening Alta Mesa Families,
This is Mr. Miller with your Sunday Evening Update. I hope this message finds you safe and well. I have a few announcements that I will make on this message, but remind everyone for the most information please refer to the weekly newsletter "Mondays at the Mesa" that will come out tomorrow morning. First, our online enrollment portal is now open. If you have a new student that you would like to enroll you can do so online at eesd.net and choose 'registration' from the top navigation bar, or the link will be on our newsletter as well. If you have one or more students currently attending Alta Mesa please find our "Intent to Return" form on our newsletter and please fill one out for each student you will have returning next school year. This week is teacher appreciation week. If you have the opportunity during the week please let teachers know they are appreciated and loved. I firmly believe we have some of the best teachers around! Lastly, I want to let parents know that we will be doing report cards for the third trimester. It will look different than the report cards for trimester 1 and 2 as we have been in distance learning throughout most of the third trimester. One portion that will be on the report card will be the participation level for students during distance learning. So if you have not connected with your child's teacher and been able to log on to participate, it's not too late. If you have questions on distance learning and alternative options please contact our office. We are in the last full month of school Alta Mesa, let's challenge ourselves to finish strong. Thank you, and have a wonderful rest of your weekend.
