Principal's Monthly Message

Dear Parents of Mecca Elementary School-

Thank you to all the families that were able to donate gift cards for our staff appreciation event. We had a wonderful luncheon and it was a great opportunity to thank all of our staff for all they do to contribute to the success of our school and community. Your support is always appreciated and we can’t thank you enough!

Our state testing is well underway! Thank you for your continued efforts in making sure your children arrive to school on time and are present every day to promote success with their testing. For your reference, I am including our testing schedule for you one more time.

RSP/SDC

will follow an alternate schedule

*Not all classrooms test every day of the testing period assigned to each grade level.

Don’t forget that Transitional Kinder and Kinder registration have already started. Visit our office between 8:00AM-3:30 PM to get started. In addition, our Parent Center is open Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 4:30-8:00 PM, 8:00-11:30 AM on Wednesdays, and 2:00-5:30 PM on Fridays, and Mr. Jaime can help you start the process. Once you visit him to receive help with an e-mail account and the creation of a Parent Portal account, you can make an appointment with us to complete the registration process. That cuts down registration to about 15 minutes with us. All students who are being registered need to have a current physical test and a dental exam. In addition, you must bring with you a valid ID, student’s birth certificate, and proof of residency (electricity or water bill).

As we near the end of the school year, pay close attention to correspondence being sent home. We have many field trips and other end-of-year events coming up, and it is important you stay abreast all the extra activities taking place at school. I encourage you to place notices being sent home regarding upcoming events on your refrigerator door for easy access and reference. If you do have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and we can help answer any questions you may have.

Join us for our upcoming Mother and Son Dance. Just like our Father and Daughter Dance, we hope this event will also be a huge hit! The theme of the night will be “A Night Under the Big Top.” Dress up and come join the fun on Friday, May 18th from 5:30-7:00 PM in our cafeteria. We will have carnival type of games to engage both the mothers and sons as they spend time together having some carnival fun! (This event is only for our boys and their female guest.)

I thank you in advance for your support and cooperation. I know that by working together we will continue to have a great year! Please feel free to stop by the office if you have any questions or concerns.

Respectfully,

Ms. Gracie Gutierrez

Bighorn Golf Club Grant

Thank you to Mrs. Rivera, our assistant principal, who worked with a volunteer grant writer to obtain $7,500 in funds for our school to purchase playground and PE equipment. Mrs. Rivera attended a dinner event, where she was handed the check from the Bighorn Golf Club Charities. We are thankful of these funds and will continue to seek opportunities to supplement our funds through opportunities such as this one.
