Dear Families,

Please join us for Music at the Mall Saturday, Nov 4 in front of Dillards! All schools will take turns singing and middle school bands will perform. Ms. Teti will lead both Desert Willow and Mesquite in song beginning at 9:30 until approximately 9:50. Students are encouraged to wear black and white and blue jeans are fine. We will begin to line up for the stage at 9:10. Schools will perform 9:00— noon. Stay for as many performances as you like.

Veterans and families are invited to our Kindergarten, Second Grade, and Fourth Grade Heart of America music program honoring our veterans on Monday, Nov. 13 at 1:45. We are so thankful for these brave people that serve/ have served our country. Students performing are encouraged to wear red, white, and blue.

Reservations for our Friday, Nov 17 Holiday Meal will be taken to ensure enough food is made. Cost of an adult lunch is $3.50, and exact change is always appreciated. Please watch for a Holiday Meal note coming home soon!

Our current 7 Mindsets focus to live a happy and successful life is Passion First. Focusing on our strengths, exploring interests, and knowing our core values help put our passions to great use. On Nov 2 children’s book illustrator, Juana Martinez-Neal visited to share her passion for art and how it has led to happiness and success in her life. She shared her latest books and her illustration process as she visited with each grade level throughout the day. American Education Week will be celebrated Nov 13-17. Please consider writing your child’s teacher(s) a note to show your appreciation for all of their efforts to support your child’s learning.

As the holiday season begins, we thank you for your partnership and continued support in helping the children learn their academics and become caring citizens. By working together we are creating great success!

Happy Thanksgiving,
Ms. Holdsworth
