News from Steve

Dear Copper Mesa Community,

There is only a week remaining until our winter break. I bet Amazon, UPS, and the other delivery companies are busy this time of year!!


Our PRIDE Skill for next week is: Leadership


This week I will mention the following:


  • Choir Concert

  • Look for the Good

  • Watch Dog Dads

  • Field Trips




Our choir concert is this evening. As hard as they have been practicing, I am sure it will be wonderful!! Even if you don’t have a kiddo in choir feel free to come to CME at 6:00 pm this evening. Our choir will also be performing for our school tomorrow at 9:00 am. A huge shout out to Abby Muller for being our choir director!




Yesterday, we concluded our daily messages for the Look for the Good Project. I have loved listening to our Student Leadership Council representatives share positive messages about gratitude each morning. Both of our Gratitude Walls are now filled, but we will keep them up until winter break for those students who would like to add more Post-it notes and for everyone to read.




I have a New Year’s Resolution challenge for all of our dads - sign up at least one day next semester to be a Watch Dog Dad!! It is a great opportunity to help out in your kiddos' classroom, on the playground, in the cafeteria, and be another set of eyes in our school. Check out our CMEA newsletter to sign up!!




Thank you to our awesome CMEA group and our parent community for providing the entrance fees for the various field trips our students have participated in this first semester. We have had students attend plays, visit the aquarium, have fun at a pumpkin patch, and even listen to a drum concert. They have always returned excited about their trip. Look for more field trips this second semester. What a wonderful educational experience for our students!!


Enjoy what looks to be a beautiful weekend!
