News from Steve

Dear Copper Mesa Community,

The last school day of the 2023 school year!! It is hard to believe that we are already half way through this school year! It’s been a wonderful first semester and I am sure the second half will be equally as awesome!


Our PRIDE Skill after break is: Dependable


This week I will mention the following:


  • Band/Orchestra Concert

  • SLC Spirit Day

  • Art Work




Tuesday evening I had the distinct privilege of listening to our band and orchestra students perform several songs. They sounded great, and have improved a ton since the beginning of the school year. Thank you to all of our band and orchestra parents for encouraging your children to play an instrument. I hope they continue playing into middle school and beyond!




Our Student Leadership Council designated Tuesday as a Winter Wonderland Spirit Day. Each class determined how they would dress up. Some classes were wearing winter and holiday hats, holiday sweaters and jammies were also popular. Our office staff and admin dressed in our winter PJs as we love wearing our PJs to school any chance we get!! We also had a door decorating contest. Check out a few photos of various classroom doors.




You’ve got to check out the 3D Relief Masks that our sixth graders made. They are on display near our art room. They are absolutely amazing!!! Wow, we have talented sixth graders here at CME! Thank you to Mrs. Tauro for leading them through this amazing art work!


And now we are off to spend the holidays with our loved ones! I hope you have the happiest of holidays, a very Merry Christmas and safe travels if you are heading out from Highlands Ranch. If you are staying put, cozy up by the fire as a family, enjoy some cheesy Hallmark Holiday movies and enjoy the extra time loving on your kids!!


Happy New Year - see you all in 2024!!
