A WORD FROM MRS. KOPERNO
We hope that the new year has started off well for all of you. We are busy with learning and activities every day here at Mesa Arts Academy.
Our focus remains to cultivate a positive climate and create the best learning environment possible. High quality instruction and student learning are our highest priorities. Everything that we do at Mesa Arts Academy is designed to help students learn in all areas and be successful well beyond their time here. Once again, that partnership between school and home is a key ingredient for student success. With that said, we hope that your students are feeling safe and supported. This is an interesting time in their lives and development, and can be challenging at times. If you have questions and or concerns, we want to hear from you.
It is hard to believe that we have passed the half-way point of the year. Students are settled into routines and understand our school-wide expectations. Teachers have worked hard to create meaningful learning opportunities and teach schoolwide behavior expectations. Consistency and predictability are key factors for student success, as well as a calm learning environment to better focus on learning.
A reminder about attendance: School begins at 7:30 am every day. When your child is late, they miss valuable time with their classmates and teacher. Many teachers use this time for team and community building. After 7:45 am, parents are required to sign their child in at the front office.
We’re fortunate to work with your students every day. Thank you for allowing us to play a role in their development.
