Hello Mesa Verde Families,
It is with a very sad heart that I send you this letter to inform you that on March 1st the State of Arizona cut the current year, 2016-17, grant funding for the ACHIEVE Grant. The 20% cut is happening across the state for all schools who are in their first 3 years of the grant. The State awarded grants this past year with funds that were not available. The State was counting on additional funds from the Federal Government but these have been cut as well. It is a devastating cut to many of our Amphi Schools, to schools across the State of Arizona, and for our kids here at Mesa Verde.
All after school activities will ending this Friday, March 24th with the exception of the following.
Morning computer lab continue to be open. Mrs. Hehli and Mrs. Schleicher have so kindly agree to continue to keep it open every morning starting at 7:30 this will end on May 5th.
The following music groups will continue through Friday, May 5th.
The end of the year music concert is on Monday, May 8th.
Student Council will continue, but not every Friday. Mrs. Lopez will send out a detailed meeting schedule for the rest of the year.
Bal-a-vis-x will continue on Wednesdays after school for students already enrolled. This club is full. The new Taekowndo Club is still happening. This is a club that students have to sign up for and pay to participate in. It is on Tuesdays and Thursdays afterschool. There is still space if your child is interested. There are flyers in the office or you can contact Jessica Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
If you have other questions please contact us at 520-696-6090. Thank you.
