Dear Families,

The holidays are upon us and we are learning about how to be empathetic and care for one another at Florida Mesa. Our amazing PTO is collecting items to fill numerous holiday cheer boxes for some of our families and our students are currently engaged in a community food drive. We love that our students are learning to care for their friends and those less fortunate in our community as part of their school experience! Thanks for your participation and support in making these efforts successful for so many in our school and surrounding community.
