Principal's Message

Dear Florida Mesa Families,

Happy New Year! We were very excited to return this week with our dedicated Florida Mesa Mustangs. As we ring in the New Year, we want to celebrate our growth. Students are showing tremendous growth in their academic, social, and behavioral goals. Please continue to work closely with your child’s teacher to understand present learning levels and the best ways in which you can support.
