BECOME A PFO MEMBER!
Dear Mesa Families,
We'd like to extend an extra big WELCOME to all the new families and staff that are joining us this year. Welcome to a different start of the new school year as we do distance learning from our homes. We hope you all had a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable summer.
Although this is an unprecedented new year, Mesa PFO will continue its mission of supporting you and the students through volunteerism and funding of educational enhancement experiences. We hope to foster a sense of community among our Mesa families as we go through the start of this new school year together. Mesa PFO always looks to build our Mesa community by helping and supporting you, staff, students, and parents. If there is anything we can help you with or questions we may answer, do not hesitate to contact us. We are only an email or message away!
Our first major fundraiser of the year will be our PFO membership drive and our $1 a day for 180 school days campaign. Your tremendous support last year helped support new and exciting things here at Mesa such as field trips, teacher supplies, sports/athletics, and many more. We hope to continue the traditions of our carnival, family nights, and jogathon/Mesa challenge once we are allowed to do so safely. Please consider donating at whatever membership level you are comfortable with- membership donation levels start at $20.
Look out for our Membership Drive Letter and Form that was given when you picked up your school materials.
In the meantime, please follow us on Twitter and Instagram (@mesaunionPFO), like us on Facebook (Mesa Union School Parent Faculty Organization), and check back on our webpage (mesapfo.org) often for the most up to date information and events.
Here's to a great new school year of fun, learning, and building our Mesa Community!
