President's Monthly Message

January 2018


Dear Mesa Families,


Happy New Year!


We hope everyone enjoyed some fun and relaxing time with family and friends over winter break. We want to extend a very big THANK YOU to all of you who donated to our “Mesa Cares” campaign. With your generous donations, along with MEF and the District, we were able to provide about 40 families with food for holiday meals, coats, clothing, toys, and gift cards to help them enjoy the holidays.


A big congratulations goes out to our 7/8 Girls Volleyball Team. Despite school closures, limited practice time, and rescheduled games, they made it to the championships days before winter break. They pulled off a victory in 2 sets over Monte Vista and earned 1st place for the Camarillo League!

Basketball season is now upon us. Teams in the Oxnard League will begin playing this week, with many games happening on Saturday. Please come out to support our Mesa tigers!


As a reminder, PFO pays for all league and referee  fees for all our sports teams. This year we were able to purchase new uniforms for both the volleyball and football teams. We are looking to do the same for basketball and soccer. However, we cannot do this without your support. If your students(s) participate in sports, please greatly consider donating $30 per athlete, per sport, to help sustain our athletic program.


We have decided to cancel January’s PFO meeting. However, Noah’s bagels & coffee with Mr. Turner & Dr. Bluestein is still scheduled for Tuesday (1/9) morning. Please come join us! Elementary award assembly is Friday (1/12). As always PFO will be there with hospitality - offering free coffee and Krispy Kreme donuts! Spiritwear will also be out for sale. Come check out this year’s new spiritwear designs and styles!


This year, with a new restaurant night chair taking the lead, our monthly restaurant nights have been extremely successful! January’s night is scheduled for the last TUESDAY, Jan. 30 at the Chipotle in Camarillo only. Dine in or carry-out from 4PM-8PM. Chipotle will donate a generous 50% of every sale back to PFO.


Finally, we have a new PFO website! We’ve been slowly putting this new website together over the holidays and it continues to be a work in progress. We appreciate your patience as we get it up and running. Check it out -


As always, we welcome your feedback so please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.


Here's to a great rest of the school year of fun, learning, and building our Mesa Community!
