Principal's Corner

Greetings Dragon Families!


Jo Anne McClelland  We are celebrating!!  The staff is so excited to be back on campus with our students.   It has been a very challenging time in education - especially for our students.   

I am very pleased that Mesquite now has an extensive Medical Careers Lab course that will provide hands-on learning for a variety of medical jobs including x-ray technician, EMT, pharmacist, veterinarian, and others.  

Another addition is a full-time teacher!  We anticipated an increase in enrollment due to the pandemic so we were able to add a teacher.  Even with our increase in students, our student-teacher ratio is still under 20 to 1. 

The Mesquite staff has spent time over the last year recreating our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports program.  We have a new approach to teaching behavior and responding to both good and bad decisions.  This includes a school-wide expectations and rewards systems.  

Please join us at Back to School night on August 25th at 6:30 pm when I will go into greater detail about our new programs.  

This is a celebratory poem that reflects our optimism and excitement for the year...
