About Mesa

  • Welcome all parents and students to Mesa Elementary School! Our primary focus is leading your children to learn and grow in the best possible educational environment.  It is our goal that all students achieve at or above grade level by the end of each school year.

    Our entire staff takes great pride in the educational achievement of your children. We have developed and implemented learning benchmarks, which compliment the Colorado State Education standards, in reading, writing, language arts, mathematics and science. We are proud of our wonderful students and their educational accomplishments which are a tribute to their parents, the leadership of teachers, the efforts of support staff members and parent volunteers.

    The staff of Mesa Elementary school consists of classroom teachers in kindergarten through fifth grade, teachers of music, physical education, art, library, English as a second language, speech therapy and special education. There are three custodians, three secretaries, three food service personnel, a counselor and, of course, our Principal and Assistant Principal. 

    Services are also provided via a school psychologist, a part time nurse, and District physical and occupational therapists.  In addition to these employees, we are fortunate to have a number of volunteers from our community who assist with many of our programs through our parent volunteer group, the P.I.T. Crew (Parents Interacting Together.)
