Principal's Corner


Dear Parents and Community Members,

Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year at Mesquite Elementary!  We are excited to begin a new school year with some success to report.  Our focus last year was to improve student achievement outcomes by focusing on fidelity to the core curriculum, fidelity to the dual language program, and increasing rigor and expectations.  With a change in our focus, we were able to improve our NMPED grade from "F" to "D."  We had 13.5 points of growth on the state report card, the 5th highest growth in the district!  We are not satisfied with this grade and our focus this year will be to use individual student data to differentiate instruction and ensure that every student reaches his/her maximum learning potential.  We also need your support.  Please make sure that your child is at school regularly and has a regular routine for doing homework.  Proper rest is also important for student success.  We are also always in need of volunteers in our school.  Please feel free to come in at any time and ask how you can help.

We look forward to working with you and your child this year.


Brenda E. Ballard, Principal
