Fall Festival This Friday!

This is one of our favorite events of the year! There will be rides for the kiddos, carnival games run by each grade, a live DJ keeping everyone pumped up, Henna tattoos and delicious food!
Hopefully you have taken advantage of our PRE-SALE prices, if not, wristbands and tickets will be sold at the gate along with Henna Tattoo tickets. Wristbands are ideal for the kiddos, as they will get unlimited rides. Tickets can be used for rides, games and purchases. All the funds we earn go right back to the classroom, as the teachers turn in their tickets at the end of the night and we give them MONEY!
Mirage PTSA will be selling Cotton Candy, Popcorn, Water and Coffee at the event. We’ll also have tons of cool “swag” like smencils and glow bracelets, necklaces and headbands. We’ll also be debuting our brand new t-shirts- $6 for members and $12 for everyone!! Come by and see us!
Volunteers can check in at the first aid station to see where they’re stationed and pick up their awesome volunteer vest!
We can’t do this without you all and we appreciate your support!
See you tomorrow 5-8pm

Teacher Appreciation Dinner

On the longest day, during Parent/Teacher conferences week, we like to provide dinner for our teachers and staff. Something delicious and easy for all! For 2 years in a row, Sauce Pizza and Wine at Norterra has gone above and beyond! A yummy selection of pizzas, salads and pastas is the perfect pick-me-up.

We would like to thank our teachers and our staff at Mirage for all their hard work this week!

And a huge Thank You to Roy Chisnell and http://www.saucepizzaandwine.com/locations/phoenix-shops-norterra/

Mr. Charles

Mr. Charles has been walking the halls of Mirage Elementary for 25 years. On Friday, May 11th, he retired. He means so much to the students, teachers and staff  and will be greatly missed. He worked closely with Mirage PTSA on all of our events and we would not have been as successful without him. Three cheers for Mr. Charles and wish you the best in your next adventure!
