Dr. Chris Hert

Hello Mesa Families,

This is Dr. Chris Hert, the principal of Mesa Elementary School.  On behalf of the Mesa faculty and staff, welcome to the Mustang family!  

I would like to first thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we work through and develop the best plan going forward, post pandemic.  As the impact of the virus continues to change the most fundamental aspects of how we live, including how we hold school, we are working diligently to provide the best schooling possible for our students.  

Here at Mesa, we are committed to inspiring students to be innovative thinkers, compassionate citizens, and responsible learners.  We continue to work towards our instructional focus where students will effectively communicate their reasoning through speaking, writing, and visual representation.  Mesa faculty take pride each and every day as our common aim is to strengthen and empower our students to reach their fullest potential as well as create unique opportunities to flourish and thrive in our ever changing world. 

Mesa is proud to continue to offer a dual language immersion program in Mandarin.  We offer classes from TK-4 for the 2021-2022 school year.  For more information, click here to fill out the interest form.  We’d love for you to be a part of the program! 

Lastly, our hiatus from school left us all empty, however, with this new year we are invigorated to welcome our students each and every day.  We are excited to hear the hallways filled with pitter patter from their footsteps, laughter and giggles while playing tag on the playground, and their genuine smiles because they are where they belong, here at Mesa.  

I invite parents and other family members to play an active role in your child’s journey here at Mesa by partnering with us to work together as a team to meet your child’s unique social, emotional, academic, and creative needs.  

Thank you, in advance, for your continued support of Mesa and your child’s educational journey.
