State funds only partially meet the financial needs of our school. Mesa PFO was established to help raise additional funds to finance expenses not covered by state funding. Fieldtrips, specialized classroom supplies, extra-curricular activities, and many other costs that enhance the learning experience are financially supported through fundraising efforts and generous donations from our community. 2017 MESA PFO FALL CARNIVAL IS FINALY HERE! - Friday October 20th, 4-9pm

Mesa PFO has provided an initial free Mesa spirit shirt to each student.  Students should wear on Fridays, field trips, school competitions, etc.  We understand that the shirts may be a little larger than the size your current student wears, but we hope to help you get a few good years out of it.  This will be the common spirit shirt for everyone for the next few years.  As your student grows, you will have the opportunity to purchase larger sizes if needed (purchase one for yourself too).  We also hope to have a family t-shirt exchange program where families can swap out gently used shirts among each other.  We've seen some creative ways kids make an oversized shirt work. Don't forget to sponsor a t-shirt on the PFO Membership form or provide a general donation at the bottom of this page to keep this t-shirt program going!
