A Message from our Principal

Dear Parents,

I hope you are having a wonderful summer. It is my pleasure to be a part of two schools known for their academic excellence at a state level and all the way down to our local level. I am delighted to be your principal at Mountain Meadows Primary School and Capps Middle School. Thank you for your support!

We are looking forward to a normal start to the school year this year. The school will officially begin on Wednesday, August 4.

We will host meet the teacher night at both campuses on the evening of Tuesday, August 3.

  • Mountain Meadows at 5:00 p.m. (Please meet in the cafeteria.)
  • Capps at 6:00 p.m. (Please meet in the PAC.)

Capps and MMP will start school at 8:00 a.m. and end at 3:00 p.m. Please do not drop your child off before 7:30 a.m.

I would ask that you please do not park in the student drop-off zones at either campus and leave your vehicles. I will have signs at both schools in regards to these zones in hopes to promote a safe area for our students to load and unload.

We have a few new staff members at both campuses. Glory Polley is now a fifth-grade teacher. She served as an aide for us last year. Capps school has a new secretary, Shirley Heeringa. Mrs. Heeringa comes to us with many years of experience. Stop in and say hi to Mrs. Heeringa. We also welcome a new school nurse, Marsha Nine. At Capps, we welcome Joy Koke and Joleene Booeher as instructional aides. At Mountain Primary we welcome Adeline Jones, Briana Ojeda, and Susan Thorson as instructional aides.

Your students should bring a student handbook home the first week of school. We urge all of you to read through the handbook with your child.

If you should have any questions, please call us at (928) 535-4622.
