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 (MMP) and Capps Middle School. Thank you for your support!

We are looking forward to a normal start to the school year this year. School will officially begin on Wednesday, August 3.

We will be hosting meet the teacher night at both campuses on the evening of Tuesday, August 2. 

  • 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. We hired Jeff Quinn as a 5th-grade teacher. Jeff has 15 years of teaching experience and is an author of over 24 books written. Brandie Means is our new Capps special education teacher and is starting her 14th year in teaching. We hired Sharon Baker as the new MMP special education teacher and she is formally from our area and raised her family here many years ago. Welcome back, Sharon! We also welcome Holly Pearce to MMP as a first-grade teacher. Mrs. Pearce is a recent graduate with many new ideas. 

Finally, I want to say thank you to all our families for the never-ending support you give us. You make such a difference in our ability to succeed. Thank you for your support, and have a great school year!

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