The Mira Mesa Town Council is continuing its tradition of hosting a “Schools Night” featuring principals of K-12 schools in Mira Mesa as the main program at its October meeting. The meeting is scheduled to take place Monday, October 3, 2022, at 7pm, at the Mira Mesa Branch Library community meeting room, 8405 New Salem St., San Diego CA 92126. The public is invited!

All 10 principals in the Mira Mesa Cluster of Mira Mesa High and its feeder schools are being invited, and many of the principals who have served at their schools previously make participating an annual tradition on their calendars. MMTC presented the Mira Mesa Schools Night in 2020 and 2021 via Zoom.

Ladonna Lambert, Good Shepherd Catholic School, and Tammy Peters, Christ the Cornerstone Lutheran School, principals of two longtime private schools in Mira Mesa, have also being invited to speak.

Each of the principals will speak for about 3-4 minutes, sharing “something special” about themselves, their schools, students and parents, as well as any upcoming special programs this school year.
