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 will take place
via Zoom Monday, October 4, 2020, at 7pm. The public is invited! The Zoom link for the meeting will be
posted at http://www.miramesatowncouncil.org.
All 10 principals in the Mira Mesa Cluster of Mira Mesa High and its feeder schools have been invited,
and most have already confirmed they will participate.
Principals scheduled to attend include:

According to Hickman principal Tobie Pace, the principals will share an updated slide presentation
“about our 10 wonderful schools!” In addition, principals of Good Shepherd Catholic School and Christ the Cornerstone Lutheran School, two longtime private schools in Mira Mesa, are invited to be part of the program.
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. San Diego Unified School District Board Member Sabrina Bazzo will also speak at the Oct. 4 meeting.
