September Edition

What a Fantastic Beginning

Mustang Families,

The 2018 - 2019 school year is in full swing, and we could not have had such a successful beginning without your commitment to your student's success! We have enjoyed seeing each student's smiling face in the mornings as they enter our building, and we appreciate everyone's patience with our car rider line in the morning and afternoons as we get our routines underway. We hope you can feel the same excitement when your child comes home that we can feel while they are at school. In this newsletter you will find school wide information, important dates and a parent reference section for ways you can support your student at home! Please let us know how we can support or assist you and your family.

It is an honor and privilege to serve the Mull Community!
