Important Update about Specials Lessons

Starting on Monday, September 28th, students will start to see their pre-recorded (asynchronous) lessons at 2pm from the same Special area teacher they see for the live lesson in the morning. For example, if my class sees Art in the morning on Monday, I will look in Seesaw at 2pm for the pre-recorded video and/or activity.

Asynchronous items will be available by 2pm or sooner on the day students see their daily special.

We will continue to have asynchronous lessons from LMC on Fridays.

In addition, we wanted to clarify that the second set of asynchronous activities for PE from Mr. Carter are optional as they are a family/community activity.

Mustang Mindset: Community

This past week we started discussing the topic of Kindness and how we can show kindness through being friendly, generous, and considerate. We will continue to discuss this mindset and dig deeper into other topics that align with Kindness.

Mustang Kindness BINGO

We are kicking off the month of October with our Mustang Kindness BINGO. Students received a goldenrod BINGO paper copy in their supply bag or can use the digital copy available on Seesaw. This is a challenge to work on showing kindness is different ways. See the below image for more information.
