Mustang News - April 1st, 2022

From The Principal...

We were happy to welcome students and staff back from Spring Break this week. It's been a rainy week, but without rain nothing grows! We look forward to the growth that will take place during the last quarter of the school year. The high school will hold a second Parent/Community Forum on Tuesday, April 5th to engage with community members. Springtime is always a busy time within the school to include the spring sports seasons, graduation preparation, and several activities and events. Be sure to follow our weekly newsletters for up to date information on spring happenings. Please enjoy the photo below taken by our District Registrar - Christina Baker. Have a wonderful weekend!
