Mustang News - January 6th, 2023

From The Principal...

Welcome back Mustangs! I have loved reconnecting with students, staff, and community members this week, and welcoming Jessie Nunley as she returns to her role as Interim Assistant Principal! There is so much energy on campus and we are looking forward to capitalizing on our momentum. The laughter, stories about break, and ambitious goals as we start the new year are so exciting–I cannot wait to continue to grow together!

Parents/Guardians: please consider joining our School Accountability Committee (SAC) Meeting on Monday, January 9th from 5:30-6:30 pm in the Media Center (please note this is a date change, as it was originally scheduled for January 10th). We appreciate the opportunity to partner with families regarding feedback on performance, initiatives, budget, etc. If you plan to attend and/or have any questions, please reach out to me:

I hope you all enjoy your weekend!
