Mustang Corral

Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Students,


Thank you for another great week! This past week, we conducted Mustang Way assemblies, one for each grade level. In these assemblies, we informed students how to ensure a great year by emphasizing expectations and the support systems we have at school. We do want our students to thrive in a culture of academic achievement and create a culture of belonging. We can only do that by truly embodying the Mustang way of pride and spirit with dignity and respect.


I want to thank you for making education and well-being a priority. Thank you for supporting us by telling your children to do their best in their classes, to do their work, to do their homework, and to actively participate in class and at school. Thank you for keeping absences to a minimum. Thank you for not sending students to school when they are sick. Thank you for reporting absences in a timely manner. Thank you for completing Independent Study contracts. Thank you for postponing vacations to Intersession. As students have gotten more familiar and comfortable with being fully back to in-person learning, we are now moving towards acceleration while still supporting their social-emotional and academic needs.


One of the routines we want our students to get used to is to come to school on time, all the time. All last week and in the coming weeks, we will be conducting tardy sweeps during the school day. They have been announced so far, but we want to move away from announcing them in the future. We want to create the habit of coming to class on time so instructional time is used effectively. So far, our students have responded well and have moved quickly but safely to their classes when the bell rings. My next BIG ASK is for them to be on time for the first hour of the school day (Period 1 or 4). Thank you for your support.


Please go through the rest of the this bulletin for more important information about Picture Day, Athletics, a picnic for our African American students and their families, lunch applications, and more. The Corral is our way of communicating with our students and families. As I love to say, “Be in the know…’.


It takes all of us to ensure the success of each student. Thank you for being part of the Mustang community.


GO MUSTANGS!


Yours Truly,


Mary Rose Peralta
