Mini Mustang Custodian Helpers (MMCH)
We've got another amazing group of students that see and need and want to step up and help their school! Max, Jacob, and Andrew visited Mrs. Schubert to present their desire to help our custodians, Mr. Aaron and Mr. Norman. They created a slide deck complete with graphics, tables, and solutions on how to assist with the many duties our custodians and teaching staff are doing to fulfill the need we have right now. We are so proud of all the students that are helping right now! Way to go boys!

From Nurse Jan
Emergency Phone Number:
Parents, please add the nurse’s office phone number (623-376-5010) to your contact list. When your child is ill or there is an emergency I need to be able to reach you; it is so important that I have someone answer my phone call.
Also, please make sure your voice mailbox is regularly cleared out. So many times I call parents and/or the emergency contacts, and the voice mailbox is full and I am not able to leave a message.
I am in need of the following clothing items:
· Tee shirts that meet the dress code for 6th. 7th. 8th. Grade girls and boys.
· Underwear, new in package, for boys: Med. And Large.
· Shorts, for boys and girls, easy pull-on with drawstring waistband. Sizes for kindergarten. 1st. 2nd. 3rd.
IMMUNIZATIONS: If your child is turning 11yr.’s in Sept. Oct. or Nov. it is not too early to make their 11yr. old wellness check appointment. This appointment needs to be made on or after they turn 11 yr. not before so that they can receive their required vaccines: Tdap and Meningitis.
Once this appointment is made, if you would be so kind, as to call the nurse's office to give me the date of this appointment it would prevent you from receiving numerous phone calls, emails, and reminder letters from me.
Thank You so much for your help in helping me to give your child the best care possible while they are at school!
The motto this week in school is:
I don't trade what I want most for what I want now.
A student may want to perform in a band or an orchestra. This dream will require commitment, and even though they would rather play video games, they can delay this gratification until after they practice their instrument. “Self-discipline begins with the mastery of your thoughts.” -Napoleon Hill
One way to empower children is to help them think of self-discipline as a superpower rather than a super-bummer.
The habit builder for this week is to help your child focus on what they want most. Here’s how:
1. Create goals with your child. What do they want? Good grades, a spot on the team, a clean room?
2. Schedule time to work on their goals. Ask them to focus on why they want to achieve these goals and how they will feel after working on them, rather than on what they may be missing now.
3. Schedule time for both work and play each day. Life is a balance of planning for the future and living in the moment.
