The Mustang Messenger
May 19th, 2023
Greetings Mustang Families!
I hope this message finds you doing well. Thank you to all of the parents who donated food and water for our track meet. It was a great event for our community.
We are not counting the days until school is out, we are "making the days count." The quarter will end soon and it is important that students finish strong. Please have your students check their grades and ensure all assessments and assignments are complete so their grades are a true reflection of their achievement.
Catherine Nicholas, Ed.D.
