Mustang News - April 15th, 2022

From The Principal...

We were so impressed with our students this week as they completed the PSAT and SAT. We recognize that testing can be stressful for students, but they worked through the testing process in such an impressive manner.

We will have our second round of testing on Tuesday, April 19th to include the ACT WorkKeys for 10th graders and the CMAS Science for 11th graders. Freshmen and seniors will not have school on this date.

Next week will also include a Mustang Safe & Strong Day as we lead up to Prom on Friday, April 22nd. We love to see our Mustangs having fun, while remaining safe and making good decisions!

From The Music Department...

These young men had the opportunity to represent Manitou Springs High School at the All State Honor Band this past weekend. The level of musicianship at this event is top notch as each band is filled with the best of the best students from all across Colorado. To have any student participate is an honor for them and for their director.

The Prospector took a stab at "breaking news" this week. These articles required fast fact finding, interviewing, and writing. Kudos to Junior Emily Waite and Senior Claire Kisielnicki for getting the job done!
