Week of February 8, 2016
The weather has been amazing all week! I do hope that everyone has had an opportunity to enjoy it! The weather changing is an indication of things coming to an end and things beginning. Basketball season is coming to a close, so if you have not had the opportunity to see our boy's or girl's play, you only have a few more games. Track, tennis and soccer seasons are all around the corner and will be beginning soon.
Congrats to our band members for all earning 1's at their last band competition! Amazing to see all of our band students return with each one wearing medals!
Monday evening is going to be an exciting one for all of our 8th grade students. Mustang Nation and ParentU will deliver information to help with the next phase in your child's life. Both Counseling Departments have an amazing evening planned for either future Panther's or Mustang's.
Valentine's Day is only 8 DAYS away!
