Mustang Memo


News & Notes

- Be prepared for a fire drill next week.

- Innovative grant proposals are being accepted. If you have a great individual idea, grade-level idea, or field trip in mind, submit a proposal. The foundation really likes STEM-related, innovative submissions.

- Keep supervision levels high these next two weeks. If you have a morning duty, you should be on that duty immediately after signing in. Watch transition times closely such as recess and bathroom breaks.

- We are doing a canned food drive through our student council. This is an excellent opportunity to teach out students about service to others. We'll run this through Dec. 18.

Tacky Sweater Party!

The staff holiday party will be at the Aycock house on Friday, Dec. 11 at 7pm. This always a fun time for all!

(BTW, this picture is NOT from last year's party...)
