The Mustang Minute
January 4, 2019 - Issue 16
Welcome to 2019!
Coming up next week we have our final winter concert for grade six band, chorus, and orchestra which is sure to be a lot of fun! Later this month our National History Day contestants will present their projects for judging and celebrate their accomplishments at National History Day Night (say that one three times fast).
I hope everyone had a wonderful break, was able to spend time with your family, and are ready for an exciting 2019!

Chromebook Tips Update
- Remind students that NOTHING should be stored inside their Chromebook case (except their Chromebook) when they close it with other items inside, it cracks the screen.
- Try to keep the battery level above 10% dropping below can cause a hard shut down which can be difficult to restart and recharge.
- Bring those earbuds!
- Charge EVERY night!
