Mustang News - October 13th, 2022
From The Principal
We hope you’ve enjoyed your short week! Thank you to all of the students and staff who participated in our PSAT 9 and PSAT NMSQT on Wednesday, as well as all Mustang families for accommodating our adjusted schedule. This was a powerful opportunity for students to practice the exam, staff to collect updated student achievement data, and students to potentially earn significant scholarships!
Next week, we are looking forward to Family Conferences on Thursday, 10/20 and Friday, 10/21. We will be sending communication to all students and families on Friday afternoon (10/14) with details about how to schedule virtual conferences with staff.
Enjoy your long weekend!

Congratulations to longtime Manitou Springs football coach George Rykovich for his election into the CHSAA Hall of Fame! Ryko led the Mustangs to 222 wins (17th all-time in state history) and two state championships (1987 and 1990) in his time coaching the team from 1971-2006. We invite former players and alumni to congratulate Coach Rykovich at halftime of the La Junta game on Oct. 21. Rykovich is the second Manitou Springs High School representative to be elected to the hall of fame with Justin Armour being the first. Ryko will formally be inducted into the CHSAA Hall of Fame on Jan. 23, 2023. Tickets will be available to the induction ceremony, and we will pass along that information as soon as we get it.
Congrats Coach Rykovich and Go Mustangs!
