Benchmarks are coming up very soon. Please look for more information from our counselor, Rebecca Green!

Thanks for your continued support! Have a great weekend!

Counselor's Corner:

This month we have been focusing on Fairness. Part of being fair is listening and being open to different viewpoints. This can be a difficult skill for children to learn, but it does improve with age! You can help your child be successful in school and in life by helping your child see situations from another’s point of view. This doesn’t mean we always agree with the other point of view, but it does help us have empathy and compassion.

From Our Registrar:

Re-enrollment starts tomorrow! If you do not have access to a computer, or just want assistance completing the re-enrollment, join us for Mustang Meet-up! We will have computers set up in the Atrium and staff available to assist you from 10:00am to 2:30pm and 5:00pm to 6:30pm. Please make sure to come by if you need assistance! If you are not able to make it for any of these times, contact Judy Frazier at to set up a time to come in. We look forward to a smooth re-enrollment!!!
