Mustang News - Friday, January 21st

From The Principal...

The four day week at Manitou Springs High School has flown by! The Mustangs have had several opportunities to experience deep learning in multiple classroom settings. Our painting class was able to take a walking field trip to the Manitou Art Center. Students were given access to the Sora app in order to access ebooks and audio books. There was also a meeting for students to learn about the Career Start Program offered through PPCC. These experiences add to the already amazing classroom teaching that our staff provides.

A unique opportunity for students who will be 16 years old by July 6th, 2022.

The UCD High School Summer Program returns for 2022 and applications are now open! The UCD High School Summer Program is an enrichment program designed specifically for North American students who are interested in learning more about Irish history and culture and may be considering the possibility of applying to universities in Ireland for their undergraduate degrees. Through a series of taught lectures and interactive workshops at UCD, we introduce students to the academic culture in Ireland and the variety of subjects they can study. We also introduce students to Ireland's rich history and cultural identity through field trips around Dublin and the Irish countryside. At the end of the two weeks, we hope the students will have found that the academic programs and vibrant cultural heritage will be a great fit for future studies.

To be eligible for this program, students must:

  • Be current sophomores or juniors (16 or 17 at the time of program)

  • Demonstrate a minimum 3.0 GPA.

  • Write a brief essay about their interest in the program and what would make them a good candidate for the program.

Dates: July 6th-21st, 2022.

Cost: €2,850 (excluding airfare)

Students who apply by February 1 will receive an early application discount of €250. This program is non-credit bearing.

More information about the program and the application form can be found here.

From The Art Department...

The painting class took a field trip to the Manitou Art Center where students will meet Su Chao, the featured artist. Su gave us a private artist talk about being a Korean citizen who grew up part-time in the United States and how this impacted his work and identity. His installation artwork was untraditional, thought-provoking, and very interactive. His show will be up at the MAC until January 30th.

From The Athletics Department...
