Dear Families,

We had a great week back after our Thanksgiving break. Students were excited to be back on campus and learning in their classrooms. We have two weeks until winter break. I'm excited to share that we will implement our Mustang Tickets starting next week. Please read more about Mustang Tickets below. Please remember to sign up to participate in our annual holiday craft fair. In an effort to keep enough space in between crafters, we are asking families to sign up for a time to visit the craft fair on 12/4/21. The flyer below has information on how to sign up for a craft time.


Reminder: December 17th is a minimum day for all students. Dismissal is at 12:30 for K-5th grades 12/17/21.

Mustang Tickets Are Back!

Starting 12/6/21, our staff will be on the lookout for students making good choices around campus. Students who are being responsible, safe, and respectful can earn a Mustang Ticket! Students will enter their tickets in a grade level lottery each week. Students whose names are pulled each Friday will receive a small prize in the office. Students will also have a copy of their Mustang Ticket to take home and share with their families. Mustang Tickets are very exciting for our students and promote our positive behavior intervention support system school-wide.
