MMS Parent Newsletter
February 3, 2023
The February 14 Momentum23 bond election is an opportunity for us to invest in our students, our community and our future.
Please remember this program will help the district invest in the following for students:
A new elementary school and a high school expansion to alleviate overcrowding and prepare for our rapidly growing student enrollment.
Safety features, including cameras, secure access upgrades and fencing.
New buses and transportation vehicles to provide students with safe, reliable transportation to and from school and school activities.
Expanded student opportunities, including decreased class sizes and increased instructional time, thanks to more classroom space.
Fine arts and athletic equipment, uniforms, materials and instruments.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) equipment and other instructional resources.
A playground refresh throughout the district.
Upgrades to technology devices for students and staff, along with updates to software and out-of-date classroom technology, like presentation boards.
Improvements and maintenance for existing school facilities, including lighting, electrical, roofing, flooring and heating/cooling units. Including the addition of HVAC at the MMS & MNMS gymnasiums.
If you have any questions about the upcoming investment election, email us at MERCcontact@mustangps.org or visit https://www.mustangps.org/departments/bonds-construction.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your family.

Mustang Public Schools
7th to 8th Enrollment Process
Feb. 6th - An email will be going out to parents to begin the re-enrollment process. This will be sent out to parents and include a link for parents to complete through an Online Re-enrollment Login. This login code will only be sent to the parent listed first in PowerSchool. Please look closely to your emails on Monday.
Feb. 8th - Students will meet with Mr. Wagnon and the 8th grade counselor to discuss the process and provide examples. The slideshow used will go out that evening to parents.
Then, students will have until March 3rd to complete class registration. Class registration cannot be completed until re-enrollment has been completed. It is imperative that students have both processes completed by March 3rd. If they do not, there is no guarantee they will get the elective classes they want. We build out the schedule and number of class offerings based on these class registration numbers.
Freshmen Enrollment Process
Feb. 9th - All students will meet individually with the high school counselors through their US History classes to discuss the class registration process. They need to have their Freshmen Schedule Planning worksheets completed when they meet with the counselors. If your student did not make it home with their Freshmen Schedule Planning worksheet last Friday, we have more in the office. These worksheets will help ensure that students and parents select the correct course options when completing the online class registration.
Pre-Enrollment and online class registration must both be completed by February 19th at midnight.
