The Tennis Team has got off to an incredible start.  Coach Johnson and I have had so much fun.  The kids take such good care of each other and are always so supportive.  Most importantly, they represent the school so well. Way to go Mustangs!

Spirit of the Mustang - September

Josh Hobbs came to our school last year as a second year teacher.  He teaches Art in all its forms.  I've been so impressed with Josh!  He came to a classroom that had tons of material from previous teachers, a schedule that he didn't choose or have input on, and ended up needing to teach an extended day, which meant that he had no prep period.  Add to that the fact that his wife had a darling baby girl and he started working on his Masters degree.  This would be enough to put anyone over the edge! Yet - Josh came and continues to come to work every day with a smile on his face and an eagerness to work with his students! He loves to share his love of art and to help students find success as they try new things.  His positive attitude is contagious!  There are days when I purposely seek him out just so that I can feel better.  He is human - he does have days when he's frustrated, but he manages to find solutions that are positive for everyone involved.  He also has been so willing to help out wherever he is needed/So many of his colleagues have commented on what a great addition Josh is to our staff.  He truly exemplifies the Spirit of  the Mustang!

Welcome Back Assembly - "Our Time is Now"

The assembly today was really fun. Most of it was based on High School Musical, but the student government put in some of their own words. My favorite part of the assembly was the basketball song: I love how they did the moves and worked with the basketballs. They didn’t just dribble and throw the basketballs in the air. A part in the dance was a student singing, and, man, can he hit the high notes.

The game played during the assembly was really interesting. Students chosen from the audience had a few minutes to learn as much as they could about each other. Then they were quizzed on how well they knew their partners.

The dance where the teachers joined in was super funny. Some teachers were really into it. Putting the school mascot, Steve the ‘Stang, in the assembly was an excellent choice. Whoever he or she is, they were a great addition. It was an amazing assembly that kicked off an amazing year.

The theme this year is one of the best. It can relate to anybody because “Our Time is Now.” We can choose who we want to and will become. We need to put all our effort into this school year and make it a great year.
