Spirit of the Mustang - November 2016

Mailani Ovard

Jodi is a fun, kind person who takes the time to help students.  Even some of the toughest students seem to do well in her class.  Last year I had a student who did not want to work in any of his classes, but when given a choice he would always choose to do the work for Jodi's class.  He chose to do the work for her class not because he loved health class, but because Jodi would make accomodations, and he felt valued.  Jodi shows the students that she cares.  

Jodi was one of the first teachers that I met at this school, and since our classrooms where next door to each other in what I call the social abyss. the 400 hall.  Jodi made me feel welcomed.  She was always there to help or listen.  Even when I moved to the 100 hall she would take time to find out how I was doing.  I concider Jodi a wonderful teacher, a confidant and a friend!  

Sharing Kindness in CTE

Bonny Groneman

We had the privilege to have mother and son Sam and Christine Durst visit as guest speakers in Mrs. Groneman's College and Career Awareness classes this week.  Sam has cerebral palsy and does many kind things for others in our community.  He is a great example of sharing and being kind to others.  We are so happy they took the time out to visit our students and share with us his story.

This month we kicked off our annual fundraiser. Our fundraiser this year is about “Making A Mustang Difference” to as many people as we can and will go until this Friday, November 11th.

Our fundraiser will support many different service projects throughout the year, we have one planned for each month. Examples are:

  • Donating toys and necessities to children in need as well as students at MJHS in December for Christmas,

  • Making blankets for Primary Children's & The Huntsman Cancer Research Foundation

  • Getting supplies put together for the Ronald McDonald House

  • Donating books to our own Special Education department  

  • A project for the local Veterans.

Please consider donating to our fundraiser. Our goal is $3000. Every dollar makes a difference. If students donate $5, they get put in a drawing for a prize or participate in our rewards assembly. Thanks so much for your support. We truly have the best students and parents!
