Principal's Messages - 2017/18
Mustangs have started off the new year in a full gallop. If the first two weeks of 2018 are any indication of what is ahead, then we are in for a dynamic year of learning. I am very excited to introduce two new teachers to our excellent and caring staff. Sonya Martin will be teaching a reconfigured 1st, 2nd, 3rd grade class to support our special education programs and Riley Steidlmayer will be joining Mr. Patusco in teaching the 1st – 5th grade art classes.
