Mustang Families,

Happy Monday! If you chose to spend Saturday at the Electric Light Parade, I hope that you had as much fun as my family and I did. It is always great to see a community come together for such a wonderfully positive event. The Holiday Spirit is in the air. It could be seen, heard, and felt!

Normally things begin to speed up this time of year with home and school activities. Before we really pick up steam, we have a relatively calm week. While we do not have large school-wide activities, we will begin Benchmark Assessments across all grade levels so that we can continue to support our students with any areas of academic challenge or enrichment. The data from these assessments helps us plan our instruction for the remainder of our school year. We are also excited to see and celebrate the progress that so many of our students have made.

Please don't for get that Wednesday is another Early Dismissal Day. Students will be released at 12:45 pm.

As we continue through the month of December, our mindset continues to be ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE. In particular, the weekly focus was about "elevating your perspective." Taking this approach allows us to appreciate the challenges that life presents to us. We begin to see that these adversities are simply opportunities to develop critical skills and essential knowledge that will allow us to be successful in the future. Are you someone that can find the positives in these difficult circumstances? Taking this approach gives you the ability to be more grateful on a more frequent occasions. I would encourage you to talk with your family so that you can embrace the "try hard" and exercise your grit and determination to realize all of your potential life equity. Elevate your perspective to constant gratitude and you will enjoy the journey more.

As always, thanks for being a partner in your child's journey. Have a great week!
