Mustang Families,

Happy Monday! We have an exciting week ahead of us with events or activities scheduled for almost every day. On Tuesday, we have our Spelling Bee for 3-5 grade students.  Wednesday is another Early Dismissal Day with students being released at 12:45 pm. On Thursday, we have our monthly Fire Drill (safety procedures are always a priority) and our Winter Workshop Family Night. This is sure to be a great winter event for everyone that can attend. On Friday, we have a spirit day and everyone is invited to join the will be UGLY SWEATER day! We want to see how creative your family can be. We would even like to see parent sweaters at pickup time!

As most of you know, we are focused on an Attitude of Gratitude as our mindset for this month. With that in mind, life never ceases to amaze me with the coincidental connections that can be seen. In particular, this weekend, I was home playing a game ("Things") with family and friends. During the game, I picked up a card that asked me and the others in the game to list the things that we are grateful for. While the game is designed to take a humorous approach, I found myself on a sincere and reflective mental path while thinking about the people that I was with at that time and those that I spend each day with...our Mustang Family! This includes the students, parents, guests, volunteers, and staff. I simply couldn't shake that thought that there are a LOT of people that influence my life in a positive way and I truly appreciate how blessed I am. It is also my hope that we connect with one another in a way that leaves our students and families feeling the same as I do. If you and your students feel the same gratitude and positivity that I do when thinking about McCartney Ranch, we are doing something right. :-) Please talk with your kids about school and how they feel about their experiences. How they feel and what they learn are equally important.

Have a  great week!
