Mustang Families!

February is the month where we are bombarded with hearts and love. We have Valentine's Day and a heart healthy focus due to Jump Rope for Heart. We also participate in Love of Reading week. Love is in the air!

We are going to use the idea of "loving on others" to transition into our next Monthly Mindset, which is LIVE TO GIVE. Students will be hearing messages about giving their time, talents, and treasures to help benefit others. In particular, this week we talked about stretching ourselves. We connected our previous mindsets and asked students to identify their strengths so that they are able to give and share the best of themselves so that they may provided the greatest impact to others. Are there priorities or focus areas that you have as a family when it comes to giving? If you want to share, feel free to connect with us and the & Mindsets on twitter. We love to see our Mustangs in action!

This week we have a few unique events:
-On Monday, we will be hosting Chinese Exchange Students from the high school. They will visit most classrooms to get a sense of education in America. We are excited to share our school with them.
-On Tuesday and Thursday, some of our 4th grade classes will be heading out to CAC to learn about the 5 C's of Arizona.
-We have an Early Release Day on Wednesday. Please remember to have your transportation arranged prior to dismissal at 12:45 pm.
-After School Clubs start on Thursday for those that are signed up. If your student is participating, please be ready to pick them up by 4:00 pm.
-Friday is our annual Prince Charming Dance. We are excited to host such a memorable event for our girls and families.

We are looking forward to another great week. As you move through the week, let our Thoughtful Thursday quote from an unknown source for guide you... "If you have knowledge, let others light their candles with it."

All the best,
