Attention Mustang Families!

This week is short on days but long on excitement, fun, learning, and activities. We kick off the week with Spirit Week starting on Tuesday. We will have Tack Tuesday, Hat Day Wednesday, Character Costume Thursday, and Blue Pride Friday. Please join us in showing your school spirit. In addition to the spirit week, we have a lot going on. We have a Field Trip for Ms. Woehlecke and Mrs. Blakely on Tuesday. We also have a PTO Family Night at Chipotle on Tuesday evening Please join us and help the school by purchasing a meal so that some of the proceeds are returned to our PTO. On Wednesday, we have Mayor's Reading Club. Thursday is BUSY with Brown Bag Lunch, a PTO Meeting at 3:30, After School Clubs, and our ELL Family Night at 5:00.

Friday is a special day for me as I will be participating in the #ShadowAStudent Challenge. I will not be available as "Mr. Q." on Friday. Instead, I will be lacing up my sneakers and spending the day as a McCartney Ranch student. I can't wait to gain a unique perspective so that we can continue to work towards making this school the best place to teach and learn.

This week, we will continue our LIVE TO GIVE mindset. In particular we are actually focusing on being a gracious receiver. It can be a challenge to be a giver at times, but it can be even more difficult to receive gracefully. It is hard to receive praise, gifts, kudos, and other positive things. I know that it is a challenge for me and I have to actively work on this skill. Often times, we are quick to be humble (which is OK) and want to pass along praise and accolades to others that are helpful or just as deserving. Sometimes we need to just say "Thank You" instead. Maybe you can start small with your family by passing compliments around your house so that you can practice giving and receiving gracefully.

Have a great week!
