Public invited to “Coffee with the Superintendent” in December
 
 
Mustang Public Schools superintendent, Dr. Sean McDaniel, has announced a series of informal meetings to visit with patrons in a face-to-face setting and answer questions about the upcoming bond issue. Four dates have been selected for “Coffee with the Superintendent,” two in the morning and two in the evening in December. Everyone is welcome. Seating is limited though, so those who would like an opportunity for in depth information on the upcoming bond issue are encouraged to register.

Other topics will also be welcome.

“This will be a casual get-together,” McDaniel said. “I’ll have information to share on the bond issue, but any question is welcome.”

Dates scheduled include:

  • Tuesday morning, Dec. 6, at IHOP, 1068 E. State Hwy 152 from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.
  • Thursday evening, Dec. 8, Mustang Elementary Media Center, 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday Morning, Dec. 13, Wild Hero Coffee Co., 331 N. Mustang Road from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.
  • Thursday evening, Dec. 15, Canyon Ridge Intermediate Media Center, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Seating is limited. Email the superintendent’s secretary, Brenda Dunn, at dunnbr@mustangps.org to register. Or call 405-376-7399.

“I have wanted to start ‘Coffee with the Superintendent’ for some time,” McDaniel said. “The upcoming bond seemed like the perfect reason to schedule some dates and make it happen. We would like to schedule a date or two every nine weeks to talk about anything the patrons would like to discuss.”

In the meantime, district patrons can stop by the district website at www.mustangps.org/bondissue2017.aspx to see a project list along with frequently asked questions and answers.

Coaching change slated for boys' basketball
Mustang Public Schools has learned that Terry Long is resigning from his position as the Mustang High School boy’s basketball coach effective today, Monday, Oct. 3. He will continue his teaching duties with Mustang Schools.

“Coach Long said that economically he has reached a position personally where he must make changes to provide for his family,” said Superintendent Dr. Sean McDaniel. “He’s heartbroken to make this announcement as the season has just started, but the time has come when he feels there is no other choice.”

While Long will teach during the day, he will be giving private lessons in the evening, a much more lucrative option than what the school can provide with a coaching stipend.

“Coach Long is one of the premier 6A coaches in the state,” McDaniel said. “We have been blessed to have him be part of the Bronco athletics program.”

Mustang High School Assistant Principal Robert Foreman, who was a basketball coach for many years, is taking over the program for the remainder of the season. McDaniel said Foreman understands this will be a difficult transition for the team, but he’s excited about the opportunity to step in and lead a team as talented as this one. Foreman brings a wealth of knowledge to the program. He has coached four years at the collegiate level, 13 years as a high school head coach, with nine of these as a 6A head boys’ coach. He is currently the Director of the Oklahoma Swish Basketball Club. Players were made aware of the change Monday afternoon.
