The Mustang High School Event Center was packed in honor of the 1345th Transportation Company as they prepared to say goodbye to their families to head overseas. They'll return sometime in 2017. Every school in the district was involved in the event, either donating candy so the soldiers could enjoy snacks on their journey or making banners. Student groups also got involved. The Varsity Choir sang The National Anthem and This Is My Country. The JROTC posted the colors and acted as ushers. Pom and FFA students were in charge of handing out the 168 bags of candy. A girl scout troop made posters and stood in two lines outside the doorway leading to the lobby of the event center as the troops and their families passed through.
 
And the community came out in force. Thank you Mustang for taking your time on a Sunday morning to honor these soldiers.

Superintendent's Message on HB 779

Message from Mustang Superintendent of Schools

Dr. Sean McDaniel

Nov. 8 will be a big day for public education in Oklahoma. It is the day Oklahomans will have an opportunity to cast their vote regarding State Question 779. Among other things that I will outline below, SQ 779, if passed, would provide a funding source for a $5,000 teacher pay raise. No other long-term funding plan for education is on the table.

As the superintendent of schools in our community, one of the most important duties I have is to provide information to our patrons regarding issues that could impact our school district and to raise awareness of these critical issues. State Question 779 is a critical issue that I believe you should know about.

Hertz Corporation donates chairs to MPS
The old PE building was filled up with office chairs after the Hertz Corporation donated approximately 300 to Mustang Public Schools this month. Jerry Teddy, Oklahoma City security manager for the Hertz Corporation, said the company is replacing original furnishings like chairs and couches. Hertz has donated equipment to MPS before and Teddy, a Mustang resident, decided to offer the chairs to the district. 
Renner named Director of Human Resources
Mustang Public Schools has hired Dana Renner to take on the position of Director of Human Resources, overseeing a staff of four that serves a district of nearly 1,200 employees. 
The Bridge donates $50,000 for second year to MPS
For the second year in a row, a local church has presented Mustang Public Schools with a check for $50,000 to pay for a year's worth of copy paper for all 13 school sites. Jim McNabb, pastor of the The Bridge, said simply, "It is part of our DNA to be a blessing to our schools and school district."
 
Mustang Schools Superintendent Dr. Sean McDaniel said he was overwhelmed.
 
Update on heating and air conditioning improvements at MPS
Heating and air-conditioning is a concern for every Oklahoma school as the doors open to students in the heat of August. Johnny Clark, maintenance manager, provided a run down on the improvements that have been put in place at Mustang Schools over the summer.

Thanks to voters and the passage of the February 2016 bond issue, the 20 ton "package unit" that provides both heating and air conditioning to Mustang Creek Elementary's gym has been replaced. Another 12 ton unit was replaced for the family and consumer sciences classroom at Mustang North Middle School. Hiring a contractor to handle the entire process for both units would have cost the district more than $64,000. Instead, Clark has an HVAC license and the district ordered the units and the cranes. Then, a contractor was hired to install the units. In all it cost less than $36,000 for the parts and labor to install both units.
