OG&E grant to make unified robotics a reality
Mustang High School’s Robotics Club is the first in Oklahoma to launch a Unified Robotics program that partners mainstream Robotics Club students with students with special needs. Matt Moore, robotics coach, said the program began last year with a robotics team in Washington state. 
Theatre students get superior rating with OSSAA One Act Competition


MHS Theatre students came home from the OSSAA State One Act in Tulsa as 6A State Champions! Thirty-two of Mustang's finest performed our one act, The White Snake by Mary Zimmerman, and received a superior rating, earning the title of 6A State Champions. Additionally, they won "Best Costumes" and "Best Direction," and three students (Emma White, Alexis Perry, and Kenny Le) were chosen as "All-State One Act Cast Members."
 
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.  
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. 
It's cold and flu season!

Dear Parents,

It’s that time of year when colds, strep throat, the flu and stomach bugs are passed around in our schools. District custodial staff disinfect each of the school sites using Virex, but we need your help as well.

Common colds are the main reason children miss school and adults miss work. Please remind your children how important it is for them to wash their hands well, for at least 20 seconds each time. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report the spread of colds and other illnesses can be reduced if children avoid touching their face with unwashed hands. Also, they should cover their mouth with a tissue or with their sleeve when they cough or sneeze.

Attendance at school is very important, however, students cannot be expected to perform well if they are ill. Please keep students home if they are running a temperature. Students must be free of fever, vomiting or diarrhea for twenty-four (24) hours without the aid of medication before returning to school. If your child becomes ill during the school day and has a temperature of 100 degrees or more, he/she will be sent home.

If your phone number may have changed, please contact the office. Schools need current telephone numbers for parents, guardians and all emergency contacts. Questions? Call the nurse for child’s school. 

Thank you!
