Parents asked to adhere to arrival times for Pre-K Round-up

Parents who plan to attend Mustang’s Pre-kindergarten Round-up should be aware of construction around Mustang High School and south Mustang Road. The annual event, set for 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 26, at the MHS Commons is an opportunity for parents to enroll their children in pre-kindergarten, or to enroll kindergarten students who are new to the district. 

Stacy Edwards, executive director of elementary schools, said construction areas at MHS and the closing of northbound traffic on Mustang Road for a widening project will impact travel time. 

“We want this to be as efficient for parents as possible,” Edwards said. “We ask that no one arrive at Mustang High School before 4:30 p.m. so that our high school students can clear the campus. There are also designated times for parents to arrive based on their child’s last name to streamline the process, improve traffic flow and limit wait times.” 

• A through J - 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. 
• K through Z - 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. 
• Anyone unable to attend their designated time can come from 6:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. 

Arriving early at Round-up will not increase a child’s chances of getting a pre-k spot. Enrollment will be determined by an impartial drawing of all eligible students at a later date and is not determined by the order the packets are received.

Parents of students who will be old enough for pre-kindergarten in August should bring their completed packets to Pre-Kindergarten Round-up. Students must be 4-years-of-age on or before Sept. 1, 2019 to be eligible to be enrolled in pre-k. Attendance is required to be entered into the drawing for full-day pre-k. Parents must turn in completed enrollment packets, with all the correct supporting documents and an up-to-date shot record to be part of the lottery. Packets and a fact sheet with additional information are available online at http://www.mustangps.org/enrollment.aspx.

Julie Muse was named Teacher of the Year for Mustang Valley Elementary. Muse teaches third and fourth grade mild/moderate special education, ELA and math. She’s been teaching for 14 years, seven of those with Valley. 
Muse fell in love with the idea of teaching while she was working as a nanny and attending college. Breanne, the third of four children, had developmental delays. She was a little over 2-years-old, and the family was just learning of her special needs. 

“I got to see her blossom,” she said. “She helped me learn how to work with children with different abilities. Breanne planted the seed for my future as a special education teacher.” 

Muse started her teaching career at the high school level.

Fifth-grade math teacher, Keith Aynes was named Teacher of the Year for Canyon Ridge Intermediate. He’s been teaching for 20 years, 16 year of those with MPS and four at CRI.

Aynes became interested in teaching while he was in the Marines. 

I did some volunteer work while in the Marine Corps to help with a Boys and Girls Club. At first my time spent volunteering was somewhat exhausting and challenging,” he said. “As time passed I began to look forward to those days and eventually thought maybe this would be something to pursue when my enlistment was over.”
He loves teaching math, and has found a home with fifth grade.

Chelsea Price, a Title 1 reading teacher, was named Mustang Elementary’s Teacher of the Year for 2018-2019. Price knew when she was in elementary school that she would be a teacher. There was no grade level or subject she had to teach; she just had to teach. 

“I was in 3rd grade when I knew I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up and surprisingly my mind never changed,” she said. “I had so many amazing teachers along the way who helped me confirm my decision.”
