Principal's End of Year Letter


May 2016

Dear Mustang Valley Families,

 As we approach the end of yet another school year, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for your help and support this year.  We have had another very busy and successful year at Mustang Valley, and could not have possibly done it without your support.  Please know that everyone who has had the honor of teaching and working with your child at Mustang Valley is very thankful for your commitment to helping him/her succeed.  We thank you for your patience and understanding.  We thank you for your hours of volunteering.  We even thank you for all the great tasting goodies that seem to always make it to our school! 

 Please review the information listed below as it pertains to the end of the school year, as well as important information for the 2016-2017 school year:

 *The last day of school, May 26th, has a modified schedule.  School is in session from 7:40 am-11:40 am.  Students will be fed lunch before they are dismissed, and buses will run routes as usual.

*There are no backpacks allowed on the last day of school, May 26th.

*Parents must pick up all student medication by the last day of school.

*All library books due by May 12th.  Please make arrangements to pay for any lost books.

*Students MAY NOT charge lunches to their lunch accounts beginning May 2nd.

*Summer enrollment for all Mustang schools will be available.  For times, dates, and location please contact the Mustang Administration Office at 376-2461. Please encourage any new families to take advantage of this opportunity.

*School supply lists for the 2016-2017 school year will be available on-line at www.mustangps.org. In addition, the Valley PTA is selling pre-packaged school supplies.  Information was sent home with students.

*Elementary residency verification day (time tba)-ALL PARENTS/GUARDIANS MUST bring a current bill to complete your child’s enrollment.  This includes all students who turned in pre-enrollment forms in the spring.  No teacher will be assigned until residency has been verified.

*Your child’s 2016-2017 teacher will call you to introduce herself/himself sometime during the week of August 15th.

*The first day of school for the 2016-2017 school year is August 18th.  The district calendar can be found on-line at http://www.mustangps.org/
*Open house/meet the teacher night is on August 16th from 5:00-6:30 pm.  In order to minimize parking problems, we request that all families whose last name begins with the letters A-H come from 5:00-5:30, letters L-P come from 5:30-6:00, and letters Q-Z come from 6:00-6:30. Information on bus routes, after school care, and nutrition accounts will be available.

*Grade level parent meetings will be scheduled once school begins.  Valley student apparel (spirit wear) will be available for purchase at that time.

*Valley drop-off and pick-up procedures are as follows- Only buses and daycare vans will be allowed to drop students off at the east parking lot.  All car riders must be dropped off at our car rider loop off of SW 29th Street.  Student drop-off begins each morning at 7:15.  The tardy bell rings at 7:40.

*Take advantage of the many available resources on the district website.  Enroll in “My School Bucks” to monitor your child’s lunch account and deposit money;  track your child’s attendance and grades by signing up for “Parent Portal” (show photo ID at any Mustang school to receive your password to enroll); sign up for push notifications from your child’s school to your cell phone with the “School Connect” app; follow us on Twitter using the Twitter handle @mpsvalley; follow us on Instagram using the name @mpsvalley; and check to see if you are available to receive financial support for your child’s breakfast and lunch costs by completing the online “Free and Reduced Lunch” application.

 Finally, I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy and safe summer break.  I hope you find time to relax, rest, and spend quality time with your family.  I look forward to the 2016-2017 school year with great anticipation and hope for another outstanding year!

 Yours in education,

 Jill Mitchell, Principal
