Mustang Valley Elementary
Dear Mustang Valley Families, Summer 2020
Let me be the first to say “welcome” to Mustang Valley Elementary! Our special school opened its doors in 1957. At Valley, we embrace the challenges of the future while continuing to cherish and celebrate the traditions of the past. Our remarkable staff, involved parents, and committed students come together to make Mustang Valley a wonderful and unique place. Mustang Valley has caring staff members who are committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your children. We will accomplish this by setting high academic expectations for all children and providing supportive systems to assure they are met. We invite you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering and attending school events. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child.
Please review the information for the 2020-2021 school year:
*Year round enrollment is being handled via online submission, but things can/will change given the current situation. We encourage any new families to take advantage of this opportunity. Visit our district website for more information. http://www.mustangps.org
