At a time when some people are counting down the years to retirement after long careers, Dana Larson started a new one. Looking back over three decades since, all paths seem to have led to Mustang North Middle School. This year, Larson was named the school’s Teacher of the Year. 

Larson graduated from Perkins-Tryon High School and then from Oklahoma State with a degree in business. She spent some time working 80 hour weeks, managing her own Radio Shack store before her husband, Mark, took a job in Dallas. Larson went to work as an entry-level bank teller. Her bank was part of a large merger with multiple branches and Larson found her job description changing. 

“Four months in, and my assistant manager came to me and said they’re hiring for this special eight person conversion committee,” Larson said. “Involved in the merger is the conversion of data to all one database.”

Mustang’s new elementary and intermediate schools will no longer be known as Elementary #8 and Intermediate #3. After a vote by the Board of Education Monday, they are now Riverwood Elementary and Meadow Brook Intermediate. Current fourth and fifth grade students suggested names for the intermediate school and second and third graders submitted names for the elementary school. According to board policy, suggestions had to be historical or geographical and could not be the name of a private individual. 

One student tried to skirt the rules about naming the school for an individual by suggesting West Brook Elementary. More colorful names included “Mole Hill,” “Shimmer Shine,” "Creative Visions Elementary" and "Chief Moji Intermediate." After all of the submissions were collected, an administrative committee whittled the suggestions down to three. 

Riverwood Elementary will open near 44th Street and Czech Hall Road. Meadow Brook Intermediate is under construction at 15th Street and Czech Hall Road. Both will be ready for the 2018-2019 school year.

The Mustang Board of Education unanimously approved a modified version of the proposed 2018-2019 elementary and intermediate school boundaries at their regular meeting Monday. Changes were based on parent feedback whenever it could be accommodated, information on housing developments slated for construction, accounting for growth and maintaining enough classroom space to accommodate full-day pre-kindergarten at each elementary for as many students as possible.

Mustang parents with children in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade are invited to an informal open forum where they can view large maps and talk one-on-one with district personnel about the proposed boundary realignment for the elementary and intermediate schools. The forum is from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 8, at the Mustang High School Commons. Parents will have an opportunity to submit their concerns and thoughts on the proposed plan in writing. The comments will be disseminated to the steering committee. 

Thanks to the support of the community, Mustang Public Schools will be opening its eighth elementary school and third intermediate school for the 2018-2019 school year. The schools cannot open soon enough. The district continues to grow steadily, gaining  more than 400 students this year alone. The largest growth is concentrated in the northern side of the district.

To populate the new schools, relieve overcrowding at other schools and balance the enrollment at all the elementary and intermediate schools, the district put together a steering committee to create a proposal for the new boundaries. The committee will review comments submitted from the boundary realignment page on the district website as well as comments from the forum. 

If someone would like to submit their comments but cannot make it to the open forum, the proposed boundaries can be seen at http://www.mustangps.org/BoundaryRealignment2018.aspx

 More than $4000 has been given to Mustang Public Schools in recent weeks to pay for delinquent lunch accounts for families facing financial hardship. The Silver Stallion, Lakehoma Church of Christ, and Mustang North Middle School grandfather Eric Moreau have given this year along with an $800 donation from anonymous donors to Prairie View Elementary. 
      Child Nutrition Director Tammy Bales said the need is especially dire right after the holidays. She was presented with a check for $2,000 from The Silver Stallion last week that can be used anywhere in the district.
