Mustang Monitor: October 26

Indian Summer Greetings,

Not quite “football weather” bur forecasters say we’ll have a significant cool down by Friday.  Welcome to Arkansas.  We likely have several weeks remaining so locate those coats and blankets.

Thanks to so many for a good turn-out Friday evening.  The band, cheerleaders and a great Pinked Up student section made for a great atmosphere.  We do appreciate your support.  Only one more home, regular season game, Senior Night, on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 6.  Yes, the final regular season game will be on Thursday.  To save you a call; there are a couple of significant reasons.  Many conference play Thursday to allow coaches to scout (and be scouted) playoff opponents.  There will be several games in the state that Thursday, 48 or about 40%, with the balance being played on Friday.  So, we won’t be alone.  Senior Night events will begin at 6:30 so plan to come out early to honor this group of student athletes.

There will be NO WINTER SPORTS PARENT MEETING MONDAY EVENING.  While the sports medicine information is critical, as a convenience we will post the info on the CACMustangs.org website in the Forms and Downloads page under Athletics.  An update and instructions will be in a Monitor later this week.

Make the short trip to Lonoke to support the Lady Mustang Volleyball team as they being play in the 4A state tournament on Tuesday at 2:00 pm.  Wins will have them playing both Wednesday and Thursday at 4:00 pm.  The Student Dismissal Policy for Tuesday will be as it has for previous state tournaments.  The guidelines, for parent information, are:

Ø  Students must submit a Parent Permission Note to the office by 10:00 am Tuesday.

Ø  Students are to report to 6th period; they will be dismissed at 1:15.

Ø  Students must report to the designated administrator at the tournament site.

Ø  By following all of these guidelines, the absence will not appear on any school records.

Ø  There will be NO EARLY DISMISSAL for Wednesday or Thursday games.

A shout out to some junior high students who were named to the All Region Choir following auditions Saturday.  Those qualifying include:  Madison Stewart, Cassidy Lamb, Cicley Young, Paige Fairchild, Kaitlyn Hendrix and Jessica Turner.  Great job all!!  The concert will be Saturday, November 22 in North Little Rock.

The band and choir (grades 9-12) cookie sales continue through Thursday.  We will appreciate you all the more with your support through purchasing the frozen, pre-cut, ready for baking dough.  It comes in boxes for 40 cookies for $16.  See a band or choir member for your goodies or contact me; I’ll get your message to someone.  The cookies will be delivered before Thanksgiving Break.  The funds will go directly to benefits for the students in both of these programs.

You’ve probably heard, the Drama Department will present Beauty and the Beast as the spring musical.  To help prepare student (elementary and high school) for the November 12-14 auditions, there will be a free Audition Workshop Saturday, November 1, at 1:00 pm in the Auditorium.  Additional information is on the CAC website.  Contact Jenna Thomas at jthomas@cacmustangs.org with questions.

That’s a wrap for this edition.  Thank you for your attention; spread the word about the Mustang Monitoras we enter the winter sports season.  And, give us a shout if we can be of assistance.  (But, I’ll be in Lonoke as long as the Lady Mustangs continue in the tournament.)
