Mustang Monitor – October 25th and 28th
Soggy, but mostly Patricia-less Greetings,
We hope this finds you well and grateful for the precipitation participation. It is grand and so very badly needed. It looks like things will work out well for a good watering and time to dry before field usage on Friday.
Varsity Football for a good win Friday. It virtually assures the Mustangs of hosting a 4A playoff game on November 13. More details later.
Junior Football for a good win Thursday. This allows them to play Bauxite at Bauxite for the River City Championship on Tuesday; kickoff at 7:00 pm (no 7th grade game)
Senior and Junior Cheer – Working hard for school spirit and not missing a lick with all the games going on. Great job Ladies and coaches!
Varsity Volleyball – 4A State Tournament play this week in Mena!! May many trips, safe travel and success to the Ladies! Progress reports will be posted on Twitter, @BowTieAD if you’re interested.
The previously announced Pre-Game Dinner scheduled for Friday has been postponed to a later date.
Band and Choir – Cookie sales begin Tuesday. We appreciate your support for these great programs and the students they serve. Portioned, frozen cookies in a multitude of varieties will be offered. A box of 40 cookies will sell for $16. Orders (with payment) may be placed with members of each group. You may also contact me; I’ll route your inquiry to a student. The products will be in Wednesday, November 18, before the holiday baking time.
A bit of serious business and requests for your prayers on behalf of several:
Brad Gist – His cancer chemo treatments continue with good evidence of beneficial progress. No notion of how much longer but surgery is not expected.
Cindy Sitler – Long-time loyal “accomplice” in the office will undergo knee replacement surgery tomorrow. Remember her for minimal pain and a speedy recovery.
Robinson and Hot Springs Lakeside schools – Your might have heard, an 8th grader died at Robinson Middle School last Tuesday during a class. Additionally, a long-time teacher/coach and the announcer at many Robinson events suffered a heart attack during class Thursday. All seems to be progressing well with her. The school bus accident victims at Lakeside: Visiting with their AD a bit ago; nearly all have been released from the hospital and all expect full recoveries.
Let’s be prayerful and careful out there folks.
That’s it for now. An exciting week ahead; I’ll be in and out. However, if you need anything, give a shout. Just a bit louder than usual.
Doug Killgore, CMAA
End of Soggy (maybe) Greetings,
Oh, but hasn’t it been good to get some rain and settle the dust??
