Mustang Monitor – September 12th
I have found cooler weather! Sadly, it is in Indianapolis; and will be enjoyed through Monday afternoon. AND, a most unusual occurrence (hopefully not speaking too soon), Delta has done its job flawlessly…, so far.
A big week ahead as activities are stacked on top of activities. Which, of course, does make the weeks fly by!
A report on the Haiti Spirit Day – Over $3,000 was raised to go to the Lagosette School in Haiti! At $12-ish a pair, that is over 250 pairs of shoes!!! And likely enough for some other needs of those great “Mustangs” at Lagosette. A big thank you for Danny Sullivan for leadership and to the great support by our students and YOU! Please know, your support will be most judiciously applied and greatly appreciated.
There will be a big patriotic push on Monday to honor those who have given so much of themselves to the greatness of the USA. To honor America, the students are asked to dress so as to construct a Living American Flag. Shortly after chapel the student body and teachers will assemble in the gym to form a “Star Spangled Banner”. To accomplish this, students are asked to dress accordingly: 6 – 8 grades in Blue; 9 – 10 grades in White; 11 – 12 grades in Red. And thank you in advance for your support and a thank you to the History Club for planning Monday’s events.
Tuesday evening will be one of the great occasions of the year; the Drama Club’s Talent Show!! A good number of student acts, including representatives from each grade, the CAC Senior Choir, Lights Up and the Elementary Musical Theater Clinic group will display great talent beginning at 7:00 pm. Admission price is $6.00 per person. There will also be a bake sale in the Atrium at Intermission. We hope to see you there for some outstanding entertainment
Before Friday’s football game, the 2016 Girls Soccer State Championship Team will be presented their championship rings. The presentation will begin about 6:35. Please come a bit early, get a parking spot and help us honor there special student athletes. At halftime, the Elementary Cheer Clinic groups will perform along with a fine marching performance by the Mustang Band.
Two special items of individual note. Lady Mustang Golfer, Josie Roberson is “suffering” in southern California and playing in The First Tee National Open Tournament at Pebble Beach. More information may be found here. Best wishes to Josie and her caddie, father David, for some good play and safe travels. Also, Isabelle Rhodes, 6th grader, was cast in the role of Clara for the holiday performance of The Nutcracker Suite by Ballet Arkansas and the Arkansas Symphony at Robinson Auditorium. Show dates are December 9-11; Izzi will be performing the Saturday, 2:00 pm show. I am quite confident Tchaikovsky had her in mind when he composed the piece. Mustang Proud of you two young ladies.
That will wrap up this edition. Hope you have a great week and also hope to see you on Mustang Mountain. Holler if we may be of assistance.
