Friday Thoughts: What It Means To Be A CAC Mustang
This week just about sums up what it means to be a CAC Mustang.
We are mission-minded.
Coach Sullivan kicked off our Haiti fundraiser for Mustang Missions. He showed a powerful video and challenged our students to step up and help those in need. We will continue the fundraising with a spirit day ($2 or more) on Tuesday. Click here to read Coach Sullivan’s recent post on The ‘Stang.
We are family.
Each year during the first few weeks of school, the 8th graders take a little time after chapel and welcome the new members of their class. They present their new classmates with a gift bag and give them an official welcome. I love what this does for a class and it really makes our new students feel welcome and part of the family.
We are passionate learners.
One of my favorite classroom observations this week was when I participated in a 7th grade science lab about bias. We tested our own biases with Fruit Loops, Fruit Spins, and Tootie Fruities. It was a great experience, we got to eat cereal in class, and the students were shocked when they discovered they preferred the bag of Tootie Fruities over the name-brand (and much more expensive) Fruit Loops. I’m thinking parents may be excited to learn those results as well.
We are Mustangs.
Tuesday’s game was epic and will go down in history as one of the greatest game endings in CAC football history. However, what made it even more special was our school spirit. From our pep rally, to the spirit tunnel, to the way our student section went crazy at the game, the love for our school was on display.
It was a great week on Mustang Mountain. I can’t wait to see what next week will bring!
