The Start

from August 17th, 2017 Jordan Collier by Jordan Collier

What a great start to the school year! I’ve heard so many positive stories from students who are excited about what’s in store for this year and how much they love being on Mustang Mountain. I love being surrounded by students who genuinely like being together at school each day, but what’s really awesome is […]

The End

from May 19th, 2017 Jordan Collier by Jordan Collier

We did it! We made it to the end. Thank you for a great year! As you finish grades, clean up classrooms, and wind down, let me encourage you to spend some time reflecting on the year. Even though we’re tired, it’s good to write things down while they’re top-of-mind. What was the best lesson […]

Thank You

from May 5th, 2017 Jordan Collier by Jordan Collier

This has been a great week of honoring the efforts of our students— collegiate scholarships, academic accolades, and athletic accomplishments (today). When you add in the soccer and baseball tournaments, last night’s band concert, our choir concert Sunday, and then the Lights Up! chapel performance on Monday, I’d say our students have really been able […]

“I’ll Do Whatever”

from April 21st, 2017 Jordan Collier by Jordan Collier

We’ve been here before. At this time last year (and the year before), I wrote in the Friday Thoughts about all the things happening on Mustang Mountain. I wrote about the craziness going on at school as we were planning the banquet, standardized testing, the ACCESS Gators meet, the Day of Service, and many other […]

How do you ___?

from April 17th, 2017 Jordan Collier by Jordan Collier

In chapel on Tuesday, Coach Watson shared a great message encouraging our students to ask questions in order to learn ways to read their Bible and how to pray. To help give students ideas, he shared responses from several faculty and staff to demonstrate the multiple ways we study and pray during our own individual […]

What If?

from April 10th, 2017 Jordan Collier by Jordan Collier

It’s been only twenty-three days since our accreditation visit, but it already feels like it was so long ago. During that week, we all felt added pressure and a heightened sense of responsibility, and everyone (students included) were proud to show off our school. I loved it (even with the added stress of the week). […]

20%

from April 3rd, 2017 Jordan Collier by Jordan Collier

Right now, we have 35 days of school remaining. Thirty-five. Three-five. A school year is 178 days long, and with 35 days remaining, that means we have less than 20% of the year remaining (and for seniors, it’s even less that that!). We’re all fully aware of how fast the next few weeks will go […]

This Is Us

from March 17th, 2017 Jordan Collier by Jordan Collier

Today, as we wrap up the accreditation site visit, we’ll be given a list of several things we must improve before our next accreditation visit. While it might be uncomfortable to hear some of those suggestions as they will be a reflection on my leadership, I know that’s part of the process and I’m ready […]
