Good evening Mustang families. Thank you to the families who attended our 1st Martin Family Coffee on Friday. It was great to connect with you in-person! I enjoyed the conversation and the community building. Our October Coffee will either be virtual or blended. Details to come!
6th Grade Family Coffee: A 6th grade specific Coffee is scheduled for this Friday, September 23rd, at 8am and it will be virtual. Please note this is a change from previous communications. The meet link is: https://meet.google.com/upd-sqys-ksz.
Science Olympiad: Science Olympiad is back for the 2022-23 school year! Join us for a year of science, competition, and teamwork! If you're interested, see Mr. Beko in room 1210 or check out the flyers posted around the school.
FastBridge: All students will take the FastBridge benchmark on Tuesday during Corral Time. Fastbridge is a reading comprehension progress monitoring tool that will be used across WCPSS this year. It is replacing iReady, which was used for the last several years. Students are encouraged to bring headphones/earbuds for this assessment. Teachers will use the results to help determine instructional practices and activities to implement to support student growth. For questions, please contact Stephen May at email@example.com.
