Congratulations to the following students whose work went on to be judges at the county level.

  • Dance: Kate Burke; Emerson Dickey; Marley Dixon

  • Visual Arts: Marley Dixon; Yash Jain; Victor He; Daniel Rellan Garza

Results from the county judging will be shared later in the year.


Spiritwear for the Holidays: Martin spiritwear makes great holiday gifts. Orders placed by Friday, December 9th, will be available for pick-up before winter break. If you want to arrange for pick-up rather than the order going home with your student, please indicate “parent pick-up” in the homeroom field. To order: Spiritwear.


Thank you, Mustangs, and have a wonderful week.
