The 2020-2021 school year has come to a close and I want to say thank you to all of our students, parents, faculty, staff, and communities. By working together we were able to provide a successful in-person learning experience for our students. The classrooms were alive with kids ready to learn. The courts, fields, and track were bustling with activity and noise. The band played, voices sang, clubs met, and friends were together. What an awesome thing to see! Our students persevered and succeeded in the face of uncertainty. They showed us all how to be resilient and hopeful. Our parents showed unending support, understanding and flexibility. Our teachers gave their all, and then gave some more. They faced seemingly endless obstacles, while continuing to guide, support, and care for each and every student. Our support staff worked harder than ever to ensure that everyone and everything was expertly taken care of. Our communities rallied around our schools and everyone exemplified MUSTANG PRIDE! We faced the challenges together and now we’re stronger than ever. I’m extremely proud and grateful to be a part of this district. I wish everyone a great (and much needed) summer break! Erik Young Superintendent #MustangPride
