Hi All! Hope you have had a wonderful February Break and are coming back refreshed to finish your Winter Trimester in a strong fashion!

As we restart school this Monday, February 24th let me both congratulate several members of "Mustang Nation" for their efforts at representing our school and themselves with distinction over the last week along with reminding everyone of some topics I discussed with you before the break.

CONGRATULATIONS GO TO:
- Our Girl's Varsity Swim Team, which finished 7th at the state meet and won the Class A Sportsmanship Award!

- Our Varsity Wrestling Team earned the Class A Runner-up Plaque at the state meet! Three Mustangs won individual state championships: Tyler Everett, Mike Risti and Jordan Drain!

- Our Varsity Cheerleaders earned 2nd Place at the Scarborough Invitational! The best I have seen them look in years!

- Our Boy's Varsity Swim Team, finished 4th at the state meet!

We are very proud of your efforts! Way to go "Mustang Nation!"

IMPORTANT REMINDERS:

- If you know of a fellow student needing some kind of support because of social-emotional and/or academic difficulties please let an adult at MHS know, so we can try and help! Thanks!

- Please don't forget the 10-Day Work Completion expectations. You have ten days to revise work passed back to have the opportunity to earn a 3 or better. Don't lose out on this option!

- Respect of each other starts with actions and words! As discussed previously we have seen a reduction in the proper use of language in our hallways recently. Proper language is important in the world of work and at MHS! We need to improve our use of respectful language immediately!

- Cell phones are interrupting learning! Over two years ago we discussed how important it is to trust our students in making positive decisions. One step we took was in allowing cell phone use in-between classes and at lunch. Unfortunately, several students are taking advantage of this trust and are using them in class, in bathrooms and in hallways during class time. Cell phones are NOT to be out during class time, unless you have teacher permission for an academic pursuit. Cell phones found out during class, in hallways etc. are to be confiscated with a 1-hour detention assigned!

- Lastly, campus cleanliness is all of OUR responsibility! We all need to do a better job of making sure the rubbish we create is thrown in trash containers around our school! Everyone's help is very much appreciated!

Welcome back!

My best,

Christian Elkington
