"Hi All!

Special thanks - Goes to each and every student-athlete who is representing MHS this fall! We thank you for your efforts and appreciate your willingness to represent "Mustang Nation" on playing fields, both home and away! If the sportsmanship and determination I have already been able to witness tells me anything, it tells me we will again be proud to have each of our teams and student-athletes representing MHS this fall!

Our "Meet & Greet" - Open house last night appeared to go extremely well! Preliminary observations shared by many teachers is that between two and three times as many parents & guardians came last night as last year. A BIG thank you goes to all who were able to attend.

A few iPad FYI's:

- Our iPad rollout, unfortunately, took a bit longer than anticipated. This Monday we will give Sophomores their iPads starting at 8:30 and we will then give Vocational Students theirs starting at 10:40.
- The protective cases on the iPads will surely not start a new fashion craze, as several of our students have shared that the colors look pre-schoolish. In our effort to support a stronger "Mustang Nation" culture, we may have missed the boat on the color-scheme. The point of these protective devices is to limit damage, not to start a new line of product sales at Kohls. The colors do not take away from the protective qualities of the device and so we will all need to live with them.
- We didn't want the case, why is it on there? The district technology dept decided to give every family an opportunity to use the protective device for the weekend and into early next week, so as to see it's advantages. If by the middle of next week your family still does not want to purchase this protective device it will be taken off by us. We ask that the protective device stay on until WE take it off next week. Thanks very much!

- Project Graduation Flower Sale update. Flower orders can still be dropped off at the MHS Main Office this coming Monday, 9/15/14. You can also drop off orders in the concession stand at tonight's football game.Pickup next week will be at the Massabesic East Gym 9/19/14 from 6:30-7:30 PM and then on Saturday 9/20/14 from 9:30-11:00 AM. Thank you for your support of this fundraiser!
