Dear McGill Mustang Families,
A Huge Welcome Back to all of YOU!
I hope you enjoyed a wonderful and restful summer. I also hope you are relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new school year. We are so delighted that you are part of our amazing learning community. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your children.
All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted staff is already planning and preparing for your child(ren). Our enthusiastic office team is registering new families, ordering needed materials, and updating student files. Our hard working and conscientious custodians have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning and painting some of the school area. We indeed are a joyous and caring community with the common goals of nurturing responsible, caring students and promoting high-level learning.
Please help me also welcome our new Kinder Teacher Assistant, Frida Olea. We will also be introducing a new Special Education Teacher/Case Manager as time nears.
We have new Stage Curtains! We also have new PE/Sunrise To Sunset green turf where our children can feel safer participating in different outdoor activities. I encourage you to come and see it. We also purchased new desks for our special education department and other educational equipment for our Sunrise to Sunset program.
There weren’t many facility changes, but we do have several staff in different areas. Ms. Delia Ramires, Secretary and Michelle Blevins, Admin Assistant will be sharing an office in Room 26. Ms. Jennifer, our Math Coach, will be in Room 21.
Finally, we also gave a fresh coat of paint to some of the classrooms and deep cleaned each and every classroom. They look Amazing!!! Please help us keep our campus looking fabulous all year long.
If you are enrolled in the 6 to 6 or newly known as our Sunrise to Sunset before and after school program, you are welcome to bring your child to school at 6:15am through the front door of the school building. Please make sure that you sign them in.
