June 24 Update

Thank you and Good-bye!

Thank you Mustangs for an amazing four years! It has been a great privilege to have worked with everyone here, the staff, students and families have been incredible! I will always remember my time here as a gift! May summer bring many blessings to each of you! - Mrs. Marler :)

Thank you DCE students and families for the best three years! I am so lucky to have been here with you all. There are so many highlights, but I will remember teaching PE to many of you over the years and will definitely miss all the wonderful "Good mornings", smiles, and waves I receive daily while in the Drop Off Zone. Hopefully our paths cross again. Have a wonderful summer! - Mr. Howell :)  

At first, it was hard to make the decision to retire, but now it is pretty awesome that I only have 3 school days left in my career. I do leave with a sense of gratitude for the people I have been able to work with. The Mustang staff are the most dedicated, highly skilled, passionate, and caring people.  Thank you parents for your incredible support during the last four years! But most of all, I am grateful for the students who bring joy to our school every day! I hope you all have an amazing summer and I hope to see you out and about in the Park. - Mrs. Schindeler :)

Walk or Wheel Wednesday

Our final Walk or Wheel Wednesday was a huge success! Over 300 students participated in some way and we had one of our best turnouts ever at over 63% of students being active to or from school. It was such an amazing way to finish the year! Although the weather did not cooperate at the end of the day, thank you to all for their patience and for ensuring all students got home safely (and mostly dry).
