    The students have been learning about Fire Safety this week and originally we had planned to have Fire Trucks from the Lake Johanna Fire Department on site October 10th for educational presentation.  This has been rescheduled for Wednesday, October 17th due to the weather.

    Future Mustang T-shirts are being sent home with all students today!  Please have your child wear their shirt on Wednesday, October 17 for our Future Mustang Spirit Day. For the remainder of the school year students are invited to wear their Future Mustang T-shirt every Friday (unless a different school spirit theme is planned).

    T-shirts are provided to all students, with the support of donations from our families.  If you have not had a chance to make a donation and would like to you may still do so.

    If you have not turned in your student's immunization records, please do so to the health office as soon as possible so they can update their records.  They can be faxed to 651-621-8005 or emailed to marilee.mossberg-ardito@moundsviewschools.org.
