Welcome back Mustangs!

Dear Mustang families,

We trust that your summer was fun building memories with family and friends.  Our first day for students will be on Wednesday, August 23rd.  We look forward to that day with much anticipation. Every new school year brings excitement and joy to families and teachers.

We have spent much of the summer preparing for this year.  Teachers have devoted time to various types of Professional Development.  We had a group go to Philadelphia to attend the AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) conference, the Buck Institute came to Charlottesville to work with another group on Project Based learning, several staff members hosted Maker Fairs, and all staff participated in Digital Learning initiatives that the county hosted.  

We will host our Fresh Start for incoming ninth graders starting this Wednesday, August 9th.  Open House is scheduled for Thursday, August 17th, 6:30-8:00pm.  Open House will allow you the opportunity to travel around school, visit various classrooms and have informal conversations with teachers and staff.  Computers will be handed out to students on the first day of classes. Our school’s mission statement: “We embrace students, we inspire learning and we innovate opportunities.”  

We look forward to a great year and seeing everyone on the 23rd.
