Principals Message

This upcoming month is a critical time for your child’s learning.  We are making the final push toward end of the year assessments and every instructional minute and activity are important.  Making up work does not come close to receiving classroom instruction.  So, we need students here daily.  I hope after our parent teacher conferences, we all have a clearer focus, greater resolve, and a sense of urgency about making sure students are equipped for “Success at the Next Level” at the end of the year.  TOGETHER we can create a great future of career options for your child.  This is an experiment to see how many parents read the newsletter.  Any parent who emails gro.2dscl@nielkek by Wednesday, March 17 will have their child entered in a drawing.

Sixth grade skiing has been AMAZING this year.  Between great snow at White Pine in Pinedale, quality instruction, and two trips to the mountain, many of our students went from crashes waiting to happen to slalom machines.  It was so good for students to see they could overcome their fears and enjoy the ski slope with friends.

February Mustang Mentors

Mustang Mentors are students selected by their teachers for demonstrating strength in one or all of our 8 Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Skills:  Name It to Tame It, Body Awareness, Focused Attention, Self-Awareness, Golden Rule, Growth Mindset, Mindfulness, & Leadership.  


Mustang Mentors are announced once a month at our Mustang School Spirit Day and will be honored for a month.  Mentors will be featured in videos made by our student council and their photos will be posted on the Mustang Mentor Wall.  If you would like more information about each of our 8 skills, please email gro.2dscl@nosamtrukba.

Etna Elementary School Musical

The students at Etna Elementary have been working hard on an updated, unique, video version of the school play this year.  HONK! Jr. will be presented via shared video link in May.  Thank you to all of the hardworking cast and our generous community partners for making this a possibility!

We would like to thank Bob Choma for creating our sledding hills. He brought the fun to our backyard! We appreciate all his time and effort.
