Dear Parents of Future Mustangs:
It is already time to begin making preparations for the arrival of a new group of seventh graders in August.  The move from elementary school to Junior High is exciting, and we hope to provide a smooth transition.  You are invited to attend 6th Grade Parent Night, Tuesday, February 16, 2016.  This evening is designed to provide parents with some insight into the Junior High setting and answer any questions you may have on a variety of topics.
Representatives from the school administration, faculty, and student body will be on hand for the program that will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. and end around 7:30 p.m.  Please note that this program is intended for parents and seating is limited.  Our Counselor will be visiting each of our elementary feeder schools during the last week of February.  All sixth grade students will participate in orientation at Mesquite Junior High in early May.  You will receive more information about orientation from your elementary school.
The program on Tuesday, February 16th will begin in the Auditorium where you will be welcomed and given an overview of the evening.  Our Counselor will provide information on the registration and transition process.  From there, half of the audience will be excused to the Library and Cafeteria to receive information on the academic core subjects (Library) and elective offering (Cafeteria).  An announcement will be made indicating when the groups will trade places.
We look forward to working with you to ensure that all students experience success at Mesquite Junior High School.  We will see you on February 16, 2016 at 6:00 p.m.
Dan Johnson, Principal
