Be Well, Do well

Listen carefully to this announcement – there are prizes involved! At the all-school assembly in September, Mrs. McDade’s message to you was “Be Well, Do well”. She challenged staff and students to set personal goals to ‘be well’ and ‘do well’ this school year. Now that it’s October, Mrs McDade is following up on the challenge. Visit the main office to enter a draw which will be during our October 30 assembly. To be eligible, you must include your name and your personal goal. Don’t worry, your goal won’t be shared with the whole world – just your name would be called to win a fabulous prize! Details and entry forms are in the office. One entry per student. Be well and do well, Mustangs!
