A Prayer As We Conclude

As we end the school year let us remember God is never far… God be in my head, and in my understanding; God be in my eyes, and in my looking; God be in my mouth; and in my speaking; God be in my heart; and in my thinking; God be at my end, and at my departing.

School’s Out for Summer!

These last weeks of the school year are interesting in that we are, at least administratively, living in two years - wrapping up the current one and looking forward to the next. Next week, we can fully shift our focus to 2019-2020.

 

Our teaching faculty and staff have worked so very hard on behalf of your students throughout the course of this year and I have been so proud to serve beside them. I am also hopeful get time away as well! They need it!

 

The front desk at school will be open from 8:00am - 12:00pm over the course of the summer. The administration will be hard at work preparing for the fall and many, many teachers will come in as well to get their classrooms and curriculum ready for next year. There will be physical improvements and cleaning and renovations done throughout the summer thanks to Mr. Fast and his wonderful staff.


We will also be welcoming some new teachers and staff, honing and refining the daily bell schedule, working on the Parent/Student Handbook and many other items over the next few months. We want to be the best school we can be for your students and will continue to work do do that!

 

Know that you and your students will be in my thoughts and my prayers this summer. I hope these months are full of family, fun and rest for you.

 

See you next fall!

 

 

 Looking Ahead to 2019-2020

This will be the last Mullen Weekly for the 2018-19 school year! We will resume again in early August! Look for a back to school mailer this July with important information regarding the next school year! School hours this summer will be Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m - Noon beginning June 3.

 

New Website Coming Soon!

We are excited to announce the launching of our new and redesigned website this June! Our website was designed to be a user-friendly resource, one-stop-shop for all the information you need to support your child on their educational journey at Mullen High School.

We worked with an award-winning designer from the website company Blackbaud and incorporated feedback we received from parents and staff members.

New features include:

  • A more user-friendly structure designed to help you easily find what you need. The new search section located in the gray bar on the home page includes our most requested topics.
  •  A more modern design that showcases photos of students and that’s easy to use on your computer, tablet and mobile phone.
  • A built-in tool that helps ensure that content on the website is accessible to everyone, including people with visual impairments or mobility issues.
  • More photos and ways to celebrate our greatest asset: our students.
  • More ways for parents to get involved. Visit the support section for volunteer opportunities or to submit an idea for a story in the news section.
  • An online school store with items for you, your family and your current/future Mustang.
  • We invite you to explore the new website and see what you can discover. If you encounter any issues or can't find information you are seeking, let us know! Send an email to info@mullenhigh.com We will get right on it. Also, please know that we are still working on the search feature and there may be temporary outages or broken links while ongoing “maintenance” is taking place on the new website during its first few days of use.

2019-2020 School Year - Student Schedules

Schedules for the 2019-20 school year will be available on NetClassroom, these are tentative and subject to change over the summer. Schedule repair requests must be submitted online by Thursday, May 30th, click here. Schedule repairs will be considered if they match the schedule repair criteria. Schedule repairs will be updated on NetClassroom by August 7th. Note: Your schedule was created based on your requests. 
 
One Book, One School 2019
In keeping with our annual book choice for the entire school to read over the summer, this year's choice is a compelling story about war, healing, and redemption. All students are asked to read A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Baeh and be prepared for a reading test on the first day of school. This true story of a boy captured as a child solder in Sierra Leone is a heartbreakingly accurate narrative of an issue of mass injustice and oppression. Despite his circumstances, Ishmael Baeh perseveres to tell his story. Please see the summer assignment sheet for any additional reading or work for Honors and AP English courses.
