PARENT UNIVERSITY: Visual Supports
 Visual Support Poster
 

A special training has been set for parents of children with or without special needs ages 3-6. The training will cover a variety of visual supports for use in the home including: addressing challenging behavior, positive reinforcement, teaching appropriate behavior and communication. Parents will leave the meeting with knowledge on how to use visual supports in their home.  They will also have the opportunity to take home visual supports. 

Julie Atwood, behavior specialist for Mustang Public Schools, said three districts have joined forces for the event. 

“It's been a great way to combine our expertise and provide help for a much larger group of parents,” Atwood said. 

Mustang Public Schools joined forces with Moore to share behavior strategies with parents. Last year, the behavior specialist from Yukon Public Schools joined them and they provided four Parent University trainings. This year, the three districts will do the same. Trainings will be on Oct. 23 in Moore, Nov. 27 and Jan. 22 at Mustang and the final training will be on March 26 in Yukon. 

Although the training is geared toward parents of children between 3 and 6 years of age, the information would be appropriate for anyone with a child in elementary school. Atwood said all are welcome.

Smicklas gives $7,500 to school foundation

Smicklas Chevrolet donated $7,500 to the Mustang Public Schools Foundation last week. Russ Myers, vice president of the MPSF, said the donation will greatly increase the foundation’s ability to provide grants for teachers. 

“The foundation exists to support and enhance what our teachers can do in the classroom,” he said. “This is done primarily through grants given to teachers who have a creative project in mind that goes above and beyond the normal curriculum provided by the district. We cannot say thank you enough to Smicklas Chevrolet for this donation. It will make a difference in the lives of hundreds of students.” 

Grant applications are due by Oct. 31and are available on the foundation’s website. 

Parents should be on the lookout in November for a “Bucks for Broncos” campaign envelope to come home with their student. 

Donations to the Mustang Public Schools Foundation are tax deductible. Anyone who would like to support the foundation can stop by their website to donate as well: https://www.mustangpsfoundation.org

The Mustang Board of Education approved the hire of Jennifer Newell to fill the new position of Director of School Safety and Security. Newell, a retired officer for the Norman Police Department, has nearly five years as the program manager for the Oklahoma School Security Institute through the Office of Homeland Security. 

Interim Superintendent Charles Bradley is thrilled with the board’s decision. 

“Many members of leadership with Mustang Schools have had the privilege of working with Jennifer. She has been a voice of expertise for our district for several years,” Bradley said. “Her background and connections are going to take Mustang to the next level in providing safe, secure environments for our students.” Newell has been a trainer statewide for developing emergency operations plans for K-12 schools, managing risk at athletics and after school activities, crisis team training with the Oklahoma State Department of Education, school response to an armed assailant, bus operator safety and more.
