Spirit of the Mustang Recipient - Mailani Ovard

Spirit of the Mustang

You all exude the Spirit of the Mustang on a daily basis. I’m constantly impressed and awed by the dedication and determination of Mapleton Jr. High Teachers and staff. Moreover, you are all so delightful to work with, and I’m truly privileged to work here.

The person I’ve selected this month is passionate and invested in student learning. This teacher pays close attention to student needs and facilitates communication between parents, teachers, administration, and students to create positive experiences for young people who are often experiencing an even more thrilling Jr. High rollercoaster ride than most.

Mailani is a master at dealing with the mountains of paperwork that Special Educators face, and does so with grace and humor. However, even more important than her Ninja paperwork skills, Mailani is dedicated to the population of students we work with every day. From sitting with reluctant students one on one to washing and mending student clothes when the situation call for it, Mailani is invested in the success and happiness of students who may not see their own potential. She always sees the big picture and is bothered about what might happen later on in life when she can’t watch out for these amazing students.  She constantly teaches students the value of kindness, respect, hard work and resiliency and is a great role model for our incredible students.

Additionally, Mailani has been one of my great teachers in life. Her determination to show up and give her best effort on tough days is inspiring to me as is her passion for student success. When she needs to take a day off, she is always aware of the load others are taking on to support the absence, but never hesitates to take other’s classes, check in with our substitutes, and watch over students. Working on the SpEd team with Mailani Ovard  is a great honor. Thanks Mailani for  demonstrating Mustang Spirit  every day.

Over the past weekend we celbrated Veteran's Day. On Monday morning, Salem Elementary students paid tribute to our Veterans in a Veteran's Day Assembly.  During the assembly Veterans introduced themselves adn told us when and where they have served.  We also watched a short video clip which informed students of the meaning behind the Star Spangled Banner, what the words really mean, and then we all stood together to sing it. We thank our veterans for the sacrifices they made so that we may enjoy our freedom each and every day.

Dear Parents,

It is Book Fair week! I always look forward to the Book Fair. Students are so excited to shop for affordable books, fun posters, and other educational products. I love it when students stop me in the hall to show me the book they got at the Book Fair. The Book Fair is open everyday this week from 8:30-3:30 and is located on the stage. It is a perfect time for you to come and do some early Christmas shopping. Thank you to our PTA for helping us bring the Book Fair to Brookside.

Reading to your children is so important as explained in this quote from the Washington Post article, “Why It’s Important to Read Aloud to Your Kids and How to Make It Count”. Amy Joyce wrote, “One of the most important things parents can do, beyond keeping kids healthy and safe, is to read with them. That means starting when they are newborns and not even able to talk, and continuing well beyond the years that they can read by themselves. Study after study shows that early reading with children helps them learn to speak, interact, bond with parents and read early themselves, and reading with kids who already know how to read helps them feel close to caretakers, understand the world around them and be empathetic citizens of the world.”

Thank you! Have a great week!
