There will be a Homecoming pep rally today during 3rd period. The Homecoming maids and their escorts will be presented to the school, as we get pumped up for the games on Friday. All Homecoming maids/escorts will need to check in with their 2nd period classes, and then head to the gym for practice before the pep rally.


Students and Parents:  The yearbook staff needs your help!  This year during pre-homecoming activities, the yearbook staff will be taking some select snapshots that we would like to keep secret until the yearbooks arrive.  This will not be all of the snapshots, just a few.  We will have a sign that says “Closed Session” and are asking that no other photos be taken of our setup during these closed sessions.  Thank you for your cooperation in helping us out!


Students, the Student Council is working on some Homecoming decorations in the Activity Building. DO NOT TOUCH any of the props.


Everyone make plans to attend the Homecoming Dance Friday night from 8:00 pm to 11:00 pm in the Activity Building.   Admission is $5.00 per person.  If you plan to bring a guest from another school, you must sign the guest sheet in the office.


The 2015 Homecoming will be Friday, November 20, and that means that this week is SPIRIT WEEK! Each day will be a themed dress-up day. All students are encouraged to participate and to show their Mustang spirit.

The themes for the week are as follows:

Today: Twin Day (Dress like your best friend.)

Friday: Flashback Friday (Flashback to the 80's!)


The Student Council is hosting a class banner competition for Spirit Week. The Student Council representatives for each grade will lead their class in making a Spirit Week banner to be placed in the gym for the Homecoming games on Friday. The banners need to be handmade and should clearly display Mustang pride. All classes (7-12) need to have their banner ready by this morning, so they can be judged at the pep rally. Students, please see your grade's Student Council representatives for more information.


Homecoming Maids & Escorts: Just a reminder that Jr. Maids and their escorts should be at the gym and ready for pictures at 2:30 and Sr. Maids and their escorts should be ready for pictures at 3:30 the day of homecoming.

Midland EAST is sponsoring a Community Food Drive as a project for November.  We will be collecting non-perishable food items through November 20th.  There will be a competition between grades 7-12.  We will have boxes set up in the front hallway to make your contributions.  We are asking for all types of non-perishable food items to help families in need in our community.  The class that donates the most food items will be rewarded with an ice-cream party.  Help us fill the boxes and make a difference in our community.

Students, New competition has joined the EAST Food Drive race !!!!!  There will be a new box placed in the Hall today for Faculty and Staff.

Thought for the day:  Life is like a camera….. you focus on what’s important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives and if things don’t work out take another shot.
