Mustang Memo - 8/19/22

Happy Friday Mustangs~

I hope this message finds you well as we count down the days to the start of the 2022-23 school year. Class placement letters were mailed today.  Please know that all our teachers at Moorlands are fabulous and class placements are carefully considered in a multistep process that includes input from your child’s previous teacher.  

This weekend is our annual Community Serve.  Please join us from 9-1pm at Moorlands to help beautify our school grounds and support teachers in setting up for the year.  There will be church service on Sunday; therefore please park in the parking lots at Moorlands, along the street, or walk if you are close enough.  

Don’t forget to join Moorlands PTA at  If you were a member last year, you'll need to RENEW your membership each year. The cost is $20 for the first adult (i.e. Parent/Guardian #1) and $10 for additional adults (i.e. spouse, grandparents, etc.)  Your PTA membership funds classroom grants, school events like assemblies, field trips, PE Equipment, online subscriptions, and fun community events. You can volunteer as a member of PTA, but volunteering is not required!  If the cost of membership is a hardship for your family, we have scholarships!  Please contact us at to request financial assistance.

Please take a look at the dates to remember section below and mark your calendars for all the upcoming events!  

Until next week, 
Meghan Griffin, Principal (
LaTisha Joseph, Assistant Principal (

Northshore Schools Foundation Backpack & School Supplies

The Northshore Schools Foundation is here to help you! If you are experiencing financial limitations, the Foundation would like to provide your Northshore student with a backpack and school supply kit for the 2022-2023 school year. 

The school supplies will be for use while your student is studying at home, these supplies are not intended to be shared in the classroom environment. If your school has additional requests for supplies, those items are what you should use your resources to purchase.

Backpacks and supply kits will be available for pick-up at our distribution event held on August 27 at Pop Keeney. If you provide us with an email, we will update you when the details become available. Backpacks will be available for pick up at your designated school. (These backpacks are for students that have NOT received a backpack from their school or the Foundation in the last 18 months. Thank you for your understanding.)

At this time we are only able to provide backpacks and school supply kits to students enrolled in the Northshore School District, and enrollment will be verified. If you have more than 5 students to register, please complete an additional entry.
