A Mustang Round-Up of the “easy” part of 4th quarter!
Hello and happy DAY OF CARING! Your WDS kids are hard at work today giving back to the community that has raised them into the awesome folks they are. Here’s a round up of everything from mid-WACKO week ’till now.

FULL OF SPIRIT: CHS Cheer, lead by Tori Metzger, competed in the state championships in March.
CLASS OF 2026: Upcoming freshmen visited Chugiak in early April to learn more about classes and the building. Shout out to the counseling team and Claire Torbensen (who is a current Mirror Lake Counseling Intern in all her free time) for making this day positive and smooth for everyone!

WDS CARE BEARS: World Discovery Seminar celebrated their annual Day of Caring on Tuesday, April 26 with a series of opportunities to give back. Breakout groups included making fry bread and spring roll salads for teachers, washing cars, staining benches, gardening in the community garden, making graduation hats for Seniors (you’ll see more next week), grab-and-go birthday bags, blankets for Covenant House, inspiring chalk messages and locker signs, and more.
TOO BIG TUESDAY: This is the only photo we have so far for Too-Big Tuesday, but we think it says it all. Remaining spirit days are:
Wednsday: Camo vs. Corporate (hunting gear or business attire)
Thursday: You Don’t Even Go Here (wear shirts for another school)
Friday: Rising Class Day (Freshmen wear yellow, sophomores green, juniors blue, and seniors wear a shirt that represents their college or career plans or their favorite chugiak wear)
Teachers could join the seniors and wear a t-shirt from college or just go crazy with the mustang gear!
