Hello Mustangs! My name is Jaclyn Nazarian and it is my pleasure to serve as the Mount Vernon Parents Association's Mustang Athletic Club (formerly Booster) President again this year. I have served the Mustang Athletic Club for the past four years. My husband, Josh, and I have two kids at Mount Vernon. Sam is in high school and plays football, basketball, lacrosse, and running track. Brooke is in seventh grade and plays volleyball, basketball, tennis, and soccer. They are both excited to be back at school (masked and at an appropriate distance of course!)
We had a great start in athletics last year with 80% of the Upper and Middle School students participating in athletics. I know we were all disappointed to see the spring seasons cut short but the Mustang Athletic Club is hopeful and excited for this new year of Mustang Athletics. With your generous support last year, we were able to assist the Athletic Department in upgrading the baseball/softball batting cage with a roof and electricity.
Just like most things these days, the Mustang Athletic Club will look a little different this year. To make it easier on our Mount Vernon families, Mustang Athletic Club is waving all membership fees for the 20/21 school year. We are asking our community to make a tax-deductible donation of any amount to support Athletics through the Mustang Athletic Club (formerly Booster).
While attendance at games is open on a limited basis, there are a few additional updates I would like to share with you. We will not be charging Mount Vernon Families admission to games and we will not have concessions this year. In the past, the Mustang Athletic Club has hosted several events throughout the year including the Annual Football BBQ, Neon Night, Coaches Holiday party, Spring Sports Day and the end of the year Coaches Appreciation Party. We are sad that we won’t be hosting these events this year but we look forward to a time when social distancing is a thing of the past.
We have an amazing athletic program and your support will help our programs for years to come. We look forward to keeping you up-to-date on all of our student-athletes and athletic programs via email. We want to stay connected to our athletes, coaches, and families!
Thank you for your support!
2020-2021 Mustang Athletic Club President
