Mustang Toy Roundup is back!

For over 35 consecutive years, the players of the Munster football teams and other school clubs and groups have decided to help as many children as possible during the holiday season. Our goal is to put a smile on the face of as many children as possible by giving them a toy for the holidays. Last year we had a great response and were able to care for more than 500 families. We currently have a list of over 400 local children in the Hammond - Highland – Munster - Dyer area who probably will not receive a toy for the holidays. Our team is asking other teams, clubs, MRT groups, players, students, parents, friends and neighbors who are interested in helping those less fortunate to share their good fortune and holiday cheer with a needy child. Unfortunately, children don’t understand what unemployment, sickness or divorce have to do with toys and gifts for the holidays. We hope you and others will help put a smile on the face of another child as you and your family enjoys the holidays.

We are asking that interested parties send a new unwrapped toy valued at $10.00 or more. Our largest age group of children is between two and ten years of age. Those of you that would rather have a player or student shop for you may send a check made out to:

Munster Athletics - Toys and send it to:
Jason Grunewald or Leroy Marsh at Munster High School
8808 Columbia Ave., Munster, IN. 46321

 

Toys can also be given to a Munster football player or coach. Toys also can be dropped off at the Munster High School Athletic Office between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Students and players donating toys should give them to Coach Marsh, Coach Martin or Coach Kalwasinski at the High School or Coach Grunewald, Coach Gelarden or Coach Vance at Wilbur Wright. All toys must be collected no later than Wednesday, December 12th so that we may distribute the toys to the children. Elementary schools may call the MHS Athletic Dept. to arrange pick-up.

We truly thank you for your generosity and concern for others less fortunate. We believe that the joy that you bring to others by giving, far exceeds the feeling you get by receiving. We thank all of you that have helped us in the past and we wish you all the best in 2019. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Holiday Cheer to all.


District News
Welcome to the School Town of Munster!
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the School Town of Munster website.  As you visit each of our school pages and the district page, you will notice very quickly that our schools are recognized for their highly qualified staff and the high performance of our outstanding students.   Our schools have been honored for excellence at the state and national levels.   From an elementary school that is a National Blue Ribbon School to the high school that has an exemplary Advanced Placement program, our students are provided with numerous opportunities to grow, learn and find success in their academic careers in the School Town of Munster.   It is our belief that every student will be educated to develop a global view of our world, and the opportunities that they will have are limitless. 

The School Town of Munster provides many extracurricular opportunities for students to participate at an academic level and an athletic level.  We believe that students should develop leadership skills and be actively involved in our global community.  Students take part in many clubs offered at the high school and middle school.  We provide after school programs in music for our elementary students.  Our student athletes are highly competitive on the sporting fields, but more importantly, in the classroom.  It is our belief that students should be provided a well-rounded education that helps them cultivate their interests.

 I hope that you will check out our Munster Advantage comparison chart and use it when you are looking for a new school home and a new community to live.  I believe that the Munster schools are second to none when it comes to academic and extracurricular opportunities for our students.  I am also very proud to state that our community is one of the most supportive in the State of Indiana when it comes to its schools.  We have a strong group of community and parent volunteers who serve on the Munster Education Foundation, Booster Clubs, PTOs, and in the classrooms.  The support and commitment to have world class schools by our community, administration, teachers and staff sets Munster apart and above other schools.  We are very proud that our focus will always be on helping our students succeed by “Teaching Today for Tomorrow”.

Thank you for visiting the School Town of Munster.
