A Night At the Museum
Over the past few weeks many of you turned out to support the exhibit work our students created. According to the staff of the Gateway Arch, over 38,000 people experienced the MRHE exhibit on display during December and January. That’s incredible! Over 630 individuals came out for the “Evening at the Arch” and over 80 families came out for our exhibit opening at MRHE. We cannot thank you enough for your support of this important work. Wow!
In January I shared about the process our classroom teachers use to analyze data and make decisions about how they can support each student. A strong academic program is essential to every school. We continue to learn more and more about how to best teach skills for mathematics, reading, and writing.
At the same time, MRHE is committed to developing the whole child. Our teachers in specialty areas such as physical education/health, art, counseling, garden/sustainability, and music contribute so much to the overall development of our students. Our goal for our students is high academic achievement AND a strong foundation in social, emotional, and physical learning.
Recently I read an article from the Washington Post about ten skills our students learn from participation in the Arts. The author highlights the importance of providing our students with high quality experiences that enrich creativity, enhance collaboration, and prepare our students for a successful future in the 21st century. I am including this article with the February newsletter. Please take a moment to review the article. It really is eye opening!
Thank you again for your continued support of our school and our work to develop students who are prepared for any challenge they face in the future.
Respectfully, Jason Adams
