News & Notes:

 

TRIVIA NIGHT!

Triva night was a huge success once again! Thank you to everyone who volunteered in the planning stages as well as that night! Thanks to everyone that donated items to our raffle and wine pull amongst everything else! We hope everyone had as great of a time as we did!

 

The MRH PTO Spirit Wear store is live! Make sure to order the newest T-shirt design! Check it out here: Spiritwear Store

 

Save the Date for the 1st grade concert on Wednesday! The PTO hosts a bake sale during and after the concert! Make sure to stop by for a sweet treat on the way in or out! We are still looking for BAKERS and volunteers at the concert. Email us at: ecc-secretary@mrhpto.org Or sign-up here!

 

WINTER BOOK SHOP IS COMING!  

 

The winter book shop takes place on December 18th and 19th. ECC Students get to come to our "shop" and pick out their very own book free of charge to take home at winter break. We want to make this a fun and magical experience so we need YOU! Help is needed to craft decorations (can be done at home) as well as shopkeepers and book readers during the shop event. Go to the event sign up here

Dear 1st grade families:

 

We are deep into preparations for our first grade vocal concert! We had such an extraordinary time last spring, and we are really looking forward to our next performance opportunity. This is just to remind you that the concert is scheduled for Wednesday, December 4th, at 7 pm, in the high school theatre.

Like last year, your child needs to arrive no later than 6:40 p.m. Doors to the theater will open by 6:25. As children arrive, they will line up with their teachers in the theater and Mr. Pentecost will begin warming up the students at 6:40 p.m. There will be more notes coming with more details as we get closer, but I wanted to make sure everyone had this date and time set aside if they hadn’t done so already. In the meantime, ask your child to give you some preview performances at home. You will be impressed, I’m sure!

MRH VOLUNTEER PROTOCOL; 2019 CHANGES

Maplewood Richmond Heights

Early Childhood Center

Important Update:

November 19, 2019

Dear ECC Parents,

At MRH, we know that the support of our community and families is vital to our success. We believe that the diversity of our MRH family is an invaluable asset to our students’ educational environment. Student safety is also a priority. Individuals working directly with students undergo rigorous background checks. 

Recently, House Bill 604 was passed, requiring all unpaid volunteers who may be alone with students to undergo a fingerprint background check and a family care registry check. Individuals who may have had a prior background check which did not include fingerprints, will now have to pass the new checks in order to be considered an MRH volunteer. Forms are available from the building principals. Completed forms will be sent to the Human Resources department for processing. Human resources staff will provide an FBI release statement and a coupon code that will allow volunteers to complete all required background checks at the district’s expense. While these forms may initially be returned to the ECC office, my staff and I will not see any information that results from the background check. Only our human resources department staff will have access to the outcome of the volunteer background checks and will personally reach out to the individual with the results.

Regards,

Cynthia J. Hebenstreit, PhD

Principal

Thank you for all the pumpkins! 

We have room for more if you don't have a compost pile at home. K-2 students have studied composting in depth with our Seed-to-Table intern Jaci Woods and started a cafeteria composting program. Students expressed interest in composting at home, so Jaci wrote this useful guide to help you get started.

 Please contact Chef Marino if you have any questions.
