NEW: WINTER EXHIBIT OPENING - Thursday, December 13, 6pm - 8pm

Our Winter Exhibit Opening is scheduled for Thursday, December 13th from 6:00-8:00 p.m.  This will be a school-wide opening (all grades 3-6). The evening will be split into two shifts: Shift #1 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. and Shift #2 from 7:00-8:00 p.m.  Families may attend whenever they can between 6:00-8:00 p.m., however we encourage you to attend when your teacher is present.

MRH Parents as Teachers is continuing to enroll families in the program. PAT is a program that equips parents with knowledge and resources to prepare their children, from prenatal to kindergarten entry, for a stronger start in life and greater success in school. PAT is offered free of charge to families living in the MRH School District. Participants in PAT have access to yearly developmental screenings and referrals or resources as needed, receive monthly updates from our e-newsletter, can attend free monthly group connections and events, can request handouts on developmental topics, and may be able to arrange home visits with a PAT educator.

 

For more information or to enroll in the program, please email PAT Parent Educators Sara and Colleen at parentsasteachers@mrhschools.net or call 314-256-4562.

 

UPDATE: WOW Food Drive - ONE MORE WEEK!

We are at 46 boxes of food! 4 more boxes will get Mrs. Boyer up on the wall!  And of course our “Mystery Public Official” has volunteered to be duct taped to the wall if we make it to 60 boxes!  

KEEP IT COMING! We still have one more week to make our ultimate GOAL!



 

Parenting in the Digital World: You are invited to this free event from the Affton School District and Connected Learning.

The news is full of stories that seem to confirm parents’ worst fears that use of screens and other technologies is creating health and social problems for our children. At the same time, the use of these devices and programs are essential for learning in school, communicating with family and friends, and professional work for adults. How can parents navigate the constantly changing landscape of technology, games, and social media while maintaining a positive and consistent relationship with their children? This presentation – from a experienced educator, parent, and advocate for digital safety – will share both the research and the strategies parents can start using at home right away.

 

LOCATION: ROGERS MIDDLE SCHOOL 7550 MACKENZIE ROAD

Schnucks Giving Bag Fundraiser for MRH Middle School in November

 

 

MRH YOUTH SPORTS CALL FOR NOMINATIONS:

MRH Youth Sports Families –

 

It takes volunteers at all levels and of varying talents to run a youth sports organization of the complexity and magnitude that MRH Youth Sports has become.  It also takes a steady influx of new volunteers to fill our Board of Directors. As our children grow up and move on to high school sports or other activities, so do the parents that serve on the Board.

 

As some of our long-time Board members prepare for “retirement” and we work through their succession planning, we believe it’s a perfect opportunity to reach out to the MRH Youth Sports families for nominations to the Board.  We’d like to know who YOU feel would be good additions to the MRH Youth Sports Board. Board members are responsible for keeping the MRHYS machine moving forward and juggling a lot of responsibility. There are registration events to manage, financials to control, disputes to mediate and an endless negotiation for practice space and game schedules.  Yes, it’s every bit as glamourous and challenging as it sounds, but it is also one of the most rewarding volunteer opportunities I’ve had the honor to fill.

 

Consistency is important to maintaining a strong organization so we ask Board members to commit to two-year terms.  Most of our members serve much longer than that, but for the strength of the organization we are asking nominees to commit to two years initially.  Traditionally, we try to keep at least seven active Board members, although our Charter leaves us some flexibility that we may utilize to make for a smoother transitional period.

 

We will be accepting nominations for Board members from now until November 24th.  We will then contact nominees to attend a meeting in December for additional discussion around the roles and responsibilities of Board members.  Board members will be selected based on an interview process and voted on by the current Board members. We currently have eight active Board members and   there are two Board members retiring within the next 9 months. We will be making selections based on both short and longer-term needs. This is where the flexibility mentioned above would allow us to phase in additional members sooner (before the current members retire) and allow adequate time for knowledge transfer and training of new members.

 

If you have any questions or would like to nominate someone for a position on the Board, please do so via a response to this email or send a direct message to mrhyouthsports@gmail.com.  Nominations should include the name of the individual you are nominating, their contact information and a short note regarding why you think they would make a great Board member.  And because I know you are dying to ask – Yes, you can nominate yourself.

 

I look forward to hearing from you!

Peanut and Tree nut snack suggestion list

When choosing a peanut free snack for your child’s class, it is important to ALWAYS check the label on the package to make sure it is free of peanuts and nuts of all kinds. Click here for a list of ideas and information regarding peanut free alternatives.

And as always, all food items must be accompanied by a complete ingredients list and prescreened by Nurse Kathryn for any allergies or sensitivities.

 

Reporting a Student Absence:  If your child is going to be late or absent from school, please call the MRHE 24 hour Attendance Line at 256-7202 or email the Attendance Office at kris.ricks@mrhschools.net.  Please include the student’s name, grade and the reason for absence.  If your child is not in school, and we have not received verification of the absence from an adult guardian we will attempt to reach you by phone at the home number on file in the office.

 

Friendly Reminder: Visitors to MRH buildings should ring the doorbell and be prepared to explain the reason for their visit. When entering the building, please sign in and pick up a Visitor’s Pass in the Main Office before moving past the Atrium.
