MRHE MUSEUM MEMO June 7-10 Hello!

MRHE MUSEUM MEMO

June 7-10

Hello!

 

Here we are! We've made it to the final week of this school year. What a year it has been. Before diving into the news for this final week, I want to thank the PTO for organizing such a community-oriented event on Friday. It was SO wonderful to see so many of you in the community, enjoying snow cones...AND EACH OTHER!

 

We have kept our eye on the ever-changing Missouri forecast this past week, in anticipation for Field Day this upcoming week. We are going to hold our festivities on Wednesday, June 9th. Please send your child(ren) dressed for outdoor play and with their water bottles!

 

Please stay tuned this summer to emails and social media for news from us! We will be sending grades, next year's class placements, and construction updates!

 

As a reminder, Thursday, June 10th is our last day of school.

 

I look forward to hearing all about your summer events from your children in August!

MRH VACCINATION CLINICS

 

We had strong participation in the first of our two different vaccination clinics. The district is partnering in vaccination events to ensure our entire community has access to the COVID-19 vaccination.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Looking ahead: in partnership with Richmond Heights Fire Department, MRH is hosting a COMMUNITY-WIDE clinic on June 12th at MRH High School. See MRH District Resources for more information.

TIME TO RETURN LIBRARY BOOKS AND TECHNOLOGY

We wanted to remind parents that all MRH issued laptops, chargers, cases and hotspots will be due at the end of the school year so that we may update software and make any repairs. We will also collect any special accommodation devices that you may have.

 

If you have any outstanding tech fees these are also due. Lost and damaged chargers are $10.00 for the first occurrence, damaged laptop screens, 25.00. Checks can be made payable to Maplewood Richmond Heights School District.

 

It is time to begin searching for any library books in the classroom. Check your shelves, your backpacks, under your bed, or wherever your library books may be. There will be no more check-outs this year, and all books are due to the library by Wednesday, June 2. You may return your library books anytime at the library circulation desk, or in one of the blue tubs located in the library hallway and Glades Entrance. Thank you!

READING AND MATH

As we wrap up this uniquely beautiful school year, we want to thank you for all of the ways you supported your student with learning at home! Together we did it, and together we will keep moving forward!  

 

Encouraging your student to continue reading & thinking like a mathematician this summer has many POSITIVE effects! Thank you to everyone who joined us for Parent/Caregiver Night last week to learn ways to make this happen. Abbreviated slides are available below to guide you or your student with ways to practice & what to focus on this summer.  

 

Parent/Caregiver Night SLIDES

 

Please reach out to us for additional questions & brainstorming, and most of all, THANK YOU!!

 

Happy Summer!

MRHE Virtual Exhibit, 2021

Dear MRHE Families,

 

It fills me with great pride to share our 2021 virtual exhibit with you. As you know, our School as a Museum metaphor and annual exhibits are an opportunity for our students to put their learning on display, to show how they've grown, and to have time to explore what excites them. We knew we needed a unique plan for this year's exhibit, and we knew we wanted to give our students an opportunity to reflect, express, and create as they processed all that came their way this school year.

 

Our students, staff, families, and community have grown and accomplished so much this year. We are confident you will see that as you explore our 2021 MRHE Virtual Exhibit.

 

Thank you for learning alongside us this year. Enjoy the experience!

MRHE Virtual Exhibit

In Partnership,

 

Dr. Angela Thompson

MRHE MUSEUM MEMO

June 1-4

Hello!

 

The mild weather this long weekend certainly helped us enjoy the outdoors. We have many campus events coming up in the next 8 school days--let's hope this weather holds!

 

We are looking forward to starting our end of year celebrations on Friday this week with a PTO-sponsored Movie and Snow Cone event. We will see you in the neighborhood nearest you!

 

We'll communicate next weekend to let you know which day seems like the best weather day for Field Day next week (it will be Tuesday the 8th or Wednesday the 9th). Then, our last day of school is on Thursday, June 10th.

 

As a reminder, our end of year on-campus activities (6th grade picnic and promotion, field day, last day celebrations, etc.) are not open to the public at this time.

MRHE MUSEUM MEMO

May 24-28

Hello!

 

Today felt a bit more like summer. The gorgeous weather has us planning our upcoming family and summer activities. 13 days!

 

Our on campus learners did a great job with their MAP testing the last two weeks. It has been so special to see our PLP learners (in person!) at MRHE as well.

 

As always, we welcome your feedback about our school and district. Please complete this family survey for each building your family is a part of. Students and staff are invited to do a similar survey. When we know areas for celebration and improvement, we're able to better serve our entire school community. So, thank you in advance, for taking the time to support MRHE.

READING WITH MRS. MUELLER

 

As we enter the end of May, classroom teachers are working to assess the amazing growth students have made this year. One way we measure this growth is by giving the Fountas and Pinnell Benchmark Assessment (F&P). During this reading assessment, students read a leveled text to teachers. We take note of their accuracy (how many words correct), fluency (how quickly students read, their expression, appropriate pausing, etc.), and self-corrections (if students make a mistake, do they fix it or just keep reading). When students are done reading, we ask some comprehension questions about the book. These questions vary from text to text but give us information on how well students can recall what they’ve read and if they can provide a summary of a text. We also ask questions that require students to infer and/or draw conclusions, make connections, and analyze the choices an author makes. We take the accuracy and the comprehension scores and are able to determine a student’s reading level (A-Z). Reading levels are just one tool we use to assess readers. Please know that if a child is reading at a level S, that doesn’t mean they should only be reading “S” books. It can be used as a guide so we/you can monitor that they aren’t only reading books leveled at an M or aren’t only reading level Z books. It also gives us an idea of what we typically see in books at or around students’ levels. For example, if we find a student is at a level S, that lets us know that they could/should be reading books that are straightforward, but still have more elaborate plots and many complex characters who change over time. 

 

 

You can google many book levels, or use a website like book wizard to help your child pick out some good books to read this summer.
