Latest MRHE News

NEW: Change to Evening Elementary Concert Location

Based on community feedback, we are changing the location of the evening MRH Elementary Concerts.

 

For all grades (3rd - 6th) the evening concerts will now be held at the MRH High School/Middle School Theater from 6:00-7:00pm. This move will allow for more parking and seating for each concert.

 

The practice concerts that are held the morning of the evening concert will still be held in the Gym at MRH Elementary School.

NEW: MRHE & MRH MS Parent University Session #2

Our first session was a great success and we look forward to the next session!

 

Details are below...

 

Topic: Restorative Practices

 

Presenter: John Converse - Director of Restorative Practices @ Education Plus - St. Louis

 

Date and Time: Thursday, November 14th -- 6:00-7:00pm

 

Location: MRH Middle School

 

Bring a friend!

NEW: When should you keep your child home from school? It's not always easy (and sometimes downright difficult!) to tell whether your child's symptoms warrant keeping them home from school. Students developing a fever or experiencing vomiting or diarrhea at school cannot function effectively, and parents will be contacted to take the child home. 

Student Illness Guidelines can be found in the MRH Elementary Family Handbook on pages 19 through 21. Please refer to the handbook or contact Nurse Kathryn (kathryn.whitehouse@mrhschools.net) if you have any questions or concerns.

 

REMINDER: Book Fair - Coming Soon to MRHE

 

REMINDER: October 31 Fall Party Guidelines   

Fall parties will be held on Thursday, October 31 from 1:15 to 2:15pm.**

The MRHE PTO will coordinate and host consistent parties for all grade levels and will include a snack, drink, and activity. 

 

Parents are welcome to attend. Please read through the following guidelines to ensure a great party for everyone!

?? PTO will provide the snacks and drinks. Please do not send in additional treats due to allergy concerns throughout the building.

 

?? Costumes are not required. Your child may choose to bring in a simple costume that can be quickly put on over clothing for the party time. Please no weapons, masks, hair paint or makeup. Students should not come to school wearing costumes.

 

?? Let your child’s teacher know if you prefer them to join the alternate activity instead of their classroom party.  This option will be provided by our principals.

 

**Please note: Students leaving school early after a room party must be signed out from the main office. Leaving school early will reflect on student attendance record.
