Take our feedback survey!

MRH MS Team Building Expedition

Student of the Week

 

Alice Hauf is our 7th-grade student of the week! Alice is incredibly helpful in class. She participates, encourages her groupmates to share and contribute, and helps them when they need it. She is inquisitive and asks thought-provoking questions that push the whole class forward. She has been excited to be in school and participate and brings energy and enthusiasm to our classrooms. 

?Thanks, Alice for all of your hard work and positive contributions!

 

Aleeya Keyes is our 8th-grade student of the week! Aleeya has started the year with a strong presence, demonstrating alertness and attentiveness during classroom learning. She has demonstrated leadership by setting a great example for her peers to take charge of her learning in this way. Keep up the great work, Aleeya!!!!

Weekly Learning

 

Literary scholars in Mrs. Tanner’s 8th grade Communication Arts classes are preparing to read S. E. Hinton’s classic novel, The Outsiders. Earlier in the week, students were assigned to two different groups and were tasked with completing a series of relay races.  For each race, one group was given a glaringly obvious advantage over the other group (such as different materials or different rules). Afterward, the class debriefed together, discussing how their group assignments affected their success in the race. When asked about how they felt after the race, many on the winning team shared feelings of elation, while others stated they didn’t feel good about the win because they recognized how unfair it was. Students on the losing team expressed that they felt the game was rigged and there was no reason for them to even try.  These discussions served to illustrate the advantages that some groups have over others in society and will help students make connections while reading the novel.

Peanut Butter Allergy

 

We wanted to inform you that we have students in our school that have life-threatening food allergies. One student has an allergy to Peanuts/Tree Nuts. These foods, even in trace amounts, may cause a severe reaction (anaphylaxis) that can lead to death. The following symptoms may occur: hives, difficulty breathing, vomiting and diarrhea, swelling of the lips, mouth, and throat, itching and sneezing, loss of consciousness, and death due to shock. Even touching contaminated surfaces may cause a reaction.

 

School staff has been trained to recognize such a reaction and to administer medication (epinephrine) in an emergency.

 

Here are a few suggestions for you as parents:

 

  • Never take food allergies lightly; they can be serious and life-threatening.
  • Look for substitutes for peanut butter and other snacks that contain peanuts. Our school cafe uses sunflower butter and kids do not mind at all.
  • Ask your child’s friends what they are allergic to and help them to avoid it.
  • Tell your child, “DO NOT SHARE FOOD.”
  • Frequent hand washing reduces the spread of viruses during the school year and helps protect food-allergic students. Wash hands thoroughly after eating. Similarly, encourage good hygiene before and after-school. If your child had peanut butter for breakfast please have them wash their hands. Wash hands and surfaces before handling textbooks, computers, or school equipment.
  • Tell your child to get help from an adult immediately if a schoolmate has a reaction.

Early Dismissal Procedures

 

  • Please call or email Mrs. Jonas before coming to pick your student up for any appointments or early dismissals. The more notice we have the better we can cut your wait time down.
  • Email: tonya.jonas@mrhschools.net, OR Call: 314-644-4406
  • Please remind your student that they must come to the middle school office to check out before leaving campus. Students will exit the building from the high school doors that face the track.

My Student is sick, what now?

 

Student Daily Needs

 

  • Fully charged Chromebook/charger
  • Refillable water bottle
  • Mask

 

Please help your student create great habits for remembering their mask, fully charged Chromebook and their water bottle. We will not have water bottles or cups for students to use.

MRHHS LATEST NEWS FOR YOU

We had a successful first week! The students were outstanding and it was great to be together again. I did want to ask students who drive to school, if they find that our lot is full, to please use our pool lot. We are attempting to avoid clogging the neighborhood streets around school to be good to our neighbors and to allow our construction vehicles a bit easier access to the space.
