Winter Parties

Winter Party Day is nearing and your help is needed!  A snack, a simple craft, and game have been planned for your student's grade level -- all supplies have been purchased and will be ready to go. The hard work is done!!!  Now, we need your help to make sure that your child's class can enjoy this very fun afternoon.  We need a few volunteers (parents, grandparents, etc) from each classroom who can attend the party and make sure all these things run smoothly.  No planning necessary!  Just handing out supplies, helping the students, cleaning up, etc.  If you could be in your child's pod by 1:00 on Wednesday December 21st to help with distributing the supplies, we would love your help!  A list of instructions will be provided to help you know the party plan.

A huge thank you to Helen Petty  for planning this entire-school event!  Please email Helen at or Stacy Dick ( to let us know if you're available (along with your teacher's name) or if you have any questions.

THE MRHE WAY "Who We Are And What We Do"

This time of year is always busy as we gear up for many of the upcoming spring activities. We will host our annual Chili Cook-Off on Friday, March 6th.  This is a great opportunity for the MRHE community to come together for some fun. In addition, over the next few weeks we will hold Valentine Parties, host a spring exhibit opening, and participate in spring parent-teacher conferences. Please make sure you have these important dates marked on your calendar. You can also access these dates on our MRH ELEMENTARY website calendar at:

As we move through this second half of the school year, the staff of MRHE would greatly appreciate your support as we continue to model and reinforce The MRHE Way" for our students. As a reminder, "The MRHE Way" is a common language we use in school to discuss character and leadership. If you would like to use this language at home, here are the definitions we use at school: 


As always, we appreciate your never ending support of the work we do in preparing our students to be fully capable leaders, scholars, stewards, and citizens.

Continuing Our Work Together

Thank you for your active participation in our recent Parent-Teacher Conferences. It is always wonderful to see students, teachers, and their families in deep discussion about the student’s progress and continued learning. In addition, we thank you for completing the parent version of our School Climate Survey. We will use this information to determine next steps related to our school climate and we appreciate your honest feedback.

Over the next few weeks we will participate in the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP). The dates for the standardized test are included on the website, the school calendar, the Family Update, and this newsletter. Beyond MAP testing,there are many exciting events coming up. These include the spring exhibit opening for each of the grade levels. Our students look forward to sharing their hard work and creativity with each of you. May also brings about events such as the Awards Ceremony, the 6th Grade Promotion, and Field Day. Please continue to check the calendar for specific information about each of these events.

Your partnership is appreciated and we look forward to continuing our work together.

Focus on Setting Learning Goals

Happy New Year!

I hope that each of you enjoyed your Winter Break and time with family and friends. The next few months are what many refer to as “prime learning time”, where teachers and students can focus on setting learning goals for the remainder of the school year and strive to achieve each goal. It is very important that our students are present and on time for each school day. I know there are times when our students are sick or when things come up, but your child’s presence at school is key to their continued success. Thank you for partnering with us to ensure our students are present and on time each day.

As the principal of MRHE, I am continually considering the question, “What more can we do to support our students and families?” Over the past few months, I have been working closely with a nonprofit organization called A Place To Turn To in an effort to plan a series of parent learning sessions called Family Connections. I am pleased to share that MRHE and ECC will coordinate these learning sessions together in an effort to support as many families as possible. Please refer to the weekly “MRHE Family Update” for specific dates, times, and topics.

Over the next few months, I look forward to seeing each of you at the Pancake Breakfast, Chili Cook Off, concerts and other special events. Your partnership with our school is essential to our success. Thank you for your continued support.

Take care, stay warm, and see you
