September 4, 2020 – Dr. Clark Email

Happy Friday MOSAIC Families,

We have come to the end of our first full week of school. Although it is not the same as being in person, I have enjoyed conversing with students in GoogleMeets. Students have also enjoyed seeing their friends once again.

I have a lot of information to share this week. Please be sure to take time to read the email and all its details. Please reach out to me at 314-467-7901 or sclark@msdr9.org if you have any questions.  

To ensure that your child’s experience in GoogleMeet and Virtual Learning is the best as possible, please be sure that your child does not have his or her phone, tablet, toy or gaming device other than their chromebook when on a GoogleMeet. These devices will only cause a distraction to their learning. Thank you for your assistance!

MOSAIC Staff and Student Recognition

Even in these challenging of times, there are many great things happening at MOSAIC and at home with students involved in virtual learning. I want to recognize students, staff and families who are demonstrating the MOSAIC Mindset and doing the right thing. Below is a form for families to fill out to recognize the good work of a MOSAIC staff member, student and/or a MOSAIC family. I will share these recognitions on my daily morning announcements. Let’s hear about all the wonderful things happening!

Supply Pick-Up

Similar to our Chromebook and supply pick-up in August, MOSAIC will begin hosting bi-weekly supply pick-ups providing an opportunity for teachers to get a variety of learning materials to our students. Supply pick-up will occur bi-weekly on Tuesday mornings from 8am-9am and Tuesday afternoons from 3pm-4pm. The first supply pick-up will be on Tuesday, September 15th.  Following supply pick-up dates include September 29th, October 13th and October 27th. Kindergarten will have their first pick up on Friday, September 11th, not September 15th. However, they will follow the rest of the MOSAIC’s schedule following the first pick-up. Supply pick-up will be stationed on our back parking lot underneath the awning. Teachers will provide further information regarding materials in their upcoming weekly newsletters.

In Person Instruction

Starting the week of September 15th, teachers will begin meeting with students once a week in-person during Intervention Time.  Virtual Intervention Time will occur the other four days a week.  Please click on the link below and read the process we will use when students meet in-person with teachers.  In-person groups are small groups of students (no larger than three students at a time) and your teacher will contact you individually offering available dates and times. Please read my attached letter for further information.

Free Meals provided by the District

I would like to remind our families that the district is now offering free meals for children pre-K up to 18 years of age. Meals are available at MOSAIC from 10:30-12:30 Monday through Friday.
