Kindergarten Lottery for the 2021-2022 School Year
MOSAIC Elementary will hold a virtual parent information night on Monday, December 7th, at 6 p.m. for parents who are interested in their child attending kindergarten at MOSAIC Elementary for the 2020-2021 school year. Please visit the MOSAIC website, mosaic.
Although the district provided Chromebooks are very durable, there are times where something can go wrong with them. Please reach out to the district’s IT office at [email protected] if your child’s Chromebook is having issues.
I would like to encourage our families to submit a MOSAIC Recognition Form to give a shout out to a MOSAIC student or staff member. I read submissions each day for morning announcements. It is a great way to begin the day!
I would like to remind our families that the district is still providing curbside meals. Please read the information below for all the details.
Monday: pickup available at all schools 10:30 am-12:30 pm
Tuesday-Friday: pickup available at Mehlville and Oakville High Schools only, 10:30 am-12:30 pm.

SPREADING JOY SIGN-UP
(SIGN-UP ENDS WEDNESDAY)
We are on a mission to spread as much contactless joy this season as we possibly can. Please join us! We are putting together a package for contactless pick-up at one of three locations that will contain supplies for our graham cracker house contest and snowflakes for a ‘Spread Joy’ banner that will be displayed outside the school. Each pick-up location will have a collection bin for non-perishable items to be donated to the Affton Food Pantry and an “official” North Pole mailbox where you can drop off your letters to Santa.
At this time, we are only able to offer the packages to Mosaic students, but we encourage all family members to join in on the fun! You will receive a package for each student signed-up. Sign-up ends Wednesday, December 2nd. Contactless pick-up/drop-off time slots will be arranged on Sunday, December 6th and Monday, December 7th. Further details will be sent out prior to pick-up/drop-off.
