MOSAIC Elementary School – September 7th, 2021
Dear MOSAIC Families,
I hope everyone had an enjoyable three day holiday weekend. We enter this short week with many things to do and accomplish. The students are doing a fantastic job at school. They quickly settled into the new school year and are working hard on their daily projects. The students are currently taking district-wide benchmarks in IReady in the areas of ELA and Math. IReady provides MOSAIC teachers with detailed information about a child’s readiness around grade level specific content standards. This is just one source of data we use to personalize your child’s education at MOSAIC. We will continue to communicate our students’ performance with our families over the course of the next few weeks.
The Kindergarten students have been learning about the Zones of Regulation. They should be able to tell you what feelings go with each color. MOSAIC’s school counselor, Ms. Blanchette has shared how amazed she is at how much they already know. Over the next couple of weeks, they will make a new Zones poster for their classroom and learn about strategies they could use in each Zone. First through fifth graders have been reviewing what they remember about the Zones with a fun game of Kahoot. MOSAIC would also like to welcome Ms. Schrader to our Mosaic family. She comes to us from St. Louis Counseling to help support our students with their social/emotional needs.
We hope you can join us this evening at 6:30pm for our September PTO meeting. You can attend the meeting either in person in MOSAIC’s cafeteria or virtually through ZOOM. Please click on this link to attend tonight’s PTO meeting virtually.
