Dear Parents and Families,

Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. This event is an opportunity for students of all ages to build their home libraries and further their love of reading. As always, all purchases benefit our school library.

Mrs. Nichols and Mrs. Hudson will be hosting the Book Fair in the library this year. Here is what you need to know about the Fair, which will take place from October 11 – 13:

  • Students will have an opportunity to preview the Book Fair and create a wish list on October 8. 
  • The Book Fair will be open for student shopping only. Unfortunately, families are not able to attend the Book Fair at this time. 
  • Our Book Fair accepts cash or checks (made out to MOSAIC Elementary) and offers a cash-free payment option called eWallet.
  • Families are welcome to shop our school’s Virtual Book Fair. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Your online orders will also benefit our school.

Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with eWallet and online shopping:

We are excited to celebrate our love of books together at the Book Fair!

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.

I would like to thank our students, staff and families for making last week a successful start to our 2021-2022 school year.

August 16, 2021 – Dr. Clark Email

Dear MOSAIC Families,

We are less than two weeks away from the first day of school. We are so excited to see our students and families once again! Teachers and staff have been working these past few weeks to organize their studios and prepare for the first day. 

We have several events taking place over the next two weeks that we hope you can attend. PTO will host their first meeting of the year tomorrow evening beginning at 6:30pm. You can attend PTO meetings two ways this school year. Either in person in MOSAIC’s cafeteria or virtually through Zoom. You can find the meeting link for tomorrow’s PTO meeting and the 6:00pm room parent meeting below. The room parent meeting will also offer the option to attend in person or attend virtually. Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide childcare during either of these meetings and in the near future for monthly PTO meetings. 

We will celebrate the new school year with our incoming kindergarten families at our Kindergarten Meet and Greet this Thursday, August 19th from 6:00-7:00pm. Kindergarten students will have the opportunity to meet their teachers, see their classroom and drop off school supplies. Students and families will not have to wear a face covering outside during the event, but will be required to wear a face covering when entering the school. Kindergarten families will also receive their row assignment for student pick-up this Thursday. 

1st through 5th grade student supply drop off will be next Tuesday, August 24th from 4:00-5:30pm. Tuesday evening is a brief opportunity for students and their families to drop-off supplies and see the classroom. All visitors to the building will be required to wear a face covering upon entering the school. 

A Note from Nurse Carly

I can’t believe we are already getting ready to start the 2021 school year! I hope you all had a wonderful summer.

Dr. Clark has already mentioned that we are going to be a nut-free school again this year. This means all products containing peanuts and tree-nuts will not be permissible. We are also fish free. We take student and staff safety very seriously in regards to allergies. Please be courteous and check your ingredients. If your child brings a lunch that contains nuts to school, they will be provided a school lunch.

While we continue to practice safe guided instructions from the Health Department, we will still be following last year’s health screener and using our guide to determine when to send students home from school that are symptomatic. Please look at both and use those as a guide when determining if your child can come to school. If you have any questions, please reach out.

Any medications to be administered at school require the completion of the dispensing medication form found under optional e-Forms on the parent portal. If your child has a prescription, the label acts as the doctor’s note. However, if your child has over the counter medication, I will need a note from the doctor. In addition to medication, if your child has an action plan (asthma, food allergy), please make sure that we have a new one on file for the school year.

I will be at our supply drop off for medication drop off for the year. If you cannot make that time, please make arrangements to drop off any medications before or on the first day of school. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. My phone number is 314-467-7930 and my email is rogersc@msdr9.org

MOSAIC Student Arrival and Dismissal Procedure along with Bus Routes

The district provides bus transportation to MOSAIC only in the morning. Students who choose to utilize district transportation will ride their neighborhood Mehlville bus to their home school (ex. Bierbaum, Forder, Rogers). From their home school, students will ride a shuttle bus to MOSAIC. Families should review the bus route information for the nearest bus stop to your home. 

Below are the bus routes for each individual school:

Beasley and Blades

Students in the Beasley and Blades attendance area will catch the MOSAIC shuttle bus at their home schools. The MOSAIC shuttle bus for Blades students will arrive at Blades’ front parking lot at 8:45am. I would arrive five minutes earlier than 8:45am. Beasley students will catch the MOSAIC shuttle bus also at 8:45am in Beasley’s front parking lot. Plan to arrive a few minutes early as well.

Bierbaum Elementary

Forder Elementary

Hagemann Elementary

Oakville Elementary

Point Elementary

Rogers Elementary

Trautwein Elementary

Wohlwend Elementary

Families do have the option if they chose to drop their child off in the morning for school. Morning arrival is from 8:55-9:10am. Like in the past, families will be assigned a row (K-1 on playground lot, 2-5 on the lower lot) for student pick up in the afternoon. Kindergarten families will receive their lane placement at the kindergarten meet and greet on Thursday, August 19th. All other families will receive their row placement at supply drop off on Tuesday, August 24th.  

Please view the video below for MOSAIC’s arrival and dismissal procedures. 

A Message from the District

We have Mehlville merch + Setting up your ParentSquare account

Get your Mehlville merch on!
 

Back by popular demand, we are presenting another opportunity to order Mehlville Spiritwear. Browse our new shop for shirts, hoodies, hats, backpacks and briefcases. For every item purchased, $2 goes toward our employee recognition program for retirees, staff celebrating significant years of service, and teacher and classified employees of the year. Items purchased will be delivered to your school this fall.
 
 
 Browse Mehlville Spiritwear.


 Setting up your ParentSquare account
 You may have noticed district emails and text messages — including this one! — have been coming from ParentSquare since July 1.  We made the transition from SchoolMessenger to ParentSquare this summer to improve district and school communications. Later today we will invite you to activate your account and set up your preferences. Setting your notification preferences is key to helping staff assigned to multiple schools manage how and where they receive communication. We recorded the video below to show you how to set up your account.
 
 Please note that we are still adding and updating staff in our Student Information System and ParentSquare. We know several of our employees are associated with the wrong schools, and we are working on correcting that. While we work to resolve this, you may want to turn notifications off for schools you are no longer working at. Please watch the video for instructions.
 
News from School Food & Nutrition Services:

We are looking forward to seeing the students in our cafeterias. Breakfast and lunch meals are free for all students this school year due to a nationwide waiver from the USDA.  Schools will have additional items, such as bottled water students can purchase if they have adequate funds in their meal account.  Funds can be deposited in student meal accounts online through MySchoolBucks.  The cafes also accept cash or checks made payable to the Mehlville School District.  Please note, change will not be given for cash deposits. To view 2021-22 a la carte prices, click HERE.  A la carte items vary by school.

School Food & Nutrition Services has part time positions available for the upcoming school year.  If you enjoy working with kids and only want to work while your children are at school, SFNS has the job for you.  To apply, visit mehlvilleschooldistrict.com, select Employment under Quick Links and apply for the School Food and Nutrition Services Technician 3 hours.

If you have any questions, please contact the SFNS office at 467-5250.

Carpooling

I want to encourage families to consider carpooling this school year. Carpooling reduces the amount of cars on the lot and the time it takes to dismiss.  Please fill out the carpool form listed below by Thursday, August 19th only if you are interested in carpooling. This information will be shared in a PDF on Friday, August 20th through email to those who only filled out this document. Please complete the Carpool form first. Once you have identified a partner family for carpooling, please email our school secretary Mrs. Rooks at rooksj@msdr9.org to share carpooling information. Carpool Form

Before School and After School Care

Families can choose to utilize Y-Care as a before and after school care for your child. Hours for Y-Care are from 6:30am until the beginning of the school day and from the end of the school day until 6:00pm. Y-Care will take place in MOSAIC’s gym. The most convenient way to get to MOSAIC’s gym is to park in our front lot off Will Avenue and take the steps on the north side of the building to the gym doors. Students at MOSAIC can only attend Y-Care at MOSAIC and are not allowed to attend Y-Care in other Mehlville School District schools. You can contact the YMCA at 314-849-9622. 

We will also have several local childcare providers transporting students to MOSAIC as well. Please make sure to notify your child care provider if you plan on utilizing their transportation services. Below is a list of child care providers that have committed to providing transportation to and from MOSAIC.

Kinder Care – (314)892-1627 – 4105 Telegraph/Kingswood

You may want to contact your child’s daycare provider if they are not listed above. Again, this is the only provider that committed to providing transportation for your child.

New Staff at MOSAIC

We are welcoming several new staff members to our MOSAIC family this school year. Mrs. Kathryn Stengel will be our new 4th grade studio teacher. Mr. James Osterberg will be serving MOSAIC as one of our new art teachers. Mrs. Melissa Murar and Mrs. Katie Morris are both serving MOSAIC as academic interventionists. Please read the brief messages below from several of our new staff members. 

Mrs. Kathryn Stengel (4th Grade Studio)

I am thrilled to be joining the MOSAIC team! I have 15 years of experience as an elementary teacher, assistant principal and instructional specialist. I also spent a few years at home with my two children who will be in fourth (Micah) and first (Gianna) grades this year. My husband Matt is an engineer and we live in Webster Groves. We’ve been enjoying lots of fun in the sun this summer–Cub Scout Camp (I am a den leader.), floating, baseball, hiking, and most recently, a high ropes course! I also enjoy gardening and reading. I am originally from Florissant, but have many friends and relatives in the Mehlville district. As a constructivist educator, I have had my eye on MOSAIC since its beginning. I know it is a truly exceptional place when it comes to bringing out the best in every learner and providing children with meaningful experiences to connect them to our wonderful world. I can’t wait to get started!

Ms. Katie Morris (K-2 Academic Interventionist) 

Hello! My name is Katie Morris and I am so excited to be joining the MOSAIC team this year! This will be my fourth year teaching, as I have taught first grade for the past three years in Jackson, Missouri. My family is so excited to be returning to St. Louis to be closer to family and embark on this new adventure! I have two children named Harper and Miles, a wonderful husband named Andy, and two big loveable dogs named Lucy and Holly. I love to spend time outdoors hiking trails, playing the violin, watching all kinds of music, and family movie nights. I am passionate about working with children and watching them reach their highest potential. At MOSAIC, I look forward to helping our kids grow and find success in the ways that fit them best!

Mrs. Melissa Murar (3-5 Academic Interventionist) 

Hi! I am Melissa Murar and this will be my 10th year teaching. I spent the last six years teaching 4th grad. Prior to that, I taught 5th – 8th graders. I am from Fayetteville, IL but currently reside in Oakville with my husband, John. We have two children – Grayson (3) and Ellie (6 months), and a golden doodle, Stanley. I love the St. Louis Blues and Cardinals, exploring independent restaurants, jogging around our neighborhood, relaxing with a good pedicure, and above all else, I love spending quality time with my children and family. I am beyond ecstatic about being an Academic Interventionist at MOSAIC and ensuring every student shines at their brightest potential.

Dear MOSAIC Families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and took time to enjoy the beautiful weather. The weather the next few days looks very promising as well. We will get rain later in the week, but we will make sure to get our students outside for recess to burn off some winter energy.  

Our 3rd through 5th grade MOSAIC@Home families received an email from our district to select a date/time to take the upcoming MAP test this Spring. I am asking our MOSAIC@Home families pause from filling out this form. We are in the process of scheduling MAP testing for our MOSAIC students, both in person and virtual students. More information about MAP testing will be shared in the upcoming weeks. Thanks for your patience.

We would like to invite our MOSAIC families to join us tomorrow evening at 6pm for our monthly PTO meeting. Mrs. Bradley, Ms. Lazzara and Mrs. Werner will be presenting on the exciting learning opportunities students are experiencing in their studios. Attendees will also participate in an activity to share ideas about future plans for our school and PTO. You do not want to miss this meeting!

Register to vote by March 10 to participate in the April election

Mehlville School District residents have an important item on the April 6, 2021, ballot.  The district is asking voters for a zero tax rate increase bond issue, called Prop S.

Parents and other residents are encouraged to learn more about Prop S and to vote. If you aren’t already registered to vote, the deadline to register is Wednesday, March 10, 2021. The Missouri Secretary of State’s website has several options to register to vote: 

Who can vote?

To register to vote in Missouri, you must be:

  • At least 17 ½ years of age (but you must be 18 by the day of the election to vote)
  • A U.S. Citizen
  • A Missouri Resident

Happy Monday MOSAIC Families,

Welcome to a new week and a new month. It is hard to believe that we are in March already. March will prove to be a busy month, even with our Spring Break later this month. Parent/Teacher conferences are during the week of March 15th on an as needed basis. Your child’s teacher will communicate with you if a conference is necessary. Families can also request a conference with their child’s teacher.  

Register to vote by March 10 to participate in the April election

Mehlville School District residents have an important item on the April 6, 2021, ballot.  The district is asking voters for a zero tax rate increase bond issue, called Prop S. If passed, Prop S would fund facility projects that improve student safety, and address critical infrastructure needs like restroom renovations, ADA accessibility, and HVAC and roofing replacements without raising the tax rate.

Parents and other residents are encouraged to learn more about Prop S and to vote. If you aren’t already registered to vote, the deadline to register is Wednesday, March 10, 2021. The Missouri Secretary of State’s website has several options to register to vote: 

Who can vote?

To register to vote in Missouri, you must be:

  • At least 17 ½ years of age (but you must be 18 by the day of the election to vote)
  • A U.S. Citizen
  • A Missouri Resident

February 22, 2021 – Dr. Clark Email

Dear MOSAIC Families,

Isn’t it wonderful to leave the house in the morning with the sun on your face and the birds chirping? The change in weather and warmer temperatures are definitely welcome.  I hope that all the snow will melt away these next few days and colder temperatures are behind us. I know this may not be possible as we have a lot of winter left, but one can hope.

Please take a few moments to read this week’s email blast. I have included important information from our district, our PTO and teachers.
