Dear MTE families,

I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weekend!

 

I am looking forward to the upcoming week and seeing our parents at our Parent/Teacher conferences.  Thank you to the PTO for their support as they provide a dinner meal for all of the teachers on Monday night.  Please remember, our evening conferences will be held on Monday and Tuesday of this week.  We will also have conferences all day on Thursday.  Students do not have school on Thursday or Friday this week.  If you need help scheduling a conference, please call Mary Dilworth or Laura Durham at 913 239-6700 and they will help you set one up. 

 

I hope you have a wonderful week!  Go Royals!

If your student has participated in community service, please go online now to log their minutes.  We’ll place a leaf with your students’ name on the Community Service Tree in the main hallway to track their commitment to giving back.

 

When visiting your children during the fall parties and parade, please grab a few bills and consider donating to the Lisa Barth Interfaith Chapel and garden at Children's Mercy Hospital's downtown campus.  Lisa and Kevin Barth's children are alumni of Mission Trail Elementary.  There will be a donation jar in the front hallway at the Spirit Wear table.  Please see Laurel Thorpe for any questions.  

 

 

VETERAN’S DAY POD ACTIVITY – LETTER WRITING

On Nov. 6, join us for an after school activity in Pod B from 3:45-4:30 p.m.  Our focus will be Veterans Day.  We will read a short book about the history and importance of this holiday and then we will write to veterans.  All ages are invited, as younger children may draw pictures for the veterans while older children write letters.  We encourage parents bringing small groups of children to ensure that there is one adult for every four children participating.
