SUNDAY NIGHT EMAIL UPDATE:
Weekly email update for September 29-October 3

Good evening MTE families,

I am writing this on my iPad as I travel home from San Antonio. I apologize in advance for any formatting glitches!    It was parent's weekend at Trinity University, and my husband and I had a wonderful time visiting Becca.  I was sad to miss the carnival, but I understand it was a beautiful day and loads of fun!  Thank you PTO for creating a great experience for our families!  

We are going to see red and blue this week!  In an effort to support our Kansas City teams, I know we will have many wearing red tomorrow for the Chiefs Monday Night Football game!  

Extra exciting--our Royals made the playoffs!  Let's support the team by making Tuesday a "Royal" blue day at MTE.  We will tell students who want to participate- we will wear Royals gear or royal blue on Tuesday.  Exciting times in KC!

As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns - please contact me.  I hope you have a wonderful week!

"It is a great day to be a bulldog!"

Debbie Bond

SIGN UP FOR BV ALERTS, BLUE VALLEY’S EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM
It’s time to sign up or update your preferences on Blue Valley’s emergency notification system BV Alerts. If you have already signed up to receive emergency text messages, there is no need to sign up again. If you are a new subscriber or if you need to update information or preferences, such as your child’s school, visit www.bluevalleyk12.org/bvalerts. Signing up or updating information is quick and simple. Simply follow the instructions to personalize the system to meet your needs.
 
Text message alerts will only be used to communicate emergency messages from the district and/or schools and closings due to inclement weather. It is important to understand that BV Alerts does not replace current district emergency or school closing communication practices such as email and posting information on the district website. The alert system is merely an additional tool to send urgent information out to the community in a timely manner. If you have any questions regarding BV Alerts, please call 239-4043.
 
BUS SERVICE TEXTCASTER
Did you know you must register for Durham TextCaster each new school year to stay informed and receive texts about your student’s bus service?  Signing up is easy. Visitwww.bluevalleydurham.com and follow the link to TextCaster.
 
Please note that Durham’s TextCaster service looks much the same as the Blue Valley Alerts System.    Durham’s TextCaster’s service is specific to bus information and Blue Valley Alerts is used to notify staff and parents in the event of an emergency or school closure due to inclement weather.   Registration for each service is separate
 
LABELS FOR EDUCATION
Don't forget to save Labels for Education: They can be collected from some of the following products: Bic pens, Campbell's Soup, Dannon, Pace, Pepperidge Farms products (don't forget Goldfish!), pop secret, Post cereals, Prego, Spaghettios, Swanson, V8, V8 Splash, V8 Fusion. Collection bin in office or send in anytime with your student. Thanks for collecting all points collected go toward playground and pe equipment. Julie Scott jcscottku@gmail.com
 
POP TAB COLLECTION BOXES SENT HOME
You should have received your pop tab collection houses this week.  Encourage your friends and family members to collect tabs from pop cans and soup cans and bring them in to the large collection bin by THE library.  They will be weighed, and money earned will go toward helping the Ronald McDonald House. Last year we collected 45.6 pounds which equaled $60. Let's try to collect 50 pounds this year!

EARLY CHILDHOOD PROGRAM OPENINGS
The Blue Valley Early Childhood program has classrooms throughout the district for children ages 3-5.  Students from Mission Trail typically attend a classroom at MTE.  Our classrooms serve students with developmental delays/disabilities as well as typically developing peers.  Peers provide modeling of age appropriate skills while gaining a high quality preschool education.  The classrooms meet for half days on Monday-Thursday during the school year.  At this time, peer enrollment is still open for 3 year olds in our morning classrooms.  More information, including enrollment criteria, a video about our program, contact information and the application for peers is available at www.bluevalleyk12.org/peermodel
