December 2018

Hello December

As the cold weather hits our faces each day we are reminded that this year is fleeting! December is a busy time of year for us at school and for our family at home. This Friday we host the PTO Night with Santa "Winter Wonderland" from 6-8pm. Be sure to come out and enjoy plenty of free activities along with a tasty chili dinner sponsored by the R7 Boosters.

Here is a look from the month November:

*Honored our Veterans on November 9th with our annual assembly.

*Watch Dog kick off on November 13 welcomed 17 new volunteers of Dads, Brothers, Grandpas, and Uncles.

*Our first Snow Day was on November 15!

*We celebrated the holiday season with a parade for our PreK friends.

*Telegraph donated 46 pies to the Rescue Mission in Pevely with our annual Pie Social.

Notes from Nurse Mandy:


  • Friendly reminder if you child is sent home from school with a fever, they may not return until they are 24 hours fever free without medication.
  • It's flu and cold season---wash hands often, cover mouth/nose with elbow when coughing, get plenty of rest each night, do not share food/drinks with friends, get your flu shot.
