Mission Elementary Weekly News

August 1, 2021

Dear families,

On behalf of our school team, I would like to welcome you back to Mission Elementary School. We look forward to working with you and your child/children this school year. In order to have a safe and smooth start, we want to share the following important information:

School Uniforms—We are proud to be a uniform school. The uniform policy allows the focus to be on learning and not clothing. Students really feel a part of the school community and new students are able to blend in quickly when in uniform. We thank you in advance for your support. Student uniform consists of:

  • Tops: White, grey, light blue, or navy shirts or blouses (only Mission logos allowed)
  • Bottoms: Navy blue, khaki, or black pants, blue jeans, shorts, skirt or jumper
  • Shoes: Closed toe and closed heel shoes

School Meals: All meals will continue to be offered at no cost to all scholars.

Free After School Program: Mission's after school program includes fun activities designed to increase reading and math skills and homework help for students in grades K-5. Space is limited; we encourage you to apply today. ASAP After School Program Application Link (paper copies are available in our office)

Before School Care Survey: We are exploring the possibility of offering before school care. This survey will help us determine the needs of our families. Please complete by Wednesday, August 4. Survey Link

Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)— We encourage you to join our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). The first PTO meeting will be held Thursday, August 19, at 5:30 PM. Look for more information in future newsletters.
