News & Announcements

  • Today we say good-bye to Ms. Soper in Preschool. Ms. Chmura will be returning from her maternity leave on Monday. We are so lucky to have had Ms. Soper with us for the last three months and she will be greatly missed! We look forward to welcoming Ms. Chmura back and hearing all about her new baby!
  • Preschool and Kindergarten Registration: If you have, or know someone who has, children eligible for our preschool or kindergarten programs, mark your calendars. Registration will be held on Friday, April 29, 2022. Preschool registration will be from 9:30-10:30 and Kindergarten registration will be from 11:00-12:00. Registration packets are available in the front office. Please note: Current PK and K students will not have school that day.
  • Conference day is being rescheduled for Thursday, April 14th. It will be a 12:30 dismissal on that day and conferences will go until 7:00 pm.
  • 6th grade families--Mark your calendars! Step-Up Day at MTRS is scheduled for Monday, June 13th. More information to come.
  • Please remember to check your child's backpack and make sure that there are not any items (such as zipper pulls, carabineers, little stuffed animals, etc) hanging off of it that could get caught in the bus door. We want to ensure that everyone gets on and off the bus safely.
  • We have had to make several adjustments to the April menu based on what was delivered for commodities. At this point, we are only able to plan for next week and hope that next week we are able to put out a full menu for the month. Please make sure to review it with your child as we are unable to offer an alternate meal this year. Thank you for your understanding.
