A Note from the Counselor:

In October our classroom counseling lessons in grades K-5 will focus on skills of resiliency, coping skills and how to get help for oneself and/or a friend. These lessons are intended to educate students on feelings of stress, worry, sadness, how to cope with such feelings, and how to ask for help if needed. Please talk with your child about these feelings, and reinforce appropriate coping strategies such as talking with a trusted adult, exercising, or doing an activity they enjoy. Please contact Laurie Fitzpatrick at lafitzpatrick@mpsomaha.org with any questions!

Please Label Your Child's Clothing

Please label your child clothing with the last name on the tag of the clothing. Items in the Lost and Found are donated to a non-profit organization at designated times throughout the year. We want to make sure your items get back to you before this donation.

Clothing Donations Needed for the Health Room

We are in need for both girls and boys elastic top pants in smaller sizes for kindergarteners through third graders to keep in the health room if pants become too wet to wear. If you would like to donate some pants, please send them to the office.
