Dear MOSAIC Families,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer break surrounded by good friends and family. I would like to welcome our new incoming kindergarten families and new students to the MOSAIC community. We are so happy to have you joining our school family. We hope you and your child enjoy the educational opportunities MOSAIC provides for each student and family.

It has been busy at MOSAIC, beginning on the very first day of summer. Over the course of the past eight weeks, MOSAIC has received new windows, ceilings, and an updated HVAC system throughout the school. These three upgrades will make the building more efficient and comfortable for students and staff. The work is scheduled to be completed by August 2nd. Due to the construction, MOSAIC office staff is working at the Witzel building on the Mehlville High School campus across from MOSAIC. MOSAIC office staff can still be reached at our office phone number at 314-467-7900.

The first day of school, Tuesday, August 13th is just over three weeks away. MOSAIC will host an Open House on Monday, August 12th from 5:30-6:30pm. Students and parents will have the opportunity to meet the teacher, drop off school supplies and see the new upgrades to the building. On Thursday, August 29th from 6pm-7pm, parents are invited to attend MOSAIC’s curriculum night. Parents will have the opportunity to hear from their child’s studio teachers about the learning standards for the grade level, best teaching practices based around personalized learning and the power of Project-Based Learning. Please mark your calendar for these events.  

MOSAIC’s next PTO meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 13th at 6pm. An agenda for the meeting will be shared at a later date. We will be selecting a Lead Studio Parent at the August 13th meeting. The selection process will be similar to the PTO Board nomination process. Please email me with your interest in the position by August 1st. Each candidate will be given the opportunity to present for two minutes at the PTO meeting on August 13th. Below are responsibilities of the position.

Lead Room Parent Position Responsibilities:

- Work closely with the PTO treasurer to accept and manage finances related to studio parties 
- Liaison between parents and PTO board and administration 
- Responsible for collecting party receipts to turn over to PTO Treasurer
- Help facilitate meetings to plan parties
- Organize parent signups for parties and/or other events where room parents are needed.

Families will be encouraged to donate $10 per child for three classroom parties during the 2018-2019 school year. Money will be collected at open house on August 13th.  

MOSAIC PTO

We are excited to announce that thanks to incredible fundraising efforts in 2018-2019 our PTO was able to donate the following back to our school for educational enrichment programs that all MOSAIC students will benefit from this coming year.
