Pizza Hut Night
Good evening! Today, following a meeting with Franklin County school leaders, the health department, and county leaders, all Franklin County superintendents are collectively announcing an extended school closure. Since Meramec Valley is on spring break this week, the closure will begin on Monday, March 23, and will preliminarily end Friday, April 3. During this time, all school activities, including athletic and extracurricular practices and competitions, will be canceled for the duration of the school closure. A link to the full press is provided here I know you will have many questions related to learning during the time of closure. District leaders will be meeting over the next few days to finalize those plans. Additional information will be sent to parents no later than Thursday of this week. It will provide details regarding learning experiences, meal availability, and general practices to help slow the spread of COVID-19. We know that closing our schools will have a significant impact on our families, but we also believe that strong, urgent action must be taken to prevent the spread of this disease and to protect lives. We thank our community for their support and partnership in this effort. Again, your patience and understanding are appreciated. John Mulford, Ed.D. Superintendent Meramec Valley R-III School District

Happy Thursday! We will NOT have school next week 11/25-11/29. School resumes on 12/2. PTO is working hard and doing GREAT things! Truman Spirit Store - Here is the flyer: The store is open NOW and will close on 12/2! Here is the link to the Spirit Store directly: *****All sale profits will go towards #Shade4OurPlayground Texas Roadhouse Gift Card Sales - Here is the flyer: Gift card sales are open NOW and will close on 12/2! Some clarification about the Texas Roadhouse gift card fundraiser. Students will not get the cards right away. If they are done selling they can return their folder to school any time, but we hope students can use the break and family time to sell more cards before they are ready to return! Texas Roadhouse will make our cards with the Truman logo on them โ€“ so they will not be sent home until the week of Dec. 16th. The week of Dec. 2nd we will be around and give every student that sold a card a gift bag from Texas Roadhouse with a red letter attached with directions for parents to return giving us information on how they want the cards to go home. (With the child or will they pick up at SACC)! Variety Show Auditions & Show Date - Here is the flyer: This is year the show is in APRIL! This is different than what you are use to but we are excited for a spring show! See the flyer for more information! Supporting our community #MVNation: Christmas Tree Flyer - Christmas on the Plaza Flyer - Last, but NOT LEAST, #ThankfulThursday: Sometimes it is nice to take a deep breathe and think of all the positives that are surrounding us. We wanted to extend our gratitude to our Tribe. We passed out notes at dismissal for all of you to receive, if you did not, we want you to know "WE ARE THANKFUL TO HAVE you as a part of our Tribe Family. THANK YOU FOR trusting us with your student, WE SURE DO LOVE THEM! Love, Truman Elementary!"

Parent Note
Finish this week strong with our Thanksgiving Basket Drive! Friday: canned pie filling and pie crust. ***We could use more boxes potatoes and gravy! Something to celebrate while we are focusing on giving this week. Truman Ambassadors filled the back of the Agape House Van with canned goods that we have collected over the past couple months and on #GivingWednesday! I am so proud of their smiles, leadership, and giving hearts ๐Ÿ’œ #TribeLife #MVNation

It has been a crazy week with weather but we have worked through it and are excited for the weekend! We are finishing up our Thanksgiving Drive - see this flyer to bring in any last minute items: Thanksgiving Drive Flyer Next Wednesday we have another Pizza Hut Night Out (these flyers will come home on Monday!) but are also attached. Progress reports will be sent out next Friday 11/22! Also next week is our last full week and then we will have a full week for Fall Break. There is NO SCHOOL 11/25-11/29. PTO - Texas Roadhouse Gift Card Fundraiser was sent home and is open for selling NOW through 12/2. See attached. ***This one is just to put on your radar but know that you still have plenty of time and more reminders will go out in future weeks = Variety Show Auditions! See attached. ast, I just want to leave you with an 'ah-ha' moment that I had this dawned on me multiple times throughout the week the importance both in young and mature minds how critical it is to have a Growth Mindset. Not only is it important to have but more important to teach, model, and practice on a daily basis. I have attached a little info-graphic explaining the main ideas of having a growth mindset. I would encourage you to look more into it more on your own if your are curious! The thought of encouraging and supporting our students self-confidence will be so contagious among our building! It will allow them to interact with more self assurance. It will allow them to encourage others. It will allow them to smile more. It will allow them challenge themselves. It will allow them to sky rocket and grow through successes and positive outlooks. I will leave you with this quote:
