Mesnier ELL students learn about Olympics

Dear Mesnier Families,


Every day most of our students start and end their day on a school bus. Our bus drivers provide a valuable service that ensures the safety of our students. In honor of Bus Driver Appreciation Week, we want to thank all of the drivers and transportation staff who perform such a special job. Take a moment and say ‘thanks’ to your child's bus driver and encourage your child to create a card.


Do you know someone who makes a difference at Affton Schools? You have the opportunity to recognize one of the many unsung heroes doing great things. The prestigious SOAR Award is bestowed upon individuals who show excellence of character, performance, leadership, and service to the Affton School District. Any individual providing volunteer service to Affton or working at an Affton location is eligible.  The nomination process for the 2017-2018 SOAR Awards runs Feb. 5-March 2. Click here for additional information, nomination forms and online nominations: http://afftonschools.net/soar/



This month we are learning how to  Sharpen The Saw.  This habit reminds us about the importance of renewing ourselves by taking care of our health, keeping healthy relationships, and being open to learning. Parents can help students to practice this habit at home by leading discussions on healthy snacks, exercise, making time to play and rest, spending time with family, and taking care of nature.
