Home of the Monarchs!

We hope you enjoy visiting our Website. Our school's number one focus is to see each student reach his or her highest potential. Our overall goal is to improve student achievement. To reach this goal, we follow strategies from our annual School Improvement Plan. At Masters Elementary, the staff, parents, students, and community work together to increase student achievement. By keeping the lines of communication open, students will experience success at Masters.

Masters School provides many services to meet the needs of our students and community. Breakfast is provided before school for all students, and before and after school day care is available through OPS Kids Club. We have a hard working and active PTO that sponsors family activities, and of course, an outstanding staff teaching an excellent curriculum, supporting our goal of improving student achievement.

The Masters School Web site will provide important information about our school and events for the school year. Please visit our Web site throughout the school year. We value your input. Let us know if you have suggestions, questions, or concerns. By working together, we can make a difference in the lives of our students.

Show your Masters pride by wearing school colors, orange and black, or a Masters shirt on Fridays!

KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS 2018-2019

We are looking for new Kindergarten students for the 2018/19 school year.  If you have a child that will be entering Kindergarten during that time, or know of someone that will, please call the office at 402-572-1027.  Kindergarten round-up will be January 10th, child must be age 5 by July 31, 2018.  Please bring your kindergartener with you. They will visit our kindergarten classroom with the kindergarten teachers and participate in a learning activity in the classroom setting. When coming for Kindergarten roundup, please bring proof of address, child’s birth certificate and immunization records. Tell your neighbors if they do not have children enrolled at Masters.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT

Time is running out to turn in your Hy-Vee receipts dated September 1 – December 31, 2017.  Masters will receive a check for 2% of the the total dollar amount of the receipts collected by our school. Please keep Masters in mind when you do your holiday grocery shopping.  PTO will continue to collect box tops for the remainder of the school year.  Thank you in advance for your help.

 

OFFICE

Just a friendly reminder that school starts at 8:50 a.m., breakfast is from 8:40 – 8:50 in the classroom setting.  If your child enters the building at 8:51 your child will be tardy. Being here on time helps your student to be a respectful, responsible learner, reviewing the classroom expectations for the day and any new information needed for the day. Again, thank you for setting your student up for a successful day each day by making certain they are here at school on time.

 

Movie Night

Come out and join other Masters Families for our annual PTO fun-filled, free movie night on January 26th at 6:30 p.m.  Popcorn and juice will be provided.  Have your child, bring a blanket and a pillow.  PTO will be showing Despicable Me 2.

FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Wow, it is hard to believe that quarter 2 of school has come to an end. Parents are our partners in education and simply put, we cannot do it without you! I want to personally thank our Masters parents/caregivers. You are amazing and show great pride and respect for the work that we do at Masters. Masters parents rock! Please stay abreast of your students’ learning progress or any missing assignments through the OPS Parent Portal. If you have any questions and you do not have current access please contact the front office so that we can make certain that you have access. Please feel free to e-mail your comments, suggestions, or questions to ledonna.whitegriffin@ops.org I welcome your input.                                                                                                 Sincerely,

Dr. LeDonna Griffin, Principal
