Updated MVP Information!

The Shawnee Mission School District (SMSD) strongly encourages volunteer support for students and schools. It is equally committed to the safety of students and volunteers. To support the goal of safety, the district has instituted a policy requiring background records checks for all volunteers.

In order to make the process more efficient and effective, on September 24, 2018, the Shawnee Mission Board of Education (BOE) approved the use of Validity Screening Solutions to provide background screenings for MVP volunteers. This new background screening process will take the place of the current fingerprinting requirement for MVP volunteers.  Instead of coming to the Center for Academic Achievement, MVP volunteers will go on-line to and enter the required information.

There are now two steps required to complete the MVP process:

      1)Attend an in-person training

a.Visit https://www.smsd.org/families/volunteer-mvp for available sessions.

b.Note: Tuesday morning sessions at CAA require a reservation—seating is limited. Email [email protected] for more information.

      2)Visit Validity Screening to complete the online, background screening process.

a.If you have already completed the required training, visit this link to complete the process.

In most cases, applicants will be approved and ready to serve as a MVP volunteer within 48 hours.

SMSD apologizes for the inconvenience the fingerprinting process and long wait times have created. We believe Validity will provide greater convenience in less time, while still maintaining the safety our stakeholders, students and staff members expect and deserve. Your commitment to your student’s education and to the district as a whole is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Mrs. Netolicky

Principal, East Antioch

October is Bullying Prevention month

Every October, schools and organizations across the country join in observing National Bullying Prevention Month. The goal is to work together to prevent Bullying and Cyberbullying by bringing awareness to the occurrence and effects of bullying on children of all ages. East Antioch will be including anti-bullying activities at school throughout the month beginning on October 1, 2018. One of those activities is that we will be participating in a spirit week during Kansas Anti-Bullying Week October 8th-14th, 2018. See attachment for next week’s spirit week Anti-Bullying Spirit Week .pdf . We will also be providing parent information in our East Antioch News and Events. This is our chance to make Bullying prevention heard in our community. Please see attachemet from many Ks partners about what bullying really is, and how to prevent it Is Your Child Bullying.pdf. Together we can all help to keep our school a safe and happy place for all students.

School of Excellence Program

PTA School of Excellence

Dear East Antioch Families and Teachers:

The East Antioch Elementary PTA knows that a strong partnership among our families, school leaders and community members is important to the success of our students and school. That’s why we are participating in the National PTA School of Excellence program, which grows partnerships between PTAs and schools to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being of all students.

At a National PTA School of Excellence, families feel welcomed and empowered to support student success, and PTA is a key partner for continuous school improvement. We feel East Antioch Elementary and East Antioch Elementary PTA can achieve that together—and the result will be national, state and community-wide visibility for the positive impact we are making together at East Antioch Elementary.

We need your help! As part of the process, National PTA requests feedback from families, administrators and teachers at two points in the school year—the beginning and the end. Your feedback will help National PTA generate a customized guide which will provide specific recommendations for improving our family-school partnership and achieving excellence.

Please take 5-10 minutes to reflect on your experience at this school and complete the linked survey. Mark an “X” in the box that most accurately expresses how you feel about your experience. This survey is completely anonymous. Please return this survey through Google Drive by Monday, October 1st, 2018 at this GOOGLE SURVEY LINK.

Does this sound like a PTA program you’d really like to help with? Join us! Contact Amber Pittman by email at[email protected] to learn more!

Sincerely,

 

Amber Pittman                                                                      Felicia Netolicky

East Antioch Elementary PTA President                           East Antioch Elementary Principal

Thank you for your continued support and collaboration as we work toward becoming a National PTA School of Excellence!
