BPA National Conference Success!
Outstanding business students traveled to Anaheim, California along with 5,700 other conference delegates May 6-10. Placing at the State and National levels is extremely difficult and our students were exceptional this year! This year we had 8 students represent us at the national conference in Anaheim and the following students received awards:
Our Business Professionals of America chapter is largely assisted in this endeavor with financial support from our school as well as local businesses. Thank you for your continued support to our local BPA chapter!
Service Dog Connects Learning
As part of the 3rd Grade Journeys Reading Curriculum which contains stories and reading passages about service animals, the K-9 Police unit from Alma Police Department visited Nikkari Elementary. Our Third Grade classrooms were treated to a presentation and demonstration by Officer Gulick and his dog Castor. Students thought of questions beforehand and wrote them out for the team to answer. The two guests did a wonderful job of helping students understand and connect their learning to real life by taking the lessons learned in school and making them come alive. A huge thank you to the Alma Police Department for sharing their resources and to Officer Gulick and Castor for their time and expertise.
Spanish Club ~ Spain Trip
The St. Louis High School Spanish Club poses for a group photo at the Plaza de España in Seville, Spain.
The St. Louis High School Spanish Club would like to thank the businesses, organizations, and individuals from the local communities that supported our recent Spain trip. Your support during our fundraisers over the past two years has been overwhelming. 41 students and 7 adults spent ten days traveling throughout Spain while learning about the culture, history, geography, and language of a beautiful country. The club would like to extend its most sincere gracias to everybody for helping cultivate such an incredible and educational experience for our youth. Thanks for helping our small town kids do big things!
Sincerely, Scott Hemker, Spanish Club Advisor, St. Louis High School
We identified our strengths and weaknesses as a district. In an effort to address the growth edges, several items of action were listed. The intent is not to do all of them right now, but implement a few of them each year. We are doing many things right already, but there are some areas of improvement that we can begin right away. We will use this information to guide the district forward and put our District Improvement Plan together. DSIT Happenings - March
Together we Can, Together we Do!
Our theme for parents, staff, and students of St. Louis Public Schools for the 2014-15 school year is: “Together we Can, Together we Do!” It takes all of us working together to support our children and continue to have such a fine upstanding community.
We will be celebrating the successes and building upon them to be a GREAT district for our community! We can raise student achievement; we can engage parents in the learning process; and, we can build community partnerships that support student achievement that last a lifetime.
“Together we Can, Together we Do!”
