Pattonville celebrated the end of the year with an Oasis Appreciation Luncheon on May 24. The Oasis program trains volunteer senior adults to work one-on-one with elementary-aged children on language, reading and writing skills. During the event, tutors received special recognition for reaching milestones in their service to Pattonville students.
Members of the Pattonville community were in the stands at CityPark to see recent 2023 graduate Miguel “Miggy” Perez score his first MLS goal during the City SC match. This spring, the Pattonville School District inquired about getting a block of seats for a match to support VilleMade and Homegrown midfielder. It just so happened that 50 seats for the match on May 27 — just two days after graduation — were available. Those 50 tickets were offered to Pattonville High School staff, students and families via a random draw raffle system. In total, 16 families were able to purchase tickets to the match. The game, against Vancouver, ended with City winning 3-1 and Perez scoring in the fourth minute of stoppage time in the second half.
The Few. The Proud. The Bulldogs.
Members of the U.S. Marine Corps were at Bridgeway Elementary School on Tuesday to conduct a fitness and leadership opportunity with select fifth graders.
“The students' self discipline, ability to work together as a team and just the effort they are putting into the drills is impressive,” PE teacher Steve Jones said. “They are cheering each other on and motivating each other to finish everything they try.”
Work on Prop S, Pattonville’s $111 million no-tax-rate-increase bond issue, has begun. Voters in Pattonville approved Prop S in 2022 with a 79.4% favorable vote. Prop S work will fund projects at every school in Pattonville, including adding classrooms to address growth in student enrollment; providing safety and maintenance improvements; and updating school facilities to meet teaching and learning needs. Approval of the bond issue did not increase the district's tax rate. Work on the storm shelter additions at Bridgeway, Parkwood and Willow Brook elementary schools and the new gym at Holman Middle School is underway. Additionally, interior renovations at Parkwood, Willow Brook and Holman are also in progress.
The Bridgeway Elementary School K-Kids Green Team won first place in the elementary school division of the 2022-2023 Green Schools Quest challenge. There were 50 schools participating this year and the theme was climate change action. A cash award of $600 and a trophy was presented to club sponsors Jeanne Fernandez (reading specialist), Cheryl Sprengel (secretary) and Mary Kay Campbell (Pattonville board of education member) last week during a club meeting in recognition of their work for creating a healthier, greener environment for their school.
K-Kids is a year-long student service club that fourth and fifth graders commit to being a part of and is modeled and developed by Kiwanis International. Bridgeway has sponsored K-Kids Club for many years, but this year they added a Green Team component to it. The 32 club members continued to implement many service-oriented projects as in the past, but this year all of the projects included a sustainability focus, especially ways in which they can reduce waste in order to reduce climate change.
“I'm really proud of them all for sticking with it and working hard all year on the projects," Fernandez said.
