On Nov. 15, the Pattonville community came together for the second district Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP) meeting. The meeting began with district updates. Administrators shared changes to the proposed district CSIP plan following feedback from the first meeting on Sept. 20. In addition, an update on Prop S bond work was shared and suggestions from the September meeting regarding ESSER fund spending for the 2023-2024 school year were discussed.
Pattonville schools spent the weeks surrounding Veterans Day learning about and thanking local veterans for their service to the country. Several schools held special events.
Planning is underway for Prop S, Pattonville’s $111 million no-tax-rate-increase bond issue, and construction on some projects is expected to begin at the end of this school year. Prop S passed with a 79.4% favorable vote on the April 5 election ballot and funds 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. Prop S will not increase the district's tax rate.
The Kiwanis Kids (K-Kids) Green Team at Bridgeway Elementary held its first-ever pumpkin smash on Nov. 8. For the week after Halloween, the community was invited to drop off carved and uncarved pumpkins to the school. The purpose of the event was to reduce food waste.
The after-school club members and staff climbed up ladders and smashed the pumpkins to make compost for the Bridgeway garden and the community.
Bridgeway Elementary has six food garden beds in front of the school and the students prepared them before the event in order to create an outdoor STEM lab. The garden beds now have pumpkin pieces of various sizes, shapes and thicknesses so students can compare and contrast the speed of the decomposition process.
