Parade Information
The Homecoming Parade begins at 5:30 pm on Friday, October 3.  Line up begins at 5:00 pm on North Street by Frosty Cone. 
  • The first block of North Street west of Mill is reserved for various high school groups including Homecoming Court. 
  • Please approach line up from Watson Street (at Tony's) to North Street and fall in line behind the other parade entries. 
  • When the parade starts, it is important that we keep moving.  Please do not stop to take pictures, talk to observers, etc. Leaving a gap in the parade increases the likelihood of people attempting to cross the street. 
  • Please do not throw candy at observers.  Gently tossing it toward the ground is safer.  We also appreciate parents reminding young children not to run into the street to get candy. 
A Message from Kristi Teall, Superintendent
I would like to thank the community, staff, and students of St. Louis for the absolutely wonderful welcome back that I have received.  It is extremely humbling to hear the stories, compliments, and other things that I have been told since my return.

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.
 
Our future is exciting.  The St. Louis community supported a bond issue to improve our schools.  Thank you for that support.  Most of the work is scheduled to be done during the summer of 2015.  Stay tuned to the progress we will be making.  It is exciting to think of the changes that are coming.

Our district has made some gains academically. Three points of pride are:
1.  Our achievement gaps are beginning to close.  This can be difficult to do.  We need to be very proud of our teachers for their commitment and hard work. 
2.  The spring ACT scores have shown an increase in all core areas.  
3.  We have no focus schools or priority schools.

“Together we Can, Together we Do!” means we really need to work together.  In an effort to capitalize on that, we are working very hard to provide our teachers with common time to work and plan together on curriculum, instruction and assessments. 

We have two very distinct goals that each building is working on.  They are as follows:
1.  Creating and implementing a strong Multi-tiered System of Support for both academics and behaviors.  This will provide supports in all subject areas including behavior to improve achievement.
2.  Finalizing the Curriculum Maps to ensure all students are guaranteed the same strong curriculum and have the same expectations.

As I begin my year, I would like to say thank you for your support.  I am a member of our community and will continue to be so.  I will make decisions that affect our community in a positive manner.  Join me for coffee or conversation anytime.  I would love to sit down and talk to you and will be reaching out in various ways to do just that.  As always, my door is open for all stakeholders.  Please feel free to schedule an appointment to discuss great things going on or challenges that need to be addressed.  You can also visit our website at www.stlouisschools.net to see what’s happening in and around the district!

Educationally yours, Kristi Teall
